Pan Cogito And His Latest Musical Conundrum

Choose from one of the following three two-semester Western music history survey courses required – or once required - of all undergraduate music majors at the University of California (Berkeley), Swarthmore, and Yale:

1. History of Musical Style: 400 to 1800 and 1800 to the present (1971-72)

2. Topics in Medieval and Renaissance Music History; and Topics in Music History 1760 to 1911 (Haydn and Mozart to Mahler and Verdi) (1972-73)

3. Music History 1600-1800; and Music History 1800-1960 (2011-12)

Don't the second and third options devalue Baroque, Medieval, Renaissance, and Contemporary Classical Western music?
