Ashgate, 1999 - Music - 324 pages
Although often labelled over-sentimental, 19th century British music offers much. Rather than dealing directly with the artistic value of the music, these essays discuss factual and technical information, musical life in 19th century Britain and music's place in this period of sweeping change.
