Packed with information

Between them, these two books [Learn by the Masters] set out to develop your ability to harmonise, analyse, compose and arrange music. Their author, Sten Ingelf, is professor of music theory at Malmö Academy of Music in Sweden.

The second book, Arranging for Two to Five Parts, seems at first to be rather specific. In fact the title doesn’t do it justice, as it covers partwriting, voice-leading, canon, ornamentation, and indeed most skills required to compose, not just arrange, in a classical style. The opening chapter on melody makes way for chapters on two-part, three-part and four-part writing, concluding with a chapter on polyphony, and each chapter includes numerous musical examples drawn from the classical repertoire.

Of the two books [Learn by the Masters], this one arguably offers the most original journey through its subject matter, but both are incredibly detailed, packed with information and highly recommended.
