The object of this thesis is neither to prove nor to disprove any specific theory or theories, but to conduct an impartial investigation into the fields of musical history and of musical criticism, and to allow such facts as may be ascertained to speak for themselves. Any conclusions reached will be only such as actual facts appear to warrant or to justify.
