Crisp hardcover. ; "This volume is concerned with the efforts of a number of [Victorian] musicians, both professional and amateur, to write appropriate settings for poems by Tennyson. Strict technical analysis is for others to pursue. Attention here is directed toward the relevance of the settings to the poems for which they are written.
