Since its first appearance in 1938 Harmonic Relations has been in continuous use in the classrooms of the New England Conservatory of Music. Every chapter, illustration, and exercise has been subjected to the most careful scrutiny, in an effort to make each statement and explanation as simple and clear as possible, and the exercise material varied, musical, and attractive. The revised edition has benefited greatly from the combined experience of students and teaching staff. Material that proved of doubtful value has been eliminated, the order of presentation has been considerably revised, and much new material has been added, particularly in the latter part of the book. Its principal object is to provide the student with a comprehensive knowledge of the principles of harmonic writing as they may be observed in the works of the great composers of the past, and a theoretical basis for the investigation of the divergent harmonic practices of contemporary writers.
