Excerpt from The Story of British Music and the Earlier French Musicians
But it must be confessed that if our leaders of thought and men of action, and countless singers, players, and listeners, know but little of the longest musical story in the world - that of our own school of composition - the fault cannot wholly be laid at their own door. For despite much musico-literary activity in recent years, there has hitherto been no record of the course which musical evolution has followed in our own country likely to attract the attention and meet the needs of the general reader.
Hence the present volume - less a history than a story of British music on its social and more human side.
