This delightful book is for anyone who enjoys any of the lively arts of opera, drama, film, literature, or popular song and who wants to find out what is really going on in the symphonies of Mozart, the string quartets of Beethoven, and the orchestral works of Debussy and Ravel, to name a few. As Father M. Owen Lee examines the works of fifty composers here, he imparts the basics of classical music with such wit and patache, dropping such charming biographical tidbits, you will be amazed - as you laugh out lous - at how much fun you're having. At the same time you will find out how music can express feelings that are too deep for words.

An internationally known commentator on music and the arts, Father Lee writes with a style that has been called "rich, dense, and profound" (Citizen's Weekly), "highly readable" (Choice), and "often irreverently amusing" (Opera News). With Father Lee as a guide, the intricacies of classical music are rendered not only intelligable but meaningful, the music becomes life-enhancing, and its great composers come vividly to life. You will never listen to classical music in the same way again.
