Excerpt from Everybody's Guide to Music: With Illustrated Chapters on Singing and Cultivation of the Voice; Full and Explicit Helps to the Piano and Organ; Complete Dictionary of Musical Terms

The foundation of every Art is laid in Nature. From the cave has grown the cathedral, in architectural art. From the reflected scene or image upon the water's surface has grown the oil-painting, water-color drawing, or photograph, in pictorial art. From the chance resemblance to some living form in one of Nature's tempest-hewn rocks has grown the statue, in sculptural art. And from the humming of the bee, the singing of the birds, or the whistling of the wind over broken hollow reeds, has grown the chorale, the sonata, and the symphony, in the musical art.

The painter and the sculptor still are students in the school of Nature. Daily she supplies them with fresh scenes of beauty, new forms of loveliness, which earnestly they strive to copy. It is not theirs to invent, since Nature's forms are perfect, and cannot be excelled in marble or on canvas. In decorative art, however, and still more conspicuously in architectural art, we see the putting forth of man's originality of thought and plan. The cathedral, with its stately pillars, domes, and arches, its windows, rich in color, form, and tracery, gives to the eye a pleasure such as we can find in no examples which the natural world affords.

But in the art of music the inventive genius of the human mind is still more manifest. On every hand, in the compositions of the many masters of the art, and in the many musical instruments of man's design and construction, we see monuments to his fertility of brain.
