Excerpt

Under the inspiring guidance of my mentor, Curt Sachs, this work was conceived, planned, and executed. It gained in dimension under the acute and patient perusal of Gustave Reese to whose brilliant propensity for clarity of thought and of style I owe a huge debt.

Furthermore, the helpful suggestions made by Martin Bernstein and by Jan LaRue are gratefully acknowledged.

If Jaap Kunst had not kindly gone to the trouble of ordering, supervising the construction of, and mailing to me from Amsterdam his personally designed monochord, an important section of this work could not have taken form.

This preface is not complete, of course, without final thanks to my husband, Harvey B. Natanson, for his sustained interest and encouragement.

R.B.
