Military Music: A History of Wind-Instrumental Bands by J A Kappey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There is certainly no lack of musical histories. From the time when Hucbald endeavored to formulate some primitive rules according to which harmonic progressions should be written, down to our own era, every step in the evolution of the musical art has had its chronicler. We can trace minutely the progress of church-music, the rise of the opera - all is amply recorded.Yet, while historians revelled in descriptions of the grandeur of ecclesiastical compositions, of the music of the princely palaces or the royal playhouses, the music of the people has been passed over with almost contemptuous indifference, and it seems as if they were, so to say, ashamed to mention the poor cousin who found inspiration in the open-air, or "went a soldiering."And yet it is an acknowledged fact that the rhythmic form of most of our orchestral music of the highest class originated in that class of music which struck its roots into the hearts of the uncultured people.
