General Information

Work Title The Norristown Musical Teacher, or Repository of Sacred Harmony, Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, containing a number of new tunes never before published, together with a large selection from the most eminent and admired composers. For the use of Schools and Christian Devotion. On a New System. By a Professor of Music. Peculiarly well adapted for the instruction of the Youth, and those who have not the advantage of a Teacher, by a New and Easy Method of explaining the principles of Music, by means of Tables and Scales, illustrated by Seven peculiar Characters, shewing at once the seven peculiar sounds in an Octave, according to the Italian method of applying seven distinct Syllables to the seven distinct Sounds, leaving to the option of the Scholar to use the Italian do, re, mi, fa, so, la, si, do, or to transpose four of the Italic Syllables, agreeable to the English mode, and in place of do, re, and si, adopt sa, lo, se, or le, pronounced saw, loh, sai, or lai - Syllables more soft and of much easier pronunciation - more agreeable and pleasing to the ear, and better adapted to genteel and graceful singing.
