Excerpt from The Evolution of the Beautiful in Sound: A Treatise, in Two Sections
IN this treatise it has been deemed expedient in alluding to the most ancient series of sounds the Pentatonic), to Show the width and relationship of intervals by giving the lengths of the elastic bodies or pipes which generated the sounds.
The more general plan has been to describe the width or space existing between certain intervals by the ratios of the widths or spaces.
Pythagoras is credited with the introduction of the ratio system into Greece, but it does not appear to have been adopted by the best known Grecian writers on musical science. Their methods, as well as those of the earlier Greek periods, consisted in giving the respective fractional parts of the string which produced the intervals. AS the figures in the ratio system are the same as those which Show the fractional parts of a string, no mistake can arise by adopting either the one or the other system when describing ancient methods.
