Misc. Comments

“The plan of the volume is, I think, new. It amounts to this: that the reader is presented with a complete composition [ A Festival Te Deum, by Walter Henry Hall ], and is then taken through it bar by bar, almost as if in conversation with a friendly critic. First, the musical difficulties of the work are considered in large blocks, as it were; the orchestral possibilities of each passage are then balanced one against the other; then, when a decision has been made, the details of the orchestral execution are taken up and explained.” (From the Preface.)
