(p. vi) (p. vii) Acknowledgments

In addition to the named contributors whose words and ideas fill these pages, the often less visible efforts of many others have made this volume possible. We wish to thank Suzanne Ryan at Oxford University Press for her support and encouragement of this handbook, as well as the music editorial staff at Oxford for their careful work. Frank Lehman, Thomas Lin, and Rowland Moseley provided valuable assistance with the music examples. The index was compiled by Frank Lehman. Research support was provided by Harvard University, Williams College and the Oakley Center for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Newhouse Center at Wellesley College, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Guggenheim Foundation.

Wayne Alpern and the Mannes Institute—in particular the 2001 Institute on Historical Music Theory—were responsible for bringing together a number of the scholars whose work is here represented, and for sowing the seeds that eventually developed into the present book.

We wish to thank the staff at the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University, the Sawyer Library at Williams College, and the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin for their assistance. We are grateful also to Google, and in particular to Google Books, which has provided an invaluable service, making accessible (and searchable) many of the often obscure nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century journals and treatises discussed herein.
