Among the Great Masters of Music: Scenes in the Lives of Famous Musicians
by Walter Rowlands

The compiler's thanks are due to Messrs. Houghton, Mifflin & Co., and to Mrs. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward, for permission to use a selection from "The Silent Partner."

Music is the link between spiritual and sensual life.—Beethoven.

And while we hear
The tides of Music's golden sea
Setting toward eternity,
Uplifted high in heart and hope are we.

Music in the best sense has little need of novelty, on the contrary, the older it is, the more one is accustomed to it, the greater is the effect it produces.—Goethe.

Music is a kind of inarticulate, unfathomable speech, which leads us to the edge of the infinite, and lets us for moments gaze into that.—Carlyle.
