Excerpt from The Voice and Spiritual Education While it is the purpose of this little book to emphasize the importance of vocal culture in its relations to literary and general culture, it is t its purpose, except incidentally, to impart elocutionary instruction. Attention is called to a few features of the subject, which, if realized in any voice, would contribute much to the technical part, at least, of good reading. Special stress is laid upon the importance of spiritual education as the end toward which all education should be directed, and as an indispensable condition of interpretative reading.
