Excerpt from Six Lectures on Harmony: Delivered at the Royal Institute of Great Britain, Before Easter, 1867
H E that hears music without the ability to dis criminate its constituents, resembles one who witnesses a dramatic performance in an unknown foreign language, who may be charmed by the gestures and the elocution of the actors, and even interested in the course of the action, but, understanding not the words that are spoken, must be dead to the poetry of the work. The purpose of these Lectures is to stimulate such persons, if may be, to investigate the elements of a work of musical art, as a means of quickening their perception of its beauties.
