Should David Trippett have only translated The Origins of Music, it would have yet been an invaluable contribution to the field. However, as editor and translator, he goes above and beyond by providing two essays prior to the book, and a new translation of Stumpf's autobiography ... These materials provide a valuable frame for The Origins of Music by supplying a helpful context within which to consider Stumpf's contributions. ... the translationofStumpf's The Origins of Music is a timely and valuable addition to our scholarly literature. ...
