GCSE Music Set Works (condensed info)

These are the condensed notes I made for my exams this year, it contains every area of study's analysis of the set pieces. HOWEVER, it does NOT contain the background to the composers/bands; it's purely the analysis of their pieces.

And I'm sorry the part for Rag Desh isn't as detailed as the others because I tried to find general characteristics for each version, but it's hard. So if you want my notes on this particular piece, just comment and I'll scan them in.
