This is a 1903 limited (56/250) self-published edition of The Music of the Ephrata Cloister Also Conrad Beissel's Treatise on Music (as set forth in a Preface to the "Turtel Taube" of 1747). Amplified with Facsimile Reproduction of Parts of the Text and some Original Ephrata Music.

Sasche shows how the musical influence of the Cloister gradually reached the Shenandoah Valley, the Alleghenies and even New England. Particular attention is paid to the Turtel Taube which contains 277 hymns and was the first hymn book produced at the Cloister and may be the earliest Western hymnal containing only original compositions. Beissel's theory of harmony is also discussed at some length.
