The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book.

The object of the first edition is attained. The book has opened the eyes of many to the natiure of the art of song. All those who have anjrthing to say or write must expect to meet misinterpretations: there are just as many ideas and modes of expressing the same thing as there are listeners and readers. I have endeavored, in this second edition, to forestall misinterpretations and to express 0 better what I had to say in the first. It must not be thought that I lay claim to anjrthing new. But I do lay claim to having translated that which has often been said and likewise misunderstood, into the language of the singer who can only guide himself by tone sensations and learn therefrom. Only a few are chosen, not all can become great artists.
