About the Book
This rare and classic book represents a quarter of a century of constant groping and reaching out for the true principles which govern the art of singing in its highest aspect, which is the most eloquent and direct expression not only of the individualized soul, but also of the great universal soul itself. We believe this work is culturally important, and hope you enjoy this valuable book.
