“Needless to say, Mrs. Moore is eminently fitted to treat her subject with authority....The author is a scholarly pianist, and a practitioner as well as a theorist. She is well known as a pioneer in the field of illustrated talks on music, and these essays, which have not previously appeared in print, are composed, to a large extent, of materials used by the author in her public and private lectures on this history and theory of music.” -The Dial, Volumes 34-35, January 1, 1903
A Series of Practical Essays On Music; An Essential Guide for Informed Listening and Practice.
One of the most interesting of the many interesting stories of our civilization is the story of Music. It affords an intimate knowledge of the inner life of man as manifested in different epochs of the world's history. He who has failed to follow it has failed to comprehend the noblest phenomena of human progress.... The spiritual part of music appeals to the spiritual part of man, addressing each heart according to the cravings and capacities of each. The material part of music may be compared to the body in which man's spirit is housed. It is the vehicle which conveys the message of music from soul to soul through the medium of the human ear with its matchless harp of nerve-fibres and its splendid sounding-board, the eardrum.
