SHAKESPEARE IN MUSIC.

CHAPTER I.

The Musical Side of the Poet - His Versatility — The Orchestra in the Time of Shakespeare-Drayton's Description of English Instruments - Bacon's Summary of Music in Elizabethan Days - A Comparison of Bacon and Shakespeare in Their Musical Allusions - A Contribution to the Baconian Controversy - Concerted Music at the End of the Sixteenth Century.

THREE centuries ago there existed upon the earth a man with a mind so wonderful and versatile that hundreds of commentators and thousands of commentaries have not exhausted the many topics which he has presented to posterity.' It is our purpose, in this volume, to examine but one phase of that mind, — its musical side only, - yet even when confined to this single field the investigator is confronted with an amount of material and a wealth of suggestions that makes the task far larger than would at first sight be imagined.

In the Boston Public Library there are more than 3,250 different works connected with this topic.
