About the Book:

The work which is now published has been the result of much study and research during a term of foreign service while the author`s regiment was in India. And it is hoped that the information here offered for the first time may prove of itnerest, and may assist in some small degree in supplying a want hitherto felt among musicians and students of National musical literature. To render the book of greater value, and to assist those who may make further research, a catalogue of various works with the subject has been added, together with a carefully prepared list of various Sanskrit authorities. Notice has been taken of the legendary origin of music among the Aryans, and of its principles as understood in Modern India; the peculiar scale and rhythms employed have been described in detail; and examples of various airs are given in notation. In order to show the principles of form upon which the Indian musicians construct their melodies an analysis of some of the example has been attempted.<-p>
