Hawkins' work suffered badly in the resulting competition between the two, partly because of his difficult personality, partly because of the scholarly style of the writing contrasting with Burney's more engaging approach. However, it is Hawkins' accuracy and attention to detail, his appreciation of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century music and his account of London music society in the early eighteenth century, supported by his painstaking research, which makes the history of indispensable value to music scholars. Whilst there are neither contents list nor chapter headings, there is an index, and each volume includes generous illustrations and musical examples. Volume 1 includes a Preliminary discourse, the development of music notation, plainchant and music treatises of Arezzo and Boethius+-+884475356632410253ocn759160200file20090.50Hawkins, JohnThe life of Samuel Johnson, LL.

Another portrait on the far right depicts John Courtenay with a pen in his hand looking toward a bust of Prisian. On her desk is a letter "D Johnson ...

In Burney's poem, Hawkins, in the figure of Midas, is put on trial for not recognizing then-respected composers in his work; found guilty, his works are consigned to "a dirty niche deep in the darkest part of loath'd Fleet Ditch."

Citations from Hawkins' work are followed by often disparaging commentary upon them; Burney remarks that "Ch. V. Bk. IV is chiefly made up of dry dictionary articles of Biography, loosely littering his Book as if he had been in want of a needle & thread to tack them together," and "Vol. III p. 262 He calls Jno. Okenheim the disciple of Jusquin whereas it is well known he was the master." He includes a list of "Omissions of Composers & Performers who died long before Sr. Jno. published his History & therefore had fair Claims to a Niche in it." The work is interspersed with commentaries on various pieces and composers, accompanied by fragments of musical notation, and followed by a piece on "Dancing," a history of opera and theater titled "Progress of the Musical Drama or opera, at Venice," and another titled "Progress of the Musical Drama at Rome."+-+4044785735+-+4044785735Fri Mar 21 15:28:35 EDT 2014batch35031
