Excerpt from A Complete History of Music, for Schools, Clubs, and Private Readings The plan of arrangement used in this book has in view a combination of the recitation and lecture systems, and affords an opportunity for teachers to apply the best principles of both. The paragraph headings should be thoroughly fixed in mind and close attention should be given to the words in heavy type and Italics that occur in the body of a paragraph; together they form a convenient outline for the lesson. The questions at the end of each lesson are to be used to test the pupil's mastery of the lesson material; all available works of reference should be consulted for fuller information than the limited space of one book will admit of, each member of the class preparing one or more abstracts to be read before the class. The review outlines and suggestions are to be used in the same way, special attention being given to written answers such as would be required in an examination. With a view of furnishing the reader a considerable amount of material on the growth of music as an art, biographical sketches have been made short, especially since so many excellent works of that description are available at a small price. Emphasis has been laid on the work of the men who developed music, on the influences which shaped their careers and the permanent value of their contributions to music. A clear knowledge of how music reached its present state is not to be had by studying books, biographical and critical; the works of the composers must be examined, played and sung, compared, analyzed as to methods of construction (Form) and expression (Melody, Harmony and Rhythm), so that the student may appreciate the change from simple, elementary processes to the free, polyphonic style found in the complex modern piano and orchestral scores.

Author Chappell's intent with The History of Music (Art and Science): Volume One – From the Earliest Records to the Fall of the Roman Empire was to produce a complete history of music. Beginning with the earliest evidence of music, which largely comes from the Greeks, Chappel attempts to trace the development of the art through to modern day. Volume One, presented here, traces the history of music until the fifth century. The book actually opens where many works conclude, with a detailed glossary and explanatory index. From there, Chappel begins his historical examination in earnest. Opening chapters highlight the early Greek system of music, the three-stringed lyre of Egypt, the development of harmonies, and the earliest uses of music. Later chapters discuss early designs of instruments and the importance of music in the Roman Empire. The volume concludes with a brief section of notes and addendums. The History of Music is a noble effort at documenting the history of the art, Chappell is clearly a well-researched and knowledgeable writer. The work includes a fair amount of technical analysis, and thus is best read by an individual with some knowledge of the principals of music theory. Chappell's first volume in his series The History of Music is a well-written and worthy attempt at documenting the early history of the development of music. Students of history, particularly those interested in music history, will certainly find this to be a fascinating work.

Excerpt from A History of Music, Vol. 2 Face to face with a great law pervading the development of all Musics, and that the music of individual nations or individual races must necessarily pass through the same phases of growth as the Music of that general nation or race whose history we pick out from the ways and doings of modern savages, and whom we acknowledge as the Author and Creator of us all under the name of Primitive Man. And he thinks that when individual nations or races parted or separated themselves from the originally collective human stock, they did but work out over again under more complex surroundings the same problems which had been solved before in a state of simplicity, and that they solved them and still continue to solve them in much the same way as at first. In this way he believes, that had we sufficiency of materials for reconstructing the complete history of music among each of those ancient nations whom we have been considering in this Book, we should find that in each case there was a Rhythmic Period at the beginning, then a Melodic, and then a Harmonic Period, as these three periods went evenly off in that mythology of History which we call Prehistoric Times. But when we come to that particular branch of the human race to which we ourselves belong, and which was so much slower of ripening than the precocious Hamites, Semites, or Mongoloid families, and whose end is not yet, he fancies that by peering into its past, and treating the present as its bloom and lustre, he will be able to set forth the characteristics of what we may call the Rhythmic Period of Music ln all its minuteness. For over and above the penchants and peculiarities of races, and the complete consummation of our three periods in the finished history of individual nations, whose life and death form separate.
