dc.description.abstractUnder the heading of "The Development of Music Criticism in New England", it was first necessary to find the earliest extant records of commentary on musical performances; these consisted of diaries such as those of Judge Samuel Sewall (1705-1721), and Dr. William Bentley (1797-1805). A slight historical sketch has been included, but only that which was pertinent in establishing the background against which musical tastes and the attendant commentary developed. The majority of the leading newspapers were consulted and typical, illustrative excerpts from each paper have been included, showing the basic trends in criticism from the first notices of concerts to the relatively modern era of 1880. Material was also furnished by leading authors who covered various periods in the development of American music; Elson, Howard, Ritter, Johnson, and Sonneck. [TRUNCATED]en_US
