Item Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 1965. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Rev ed.. 195 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The most celebrated book on counterpoint is Fux s great theoretical work ?Gradus ad Parnassum.? Since its appearance in 1725, it has been used by and has directly influenced the work of many of the greatest composers. J.S. Bach held it in high esteem, Leopold Mozart trained his famous son from its pages, Haydn worked out every lesson with meticulous care, and Beethoven condensed it into an abstract for ready reference. An impressive list of nineteenth-century composers subscribed to its second edition, and in more recent times Paul Hindemith said, Perhaps the craft of composition would really have fallen into decline if Fux s ?Gradus? had not set up a standard. Originally written in Latin, ?Steps to Parnassus? was translated into the principal European languages, but the only English version was a free paraphrase published in 1886. The present translation by Alfred Mann is therefore the first faithful rendering in English from the original Latin and presents the essence of Fux s teachings. For its distinction as a classic and its undiminished usefulness for the modern student it is a privilege to offer this fine translation in the Norton Library.

Item Description: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 100 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.From the Authors PREFACE: THE original idea of the following little work I owe to the Rev. Charles Tarver, Rector of Ilketshall, Suffolk, whose experience, while engaged in preparing pupils for Eton, had shown him the want which beginners felt of some further assistance than was supplied by my Gradus. The lists of Epithets, as given in the old Gradus, which marked only the quantity, and was silent as to the meaning of the words it gave, had long been seen by everyone to be productive of nothing but mischief, as preventing boys from thinking instead of teaching them to think; but my Gradus, which wholly discards them, substituting instead phrases selected from the Augustan poets, requires perhaps, more thought than very young beginners are capable of. In this book, therefore, which is only meant for those who are beginning to do verses out of their own sense, I have endeavoured not merely to supply them with sufficient help, but, by giving the meaning of the Epithets, to lead them to think for themselves, and to consider, not merely the quantity of the word, but its sense, so that they may judge of each adjective in connection with the subject of which they are writing, and so may select an appropriate one. As this book does not profess to be a complete Dictionary, but is only meant as a sort of Appendix to my Gradus, I have not thought it necessary either to give every Latin substantive, or even every meaning of those which are to be found in it. But at the same time, while, in order to compress it within the smallest practicable space, I have omitted many words and many meanings, I hope it will be found that I have given all those for which a beginner is likely to require an Epithet.

Item Description: Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1882 edition. Excerpt: . Gradus ad Parnassum was invented by a Jesuit, concertations, declamations, and the acting of Latin plays. In the three lower classes half-an-hour a day had been devoted to Greek, in the two upper this time was doubled. If we may judge by the list of Greek authors which were supposed to be read, considerable proficiency must have been attained. It comprises Demosthenes, Plato, Thucydides, Homer, Hesiod, Pindar, and others of the same kind, Gregory ot Nazianzen, Basil, Chiysostom, writings of Lucian, Plutarch, Herodian, Sophocles, and Euripides. But we know that this imposing parade meant but little, and that but little energy and vigour were really put into this study. All knowledge which was not language or style was classed;by the Jesuits under the name of erudition, and to this v /were to be devoted extraneous hours, but no portion of I/ the regular curriculum. These subjects might properly be learned on whole holidays, or got up by students as preparation for examinations. Among the subjects of erudition were included arithmetic, history, geography, and the elements of algebra and geometry. Let us examine the daily work of a Jesuit school. The bell sounds at half-past six, and the scholars gradually assemble. At seven all attend mass, and at half-past seven the work of the day begins. After a short prayer, the master mounts his desk, and the boys say their lessons by heart to the dtcurions, while the master collects and corrects the exercises, and hears some lessons himself. From eight to nine the lessons of the day before are gone over, and a lecture is given on the new matter to be learnt during the day. At nine the subject of a short composition is given out, which must be written, corrected, and copied out within the hour. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781230257259

Item Description: W. W. Norton & Company. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 160 pages. Dimensions: 7.7in. x 5.0in. x 0.5in.The essence of the most celebrated book on counterpoint, Fuxs Gradus ad Parnassum. The most celebrated book on counterpoint is Fuxs great theoretical work Gradus ad Parnassum. Since its appearance in 1725, it has been used by and has directly influenced the work of many of the greatest composers. J. S. Bach held it in high esteem, Leopold Mozart trained his famous son from its pages, Haydn worked out every lesson with meticulous care, and Beethoven condensed it into an abstract for ready reference. An impressive list of nineteenth-century composers subscribed to its second edition, and in more recent times Paul Hindemith said, Perhaps the craft of composition would really have fallen into decline if Fuxs Gradus had not set up a standard. Originally written in Latin, Steps to Parnassus was translated into the principal European languages, but the only English version was a free paraphrase published in 1886. The present translation by Alfred Mann is therefore the first faithful rendering in English from the original Latin and presents the essence of Fuxs teachings. For its distinction as a classic and its undiminished usefulness for the modern student it is a privilege to offer this fine translation in the Norton Library.

Item Description: Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1882 edition. Excerpt: . Gradus ad Parnassum was invented by a Jesuit, concertations, declamations, and the acting of Latin plays. In the three lower classes half-an-hour a day had been devoted to Greek, in the two upper this time was doubled. If we may judge by the list of Greek authors which were supposed to be read, considerable proficiency must have been attained. It comprises Demosthenes, Plato, Thucydides, Homer, Hesiod, Pindar, and others of the same kind, Gregory ot Nazianzen, Basil, Chiysostom, writings of Lucian, Plutarch, Herodian, Sophocles, and Euripides. But we know that this imposing parade meant but little, and that but little energy and vigour were really put into this study. All knowledge which was not language or style was classed;by the Jesuits under the name of erudition, and to this v /were to be devoted extraneous hours, but no portion of I/ the regular curriculum. These subjects might properly be learned on whole holidays, or got up by students as preparation for examinations. Among the subjects of erudition were included arithmetic, history, geography, and the elements of algebra and geometry. Let us examine the daily work of a Jesuit school. The bell sounds at half-past six, and the scholars gradually assemble. At seven all attend mass, and at half-past seven the work of the day begins. After a short prayer, the master mounts his desk, and the boys say their lessons by heart to the dtcurions, while the master collects and corrects the exercises, and hears some lessons himself. From eight to nine the lessons of the day before are gone over, and a lecture is given on the new matter to be learnt during the day. At nine the subject of a short composition is given out, which must be written, corrected, and copied out within the hour. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781230257259
