About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1924, this book contains a concise introduction to the study of musical history, providing accessible information on the growth and development of musical forms. There is some biographical detail on the lives of musicians, but the focus of the text is mainly restricted to a chronological account of the nature of musical structure. Numerous illustrative figures and musical scores are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the historical development of music and musical education.
