READING: This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. For courses in Music Theory A text/workbook combination that gives students the tools to understand harmonic structures With an emphasis on learning by doing, The Practice of Harmony, Seventh Edition takes students from music fundamentals through harmony in common practice to some of the more important harmonic procedures of the 20th century. Its approach is “additive” — enabling students to use what was learned in one chapter to understand material in the next — to minimize rote memorization, since students repeatedly use the concepts throughout the semester. The text begins with an overview of music fundamentals; the middle addresses the use of harmony in common practice; and the concluding section offers a basic glimpse of the harmonic practices of the 20th century. The authors intentionally avoid elaborate descriptions of their conceptual framework and refrain from specifying instructional methods, thereby allowing instructors a wide spectrum of teaching approaches in the classroom. NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

READING: Love is perfect, but relationships aren't. They're made of two people with flaws, baggage and weaknesses. While they say that practice makes perfect, no amount of practice would make us into something other than human. But maybe there's something else we can hope to get with practice... something like the experience that comes when you've been at a job for a while, and what once seemed impossible starts to become second nature. In this day of age, with divorce rates on the rise, we need all the practice we can get. To tackle the ever-growing problem of fading love, let's take a practical approach to the problem. Let's bring harmony... with practice.

READING: Few theorists have had such in-depth command of the diverse disciplines relating to the history of music theory as FranC'ois-Joseph FC)tis. Superbly lucid and systematic, his Complete Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Harmony is one of the most important and influential documents of the nineteenth century, witness its twenty-one printings between 1844 and 1903. Drawing upon ideas set forth by writers such as Choron and Jelensberger, FC)tis fleshed out a historical approach to the theory of tonality, formulating his famous categories of unitonic, transitonic, pluritonic, and omnitonic harmonic orders. The third and fourth of these categories involve the enharmonic reinterpretation of pitches and offer insights into the expanded modulatory practices of the nineteenth century. This excellent new translation is based on the ninth edition (1867), the last to be modified by the author, and includes the introduction to the ninth edition, the philosophical preface to the third edition, and FC)tis's response to criticisms of his theory in a twenty-page addendum.

READING: Eleven Thousand MODERN HARMONY IN ITS THEORY AND PRACTICE BY ARTHUR FOOTE A. M. AND WALTER R. SPALDING A. M. Assistant Professor of Music at Harvard University PRICE 1.50 ARTHUR P. SCHMIDT BOSTON LEIPZIG NEW YORK 120 BOYLSTOH STREET 136 FIFTH AVENUE Copyright 1905 by ARTHUK P. SCHMIDT PREFACE THE title of this work indicates the aim of the authors. Not a few statements and rules have been current in text-books that., from the point, of view of composers and of the best teachers to-day, are unnecessary and sometimes even incorrect. When we find a rule constantly broken by one great composer after another, it is probable that the rule ought to be mod ified or given up, and not that the composers are wrong. It is the inten tion that statements and rules in this book shall be expressed with exact truth, and explained when real explanation is possible. It has also been remembered that better work is secured by directions as to what may be done, than by laying too much stress upon what is forbidden. About some matters there is a marked difference of opinion among theorists such things cannot be considered as settled for good and all, and no definite statement should be made excluding other well-grounded points of view, e. g. the chords of the llth and 13th. The chord of the 6th has been treated with more detail than usual, an attempt having been made to analyze and classify the features that make this chord so difficult for the student. While the old strict rules as to secondary 7ths are given fully, the modern theory and use of these chords have received just consideration. The chord of the 9th has been discussed as a largely independent chord it was also obvious that the growing feelingabout chords of the llth and 13th ought to be recognized, although the opinion of the authors, as ex plained in the chapter on that subject, is that these latter can seldom be classified as independent chords. It is believed that the treatment of chromatic alterations in chords, and of the augmented 6th, 6-5 and 6-4-3 chords is in accordance with present thought, and that this is also the case as regards suspension. The chapter on the old modes is necessarily brief, but it is hoped that it may lead the student to further investigation of an important and inter esting question. It is often the case that exercises with figured basses are written, correctly, but only mathematically, by simply reckoning each chord as-a kind of puzzle, without reflecting that the whole thing means music after 5341S6O PREFACE all. The most difficult thing, for one not used to it, is the having a mental conception of the real sounds of the symbols written down in other words, hearing with the eye. Education now is directed to the thing, not to the symbol. As the practical way of working in that direction, in this book from the very beginning the harmonizing of melodies goes step by step with the writing from figured basses. It is hoped that the illustra tions quoted from many composers will be of help by showing what has actually been done with our harmonic material. For matters connected with acoustics 5, 13, the student is referred to Helmholtzs book On the Sensations of Tone, and to the essay on Partial Tones in Groves Dictionary of Music BOSTON, August, 1905.

READING: PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

READING: Originally published in 1937. COLOUR HARMONY ITS THEORY AND PRACTICE by ARTHUR B. ALLEN. FOREWORD: Colour Harmony: Its Theory and Practice is closely linked to Colour Harmony for Beginners and I think the reason is clear. Whereas Colour Harmony for Beginners is a little volume so written that the newcomer to this science of colour can begin right away with pencil and colour box, working out the beauties that are to be found in the field of colour harmony, the present volume gives all this practical assist ance and, in addition, it gives the essential background knowledge without which the teacher and the student may find themselves at a loss. It is one thing to know the mere mechanics of doing. It is another thing to know the raison f& tre for so doing. Colour Harmony: Its Theory and Practice has been designed to cover clearly and concisely both spheres. I have been guided in my choice of subjects included in this volume by the numerous questions asked of me in my lectures during the past two years. I have been guided also by the topics discussed in letters sent to me by members of my audiences after my lectures were concluded and my listeners had had time to reflect upon my words. By taking my public work as my guide in the selection of points of interest in this volume, I feel that not only am I on sure ground but that also I shall be able to touch upon points of majority interest. It is more than possible that the reader will find his or her own particular problem ignored. This is almost inevitable since as I have em phasised in my work, colour is essentially an individual study. Should this be so then most cordially I invite correspondence for in the frank exchange of ideas, opinions and experiences lies the laying of sound foundation for creative work. Readers will be able to find me c/ o the publishers. ARTHUR B. ALLEN. London, 1937. CONTENTS CHAPTER PAGE FOREWORD .... 5 I. COLOUR VOCABULARY . . 9 II. COLOUR STORIES . . . . II HI.

THERE is a language of colour as there is a specific language for every other specified activity. And as usual with a special vocabulary some confusion results in exact meanings. In this chapter I aim to set forth the main colour words and to state a definition that may be generally accepted. I aim at a majority acceptance, for it will not be possible for a long time yet to standardise terms absolutely. One can get near to this desired standardisation toward which I aim. Teachers will be doing signal service if they insist upon exactitude in definitions as they insist upon exactitude in grammatic and in scientific definitions. It makes the foundation of colour science so much more accessible to the man in the street. And contrary to some opinions it does not result in a cramping of the creative impulses. On the contrary it releases them more profusely for it removes the mind-fogging con fusion right at the onset. The beginning of our colour work is with the hues. The term hue indicates the chromatic value of a colour. Colour in the past has been misused. The term should include the black, grey and white. For colours not including these three neutrals the term chroma is more accurate.

READING: It is crucial today to understand how religions can exist harmoniously in a shared environment, whether local or global. A reasoned approach to this question was sought by participants at a stimulating conference of the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR) in a predominantly Muslim country, Indonesia. Themes treated include the relation between theoretical approaches and religious viewpoints, practical problems and conflict resolution at the local level, and religious education with special reference to the role of Muslim schools (pesantren) in Indonesia.

READING: “A major contribution . . . not only to Puccini studies but also to the study of nineteenth-century Italian opera in general.” —Nineteenth-Century Music Review In this groundbreaking survey of the fundamentals, methods, and formulas that were taught at Italian music conservatories during the 19th Century, Nicholas Baragwanath explores the compositional significance of tradition in Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Boito, and, most importantly, Puccini. Taking account of some 400 primary sources, Baragwanath explains the varying theories and practices of the period in light of current theoretical and analytical conceptions of this music. The Italian Traditions and Puccini offers a guide to an informed interpretation and appreciation of Italian opera by underscoring the proximity of archaic traditions to the music of Puccini. “Dense and challenging in its detail and analysis, this work is an important addition to the growing corpus of Puccini studies. . . . Highly recommended.” —Choice
