A History of Music

Excerpt

In Englishing M. Landormy admirable Histoire de la Musique, the translator has taken no liberties with the author's ideas or their presentation, presenting any queries or commentaries suggesting themselves in the shape of foot-notes. He has, however, added to the "Bibliographies" with which each chapter closes, and which are intended for the convenience of the reader who wishes to inform himself still further with regard to the subjects considered. The reader of the book, in many cases, must of necessity have recourse to works written in English, and the addition of titles of works in his own language seemed essential.

The supplementary chapter on American music is intended to round out the volume in a logical manner, and give it a completeness which--from an American point of view, at any rate --it could not otherwise hope to possess.

FREDERICK H. MARTENS.
