World Sound Matters is a fully-integrated anthology of music from around the world, comprising:

* 2 compact discs of 58 traditional music recordings, representing 35 different countries
* notated transcriptions of each recorded example
* explanatory texts covering the special context of each style and its musical content
* 2 sets of progressive pupil listening-based questions for each musical style

suitable for use at GCSE and A level. Each unit is free-standing and can be used effectively on its own. Alternatively, multiple units can be combined, in any order, to provide an Introduction to the musical traditions of the world.

The music incorporated in World Sound Matters has been carefully selected and prepared by the author in consultation with other music specialists and professionals actively engaged in music education. Two aims have been paramount: on the one hand, readers need analyses of a wide range of musical traditions which are both authoritative and yet remain accessible to the non-specialist; on the other hand, the many musicians whose work appears on the sound recording deserve a thorough and sympathetic study which neither cheapens nor dilutes their artistry. The result is a publication which should be of practical use to a wide range of musicians, from secondary school teachers to their pupils, from adults interested in knowing more about world music to music students wishing to specialize in this field, and to composers.
