24, line 7form (not from)
25, line 2In the first line after ex. 4.4, delete "So by octave reduction" and add "Thus" so that the sentence now begins, "Thus, a scalar......."
31, table 5.1sa (italics)
80, line 2The sentence should begin, "Notice that the tone D has (in the lattice)......" The next sentence should begin, "Notice also (in the scale)..."
119, ex. 16.13The sunburst should be around A, not C.
159, ex. 21.7Add tie in alto, bar 2 to 3; delete the flat before the A in the alto of bar 3.
213, ex. 25.19The tie is missing in the soprano G between bars 3 and 4.
221, ex. 25.41At the head of the piece it should read "cantabile, expressively"
270, fig. 29.6 The "dm" symbol on the right is misplaced. It should be:gdm
267, tbl. 28.1In the "Easy" part of the table, line 3 of the left column should be "Two pa's up" (instead of "Two fifths up") and, correspondingly, the right column should be "Two pa's down". The "Not so easy" section must be revised as follows:
272, par 5, line 3"Homebody" (capital H)
326, ex. 32.18bar 2, F# not Gb
326, line 10delete "which is tonicized"

482, ex. 42.17"x+y" should be "x+z"
502, line 3"Figure 43.2" should be "Figure 43.4"
507Two chord symbols are wrong. In bar 21 the symbol should be F#m7 (b5) for the full bar, and in bar 22, B7 for the full bar (thus agreeing more fully with fig. 43.10)
523-4Diaschisma should precede diatonic
526meend is out of order, mode is out of order
530A double asterisk ** should be added after the word "DERIVATION" that heads the right-hand column, then the following footnote appended: "** In this glossary, dha refers to the 5:3 major sixth."
