Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (1852 – 1924) was an Irish composer, conductor, and teacher of music. He was educated at the University of Cambridge and continued his studies in Berlin and Leipzig. He was a very influential composer, responsible for making Cambridge University Musical Society an internationally-acclaimed organisation. Stanford was also a profuse composer, producing a large corpus of work in many genres; however, he is perhaps best remembered for his Anglican choral works for church performance. His music eventually became overshadowed by that of Edward Elgar and a number of his former pupils in the in the 20th century. This volume contains the complete musical notation for his “Symphony in F Minor, Op. 28”, a classical music composition for orchestra in F minor. Presented here in its original form with wide margins for annotations, this composition is perfect for students and musicians with a love of classical music. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of musical notation.

A Short History of Musical Notation
A Short History of Musical Notation
Musical Notation is any system used to visually represent aurally perceived music through the use of written symbols - including ancient or modern musical symbols. Although many ancient cultures used symbols to represent melodies, none of these systems are nearly as comprehensive as written language, limiting knowledge of ancient music to a few fragments. Although it has incredibly old roots, comprehensive music notation only began to be developed in Europe in the Middle Ages but has since been adapted to many kinds of music worldwide.
The earliest form of musical notation can be found in a cuneiform tablet that was created at Nippur, in today s Iraq around 2000 BC. The tablet represents fragmentary instructions for performing music, that the music was composed in harmonies of thirds, and that it was written in a diatonic scale. A tablet from about 1250 BC shows a more developed form of notation, and though the interpretation of the system is still controversial, it is clear that the notation indicates the names of strings on a lyre. Although fragmentary, these tablets represent the earliest notated melodies found anywhere in the world.
The ancient Greeks used musical notation from at least the sixth century BC until approximately the fourth century AD, and several complete compositions and fragments using this notation survive. This system consisted of symbols placed above text syllables, and the Delphic Hyms, dated to the second century BC use this notation - but are not completely preserved. Such methods appear to have fallen out of use around the time of the Decline of the Roman Empire. The Byzantine Empire was the other major civilisation to use musical notation, and theirs was remarkably similar to subsequent Western notation, in that it was ordered left to right, and separated into measures.
