Seite 27 - ... however ignorant we may be of the Melody of ancient music, the Rhythm, or time of that melody, being regulated entirely, as has been already observed, by the metrical feet, must always be as well known to us as the prosody and construction of the verse ; so that we have nothing to do but to apply to the long and short syllables any two notes, one of which is double the length of the other, in...

Seite 29 - ... metre of this part, I shall only observe, in general, that it seems to have admitted of such an unbounded variety in the mixture and arrangement of feet, and to have been fettered by so few restraints, that, to a modern ear, it is frequently not to be distinguished from a smooth and elegant prose. We can therefore be certain of nothing, concerning the music applied to the ancient chorus, except the relative lengths, of the notes as they are determined by the prosody : in what manner the ancients...
Seite 20 - Causa obscura multis est, sed aperiatur a nobis, nam quoniam ter feritur hie versus, necesse est ubicumque ab ictu percussionis vacat moram temporis non reformidet. In primo autem pede et tertio incipit et in quinto, feritur in secundo et quarto et sexto.
