A History of Arabian Music to the XIII Century

Henry George Farmer (Author)
Each chapter is divided into three sections.  The first deals with the social and political factors which determined the general musical culture.  The second describes the musical life of the period, together with details of the theory and practice of music.  This has been kept free, as far as was possible, from technicalities, although the author hopes to deal with the theory and science of Arabian music in detail, from an historical standpoint, in a companion volume.  The third section is devoted to biographies of all the celebrated composers, singers, instrumental, theorists, scientists and litterateurs.

The work has been planned to satisfy both the orientalist and the musician, and in spite of the reputed fate of those who attempt to serve two masters, I can only hope that in this case the exception proves the rule.
