by Percy A. Scholes

“The Book of the Great Musicians, designed for the children on lines calculated to interest them, is an addition to the most important branch of musical education.  Its very simplicity is its highest recommendation; it invites the children’s confidence and stimulates their curiosity; it makes the whole thing rather like a game in which an individual child or a whole class may find a great deal of pleasure.  It combines in a happy way the basic facts of music (such as melody, harmony, structure) with the living examples in composition and the personal qualities of history.”
