A treatise on harmony by F. A. Gore Ouseley( Book )

4 editions published between 1868 and 1883 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Frederick Arthur Gore Ouseley (1825-1889), English church musician, composer, Professor of Music at Oxford and Precentor of Hereford Cathedral, is best remembered for the foundation of St Michael's College, Tenbury, and its extensive music library in 1856. Here he was concerned to maintain the tradition of sung daily offices and to provide a model for others to follow. This book, first published in 1868, is the first of Ouseley's three works on music theory, and offers a structured approach to the subject, beginning with an explanation of musical notation and the harmonic series, then moving through the rules of harmony from tonic and dominant triads, to chord inversions, augmentation, diminution, modulation, the use of suspensions, pivot notes and cadence sequences. Of interest to music students and historians, the book contains exercises for the student and an appendix giving a number of musical examples

Warum Lebensbeschreibungen von Ingenieuren Beachtung beanspruchen diirfen. - Das Interesse solcher Beschreibungen liegt nicht nur in del' Art und Weise, wie ein Mann sein Werk vel'richtet hat, sondern VOl' AHem anch in del' Natur der Arbeit selbst. - Was man unter Ingenieurkunst versteht: Ab leitung des W ortes. - Maassgebende Erklarung seitens des Instituts der Civil Ingenieure in London. - Vielseitigkeit und Wichtigkeit der Aufgaben, welche das Ingenieurfach umfasst. - Nothwendigkeit der Arbeitsvertheilung. - Special branchen, welche von verschiedenen Fachleuten aufgenommen werden. - Del' allgemeine Charakter del' Thatigkeit, welcher Sir William Siemens sein Leben gewidmet hat. Ehe wir eIIle weitere Lebens beschreibung eines hervor ragenden Ingenieurs der grossen Anzahl der bereits vorhandenen anreihen, diirfte es wohl am Platze sein, in Kurzem die Griinde hier darzulegen, worauf die Hoffnung, dass ein solches Buch einige Beachtung beanspruchen diirfe, beruht. Das Interesse an dem Leben eines Ingenieurs liegt erfahrungs gem ass nicht nul' in dem personlichen Charakter und den Werken des betreffenden Mannes, son del'll ganz besonders auch in del' Natur seiner Thatigkeit. Dies ist eine wesentliche Eigenthiim liGhkeit del' Lebensbeschreibung des Ingenieurs, welche bei der Beurtheilung ihres Werthes stets VOl' Augen schweben muss. Wenn ein thatiger Arbeiter auf einem del' gewohnlicheren Berufspfade des Lebens sich beim Volke einen N amen erworben hat, so darf man in den meisten Fallen von vorn herein an nehmen, dass die Gegenstande seiner Arbeit bereits ziemlich allgemein bekannt sind und dass das Interesse lediglich von Sir William Siemens. 1 Kapitel 1
