Ulrich's book is a comprehensive and thorough history of exactly what the title claims, music and musical style. The reader is taken from the musical beginnings of ancient times up to the modern day, analyzing both the styles and the composers that created them. It encroaches upon more musical information than any other book I've yet to read, as it flawlessly combines history and style. If one has the time to devote to such a complex book, I can't recommend it enough.
