Makers of Music : Biographical Sketches of the Great Composers, with Chronological Summaries of Their Works, Portraits, Facsimiles of Their Compositions and a General Chronological Table (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Makers of Music: Biographical Sketches of the Great Composers, With Chronological Summaries of Their Works, Portraits, Facsimiles of Their Compositions and a General Chronological Table The author's endeavor throughout this work has been to convey an impression of the personality of each composer, rather than merely to furnish a collection of biographical detail. A Chronological Summary of Works is appended to the chapter devoted to each composer, and a general Chrono logical Table to the whole. Some of the chapters originally appeared in The Sun, and the author is indebted to the editor of that magazine for a cordial acquiescence in his proposal to incorporate them in this volume.
