Psychoacoustics and music: Intro refs?

Dear list,

A student of mine asked about the psychoacoustics of music, a topic on
which I know next to nothing.  I saw a recent collection at the MIT Press
catalog edited by Perry Cook titled "Music, Cognition, and Computerized
Sound: An Introduction to Psychoacoustics".  Is it as perfect a match as
it sounds?

Are there any other recommendations?  For a more general introduction I
was planning to lend her my copies of Handel and of Moore's edited volume.
Any other/better ideas?  Is there something more like a textbook or gentle
introduction to the concepts of psychoacoustics and their application to
music that fares well with students from nontechnical backgrounds?

Thank you in advance for your help.
