Music pervades all nature. There is nothing in nature that arouses our attention of eaffects our feelings so quickly as a sound. The book furnishes an account of the music of various nations-civilized ot uncivilized, on the face of the habitable globe. A few facts concerning Hindu music are given a place in the Appendix.It is generally accepted that most countries have a music of their own, the character of which may be called national. The primitive tones of the human voice are much the same in all countries and the prior to the progress of the art and to the period when the music of one country came to exercise some influence over that of another; the songs of a nation could express only the sensations of the heart, and have been little better than the mere tones of the voice.In the case of civilized nations where music is cultivated on scientific principles in the upper strata of society and where it has reached a high degree of development one must look to the less educated classes for obtaining a strictly correct idea of their national music. National music means a faithful expression of national feelings, and these feelings are best manifested under circumstances that are not controlled by extraneoud influences.The shepherd tending his flock, the fishermen mending his nets, the labourer in the paddy field, the cartman driving his cart, has no inducement to sing his favourite tune, unless he is prompted to it by the emotions of his heart. The professional musician, on the other hand, has several inducements to compose or perform music which he does not really feel. The peculiar character of the popular music of a nation depends to a large extent upon the climate of the country; upon the occupation and habits of the people, and as some go to the length of asserting upon the food upon which they chiefly subsist.The study of the music of various nations is advantageous to the musician for a number of resasons. The variety of rhythm and modulation and the deep and beautiful expression that prevail in some of the melodies may present to the student excellent models in composition. The study is important from an ethnological point of view, as it affords him an insight into the inward man and displays the character and temperament of different races, and the relation they bear to one another. It is also important from historical standpoint, for it shows the different stages of progress which music has made in different countries. Printed Pages: 402.
