This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of this handbook, which is to explain how and why music may evoke emotion in a listener. The aim is to provide a volume that, in true handbook fashion, provides useful practical information that can guide researchers, for instance regarding the measurement of emotions. More generally, the handbook provides a representative coverage of approaches that may be said to define the field of music and emotion, in all its breadth and depth. An overview of the eight sections of the book is presented.
