Overview
From the PREFACE.
It is the aim of this "Dictionary of Musical Terms" to furnish an accurate and concise explanation of any technical word or phrase which the student is apt to meet with. The English vocabulary will be found practically exhaustive. Want of space forbade making the foreign vocabulary equally so; but the editor has endeavored to preserve a proper balance by giving any term, appearing in either German, French, or Italian, in each of those languages, thus maintaining a consistent polyglot character so far as necessary limitations permitted.
The scope of the work, which is rather a dictionary than a lexicon, rendered the editor's task more that of a compiler than of an original investigator. Most of the material here presented has been gleaned from numerous standard works of reference, such as those of Grove (Dictionary), Riemann (Musik-Lexikon), Gevaert (Instrumentation), Weitzmann (History of Pianoforte-Playing), Stainer and Barrett, Ambros (Geschichte der Musik), Paul (Handlexikon), Soullier (Dictionnaire), Helmholtz (Tonempfindungen), Niecks, The Century Dictionary, many English, German, French, and Italian periodicals and musical journals, etc., etc. Literal quotations are duly credited to their sources; condensations and adaptations, however, are, for obvious reasons, not so credited, and must, therefore, be included under this general acknowledgment. The information so gathered has been carefully sifted, and supplemented by the personal researches of over ten years.
