"Can it therefore with truth be said ... that the
people who excelled in the composition of the madrigal,
who possess thousands of the most beautiful popular
melodies, who invented the anthem, and the glee,
and carried the part-song to so great a degree of
perfection, are not musical?

"For Englishmen and searchers after truth there will
be found no greater incentive to a patriotic defence
of their musical qualifications ... than in the examination
of a particular branch in which their countrymen hold a
position entirely unique." pp. 348-349.
