Description

Excerpt from Musical Reminiscences: Containing an Account of the Italian Opera in England, From 1773; Continued to the Present Time, and Including the Festival in Westminster Abbey

Worse), many English amateurs retain like myself the love for the good Old style, and for the compositions of those excellent masters which modern caprice has thrown aside as Obsolete, but which must ever be considered by real judges as far superior to the fantastical and tri?ing frippery of the modern school. My remarks will no 'doubt appear very old-fashioned, and it is natural they should be so; but if it were possible to suppose they should be read fifty years hence, I think it very probable they would then be considered to be founded in truth and justice; as the present fanciful style seems to be such as must speedily pass away, and be replaced by one more true to nature, more resem bling at least, if not quite reverting to, that simpler kind, which must invariably please all who are susceptible of feeling the genuine, unsophisticated expression Of really fine music. But I am anticipating what, if it is said at all, will find a more proper place hereafter.
