Musical History Repeats
Itself in America Today
Even at this late day in the history
of phonograph and player-piano
music we occasionally hear folks ob
jecting to what is called automatic
and semi-automatic instruments on
one score or another.
"They make music too easy for
young people," it is said. "Keep them
from their grind at piano or violin or
vocal lessons; make them think there
is little use in working hard for some
thing that can be bought in perforated
rolls or small black discs.'1
It is interesting, in this connection,
to look back a few hundred years to
the beginnings of musicalNAmerica.
When in the early sixteen hun
dreds preachers here and there be
gan to advocate the introduction of
new songs into the churches, and
thus thaw out the Puritan ice which
had encrusted all forms of musical ex
pression and reduced the stream to a
tiny trickle of stereotyped psalm
tunes, people began to object quite
Song singing was a "new way."
Otjier music was almost an unknown
"tongue" to most of the people. There
were too many tunes to be learned. No
one could learn them all. Songs
might open the door to instruments,
and instruments were the work of the
devil for the seduction of mankind.
The forefathers of the people had got
into heaven on the wings of the ortho
dox psalm tunes, therefore there was
no need for other music than that.
A long, hard 6ght .was started
against the icebergs of prejudice.
Point by point was won by the lovers
of music (new men from across the
sea). Finally the organ was admitted
to some of the more daring churches,
and the list of tunes increased from
five or six to a dozen or more, here
and there I
There seems to be a pronounced
demand for music among the masse
and anything which aids in bringin
music to the people must of necessit)
find a permanent place in our lives.
The skeptical had best pass judg
ment slowly. F.ven musical history is
repeating itself. '
