About this Item

With an Introduction by Edward J. Dent. Second Revised and Enlarged Edition. Copenhagen and London, 1946. Large octavo, original printed wrappers. 306 pages, indexed. Former owner's ink stamp (small) on endleaf and front cover. A very good copy. First Edition. "It is not a life of Palestrina, nor even a comprehensive study of his works; it sets out merely to investigate Palestrina's treatment of dissonance. But the study of dissonance in Palestrina involves the study of almost every element that contributes to his general style, and that study further involves a consideration of his predecessors and a consideration of the psychological principles underlying all musical composition.the student of musical history will derive a far more illuminating view of medieval music than is to be found in many professed studies of that remote and difficult subject. The practical musician who wishes to perform some work of Palestrina may learn much that is new as regards its interpretation." (the Introduction). Bookseller Inventory # 9129
