About this title


Excerpt from Outspoken Essays on Music

Legends abound as regards the power of expression, the truly superhuman results, obtained by this primary music. Wild animals crawling at the feet of Orpheus; Saul's madness soothed and calmed by the strains of David's harp the vocation or calling of the Buddha determined by the vibrations of the strings of a Vina; the passions of Alexander roused or lulled at will by the various melodies drawn from a lyre, with out speaking of walls erected by the music of Amphion's lyre or dashed to the ground by the trumpets of the Hebrews. Wide is our choice among the phenomena of the marvellous, wherein the potency of the results effected contrasts strangely with the poverty of the means employed to bring them about.
