[+] Vaughan Williams, Ralph. "What is Music?" In National Music and Other Essays, ed. Michael Kennedy, 206-14. 2nd ed. London and New York: Oxford University Press, 1987.

Music has undergone a complex evolution beginning with the inflection patterns of speech. Teschner's chorale Valet will ich is apparently based on the English dance tune Sellinger's Round, and Edmund Gurney rhythmically distorts Ein feste Burg into a jig tune in his The Power of Sound.

Works: Edmund Gurney: The Power of Sound (209); Teschner: Valet will ich (209).
