Music Theory

1)`Study of Counterpoint` by John J. Fux
Still one of the best books on the subject. There is nothing else to say.

Orchestration

1)`Acoustic and MIDI Orchestration for the contemporary composer` by Andrea Pejrolo and Richard DeRosa
An excellent book detailing how to create good sounding renditions in your sequencer. The instructions can be easily applied to MIDI files exported from Sibelius.

  • Gardner Read
  • Steven Powell's Engraving Music Today, which is specifically geared to Computer users, with examples from both Finale and Sibelius, and both informative and entertaining!
  • Alfred Publishing's 'pocket-sized' Dictionary of Music
  • Ted Ross It's a bit old - pre-computer, but gives a good overview of engraving, what went into the process, and is helpful in thinking about how we lay out scores. It was, in its time, a “how to” book, and now is something of a “how it was”; but while the method has changed, the conventions and rules are still applicable.
  • Kurt Stone's Music Notation in the 20th Century - good index
