At the time of his death in August 1968, my father was working on this book. The manuscript and a typescript from it made by his devoted friend and student Corinne Andreen Marshall, lay untouched for many years. In 2003, a very small number of copies  of his uncompleted book was privately published by our family in the form shown here, primarily for former colleagues and students, as well as for the libraries of some relevant institutions, some of which he had been associated with.

It is published here in full for the benefit of students, musicians, music lovers, historians and others. A number of typos and similar corrections were made in June 2022.
