Applying the basic theme to music, we find evidence to support the principle that western music has rational properties which are produced by the social development of occidental insti­tutions.” Journal of Music Theory.



  The idea of exploring the conditions of coexistence of music and society is a good one and should interest music educators.” Journal of Research in Music Education.

  This is a book which will obviously be of value to the serious student of musical theory in its relation to the sciences.” The Musical Times
