Apoftolical age. Surely a man, who was hunting after all the tefti. monies he could procure, spurious as well as authentic, should not have overlooked what was so much to his purpose !"

The judicious Reader perceives that we meant nothing but irony : and the learned Reader knows, that the tract we refer to, called the AEts of Paul and Thecla, was a forgery of a later age, like the Letters of Clement: and if Mr. Cookson wants further information on this point, we refer him to Grabe's Spicilegium.

As to the virtuous widow, Anna, we introduced her name in another place, and with all that reverence that was due to her character. Cookson.

what the 'moderns call Chromatic. Nay, from a passage given by the Author, Marchetto seems to have paved the way towards the Settima diminuita, or the diminished 7th; concerning which, the Author informs us, that it is a matter of musical controverly, in Italy, whether the honour of having first dared to use it is due to Jomelli or Galuppi; - as both these eminent masters hazarded this piquant passage fo near the fame time in different places, the one in a long composed at Venice, and the other in a long composed at Turin, that it is easier to imagine the in, vention due to both, than that either should arrogate to himself the merit of another.'

The invention of the Time-table constitutes one of the principal subjects of the 3d cbapter. This forms an important æra in the history of music, which, among the ancients, was a Alave to language;' one note only, or not more than ewo, have ing been allowed to one syllable; but which has now become s a free agent,' Having got rid of its ancient restraint, and abandoned to its own powers, muqc, to use the Author's comprehensive and expresive language, “is now become a rich, expressive, and picturesque language in itself; having its forms, proportions, contrasts, punctuations, members, phrases and periods."

In the 4th chapter, the Author treats very copiously of the first application of melody and harmony to the modern languages of Europe; and of the general Itate of music, till the invention of printing, about the year 1450. The inquiries into which the Author is naturally led, relative to the union of poetry with music, cannot fail of being highly pleasing to those even who do not cultivate the last of these arts; as they will here meet with many excellent critical and historical observations re. dative to the poetry and literature of this æra, as they stand connected with this principal subject.

A pleasing account is first given of the Troubadours, or Provençal poets ; together with some select examples of their poetry, and ftill more curious specimens of the original melodies, to which their poetical effusions were sung. The first and most ancient example which the Author has been able to find, of this kind, is the production of Anfelm Faidit, a Troubadour; who wrote a poem on the death of our Richard I. whom he had accompanied to the holy war. This was found by the Author in the Vatican, among the manuscripts bequeathed to that library by the Queen of Sweden, No. 1659; together with the original music, set by the bard himself, who was as much admired by his cotemporaries for setting his poems to music, as for writing them. In this, as well as many other instances, the Author not only presents us with the ancient melodies (together with a base of his own) in modern notes; but he likewise gives us fac-similes
