A collection of selected writings on Hindu music by oriental scholars of Europe with a commentary by the author.

This work, divided in two parts, contains extracts from all the eminent works on Hindu music in English language. The similarity of the music of Egypt and Greece to that of India has been traced and pointed out: harmony and melody have been compared; and ;time noticed. The varieties of song have been enumerated, and the character of each detailed. A short alphabetical glossary of the most useful music terms concludes this work.

First published in 1882, this work is a reprint of a well acclaimed book in its times.
