Manual of Simple, Double, Triple and Quadruple Counterpoint
The subsequent Manual contains instructions for the study of simple, double, triple and quadruple Counterpoint. All the rules, principles and remarks set forth in this volume, are founded on the contrapuntal works of bach, handel, and other classical masters, who have written in our system of the major and minor keys. These studies in Counterpoint are intended to prepare the student for the composition of Canon and Fugue; but those also, who do not intend to become musicians by profession, will be enabled to penetrate more deeply into the works of the classical masters and to cope with the difficulties of their sublime creations. Let no one imagine, however, that the know ledge of the rules alone would suffice; these would be attained quickly and with little trouble. Only serious, conscientious study can further the pupil here, as well as in all other branches of art. Only when the student has mastered all the problems contained in this book in a thorough manner, will he be enabled to proceed to the study of Canon and Fugue.
