Harmony its Theory and Practice

Harmony It’s Theory and Practice
by Ebenezer Prout


harmonyitstheorypracticePreface excerpt:
Most intelligent students of harmony have at times been perplexed by their inability to reconcile passages they have found in the works of the great masters with the rules given in the textbooks. If they ask the help of their teacher in their difficulty, they are probably told, “Bach is wrong,” or “Beethoven is wrong,” or, at best, “This is a licence.” No doubt examples of very free part-writing may be found in the works of Bach and Beethoven, or even of Haydn and Mozart ; several such are noted and explained in the present work.
