A Concise History of Music from the Commencement of the Christian Era to the Present Time
1898. For the Use of Students. The plan of this little History is so distinct-as far as I am aware-from that of any other work upon the same subject, that a careful perusal of these prefatory explanations will greatly help the reader in his study of the book. It would be more correct to say that all previous Histories of Music are distinguished from the present effort in the respect that they have no plan at all, beyond the two very general features of chronological order (rarely adhered to) and a grouping of composers and events into a number of schools.
