"Excerpt from Master Musicians: A Book for Players, Singers and Listeners
The only thing requiring to be said by way of preface to this book is, that it does not pretend to be critical. Technicalities have been expressly avoided. It is about the men themselves rather than about their music that I have chosen to write. Further, I have had in view the amateur rather than the professional, and the young reader rather than the adult; though I would fain hope that the book may interest all who love and practise the art of Bach."
