An excerpt from the INTRODUCTION.

1. Sound is the effect on the ear of a wavelike (undulatory) motion of an elastic medium, caused by the vibrations of an elastic body.

2. When the vibrations occur at regular intervals, and the waves are therefore of equal length, amusical sound is produced.

3. Musical sounds differ from each other (independently of their duration) inintensity, character and pitch, - determined respectively by theextent, form, and frequency of the vibrations.

4. Intensity, which depends on the extent of the vibrations, regulates the loudness or softness of a sound.

5. Character, which is also called quality or complexion (Frenchtimbre, 'stamp'; German klangfarbe, 'sound-tint'), has already been said to depend on the form of the vibrations. Difference in character enables us to distinguish between voices and instruments, different kinds of voices, and different kinds of instruments.

6. The human voice may be divided into two classes, each of which may again be subdivided, as follows:-

1. Female or high voices (including those of children of both sexes):-

Soprano or Treble, the highest; Mezzo-soprano, the intermediate;Contralto, the lowest.

2. Male or low voices:- Alto or Countertenor, an exceptionallyhigh voice; Tenor, the highest ordinary voice; Barytone, the intermediate; Bass, the lowest. The terms 'contralto,' 'alto,' and 'countertenor,' are used somewhat vaguely, all three being applied to voices of the same range. 'Contralto' is generally used of a female voice, 'countertenor' of a male, 'alto' being sometimes inaccurately applied to either.

The names of the voices are thus derived:-

1. Bass, Low Latin bassus, 'broad.'

2. Barytone, 'heavy,' 'deep,' 'a tone.'

3. Tenor, Latin teneo, 'I hold': so called because it formerly held the principal melody when sung by men. This was calledcantus, or canto, when sung by boys or women.

4. Countertenor, Latin contra tenorem, answering to the tenor.

5. Alto, Latin altus, ' high.'

6. Contralto, Latin contra altum, answering to the alto.

7. Mezzo-soprano, Latin medius, 'middle,' and Low Latin superanus, 'high.'

8. Soprano, Low Latin superanus, 'high.'

9. Treble, Latin triplex, 'triple': so called, either as applied to the third (i. e.the highest) octave of the vocal register, or as being formerly the third (i. e.the highest) part in part-singing.
