Applied – Williams and Bach. You need both to be able to identify key features on a blank anthology (you can come and practice in the classroom if you wish but don’t take them downstairs) and also to understand the main topics (e.g. what is meant by Lutheran). Use the revision notes that were handed out in class – they are also on Moodle.

Listening – read through the notes on short answer questions that are in the Course Handbook (available also online on http://www.alevelmusic.com) and also you could review the information on genre and instrumentation in the detailed GSMIRTH glossary as well as the style period information in the Short History of Music.
