Hi guys.

So recently I stumbled upon the book "18th Century Counterpoint" by Kent Kennan online. It's continueing to be a great resource for self-study of practical counterpoint. But, at the end of each chapter there is a suggested list of assignments which are to be found in the workbook that comes with this textbook.

The problem is, I live in the Netherlands and I've searched in several libraries near my home town and had no luck yet. I also looked if I could buy it but it isn't for sale in the Netherlands and letting it ship from the US via Amazon would, A: cost a few weeks, and B: cost me 160 dollars. So is there anyone who has this book and can send me a copy.

Here is a link to the textbook so you can see which book I'm talking about:

Thanks in advance.
Marijn

I think there are better counterpoint texts out there depending on what you are actually interested in.

Well, I'm interested mostly in putting into practice counterpoint like late Bach and Beethoven did it. What do you suggest?

Peter Westergaard's Introduction to Tonality

https://web.archive.org/web/20070310235031/http://www.artsci.wustl.edu/~rsnarren/221/
(you might have to explore webarchive to find the most recent version of the above)

Counterpoint in Composition by Salzer and Schachter

And Schenker if you don't mind his diatribes.

Thanks for that! I'll look if I can find one (or both) of them as soon as I can too!

PM me about one of them.  It's out of print (the Westergaard text), but it's easily one of the more clarifying texts on music you will ever read.
