The technique of orchestration by Kent Kennan( Book )

74 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chief impetus for this third edition was essentially the same as that for the second: the desire to bring information on instruments and orchestral practice up to date. As in the earlier editions, the emphasis is on the practical fundamentals of orchestration. No attempt has been made to give a detailed account of the construction of instruments, and historical background has been included only where it seemed essential to an understanding of the modern instruments or of scores of an earlier period. It is assumed that students who are studying orchestration from this book have already had a thorough training in harmony. - Publisher
Counterpoint : based on eighteenth-century practice by Kent Kennan( Book )

35 editions published between 1959 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed for courses in Music, " this established text introduces the contrapuntal style of 17th and 18th century music through analysis and writing. While a limited understanding of contrapuntal elements may be gained through analysis alone, these elements are grasped in a more intimate way through the actual writing of contrapuntal examples. Also, by linking the study of counterpoint to music of a specific period, the text provides a clear model for students to emulate and a definite basis for the criticism of student work
