constant attendance at performances given
the Saxon court at Hubertsburg. His light,
asing, and melodious compositions, together
;h the charm of his manners, rapidly brought
1 populai-ity at Leipzig. In 1743 he
3 appointed conductor of the first Gewasd-
as CoxcEETS;^ and on March 9, 1744,

was commissioned to write a Festival
itata in celebration of the anniversary of
ir foundation. In that same year he was
)ointed Cantor at Freiburg, where he wrote,
1 748, on the occasion of the hundredth anni-
sary of the Peace of Westphalia, the Sing-
3I, out of which arose the famous dispute
ween Biedeimann, Mattheson, and Bach. ^
1755 he succeeded Gottlob Hasser as Cantor
he Thomasschule and also as director of the
» principal churches, which posts he held
ill 1789, when old age and failing health
ipelled him to resign them. In the spring
1789 Mozart visited Leipzig, and on April

he played on the organ at St. Thomas's
arch, and made his well-known remark to
les about Bach's music. [See Mozaet, vol. ii.
92 5.] It was probably on the same occasion
t J. C. Barthel played before Mozart at
les's house. [See Bakthel, J. C] And in

foUowing year Doles published his cantata
jrellert's words, ' Ich komme vor dein Ange-
it ' (Leipzig, 1 790), dedicated to his friends
zart and Naumann. Special interest attaches
.his work, because its preface records Doles's
oions as to the way in which sacred music
uld be treated, and those opiaions have little
common with the traditions of J. S, Bach,
is plain, indeed, that although Doles was
ud of having been Bach's pupil, and there-
j unwilling to depreciate him openly, he
k no pains whatever, during his directorship
Leipzig, to encourage and extend the taste

his great master's works. Bach's church-
ric was almost entirely neglected both by
I and his successor, J. A. Holler. Doles died
Leipzig on Feb. 8, 1797.
[is compositions consist principally of cantatas,
|;ets, psalms, sacred odes and songs, and cho-
ps, many of which have been printed, including
;ie sonatas for the clavicembalo. His ' Elemen-
f Instruction in Singing ' had, in its day, con-

irable reputation as a useful practical method,
long his many unprinted works may be men-
led two oratorios (the Passion-music accord-
to St. Mark and St. Luke), two masses, a

DORSET GARDEN THEATRE. This
house was erected upon the garden of a mansion
belonging to the Earl of Dorset, situate upon the
bank of the Thames at the bottom of Salisbury
Court, Fleet Street. Sir William (then Mr.)
Davenant had obtained a patent for its erection
in 1639 and another in 1662, but from various
causes the building was not erected in his life-
time. His widow, however, built the theatre,
from the designs of Sir Christopher Wren ; and
the Duke's company, removing from Lincoln's
Inn Fields, opened it Nov. 19, 167 1. It became
celebrated for the production of pieces of which
music and spectacle were the most prominent
features, amongst which the most conspicuous
were Davenant's adaptation of Shakspere's
'Macbeth,' with Lock's music, 1672; Shad-
well's adaptation of Shakspere's ' Tempest,' with
music by Lock, Humfrey, and others, 1673;

Draglii, Feb. 1673-4; Shadwell's 'Libertine,'
with Purcell's music, 1676; Dr. Davenant's
'Circe,' with Banister's music, 1677; Shad-
well's alteration of Shakspere's ' Timon of
Athens,' with Purcell's music, 1678; and Lee's
' CEdipus ' and ' Theodosius,' both with Purcell's
music, in 1679 and 1680 respectively. In 16S2
the King's and Duke's companies were united,
and generally performed at Drury Lane ; but
operas and other pieces requiring a large space
for stage effects were stiU occasionally brought
out at Dorset Garden, amongst them Dryden's
'Albion and Albanius,' with Grabu's music,
1685 ; and Powell and Verbruggen's 'Brutus and
Alba,' with Daniel Purcell's music, in 1697.
In 1699 the house was let to William J03', a
strong Kentish man styled ' The English
Samson,' and for exhibitions of conjuring,
fencing, and even prize-fighting. It was again
opened for the performance of plays in 1703,
and finally closed in Oct. 1706. After the
demolition of the theatre the site was succes-
sively occupied as a timber yard, by the New
River Company's offices, and the City Gas
Works. An engraving showing the river front
of the theatre was prefixed to Elkanah Settle's
' Empress of Morocco," 1673, another, by Sutton
Nicholls, was published in 1710, and a third in
theGentleman'sMagazine, July, 1814. [W.H.H.]

DOT. It should be added that Handel and
Bach, and other composers of the early part
of the 1 8th century, were accustomed to use
a convention which often misleads modern
students. In 6-8 or 12-8 time, where groups
of dotted quavers followed by semiquavers occur
in combination with triplets, they are to be
regarded as equivalent to crotchets and quavers.
Thus the passage

note of the triplet, as it would be if the phi-ase
occurred in more modern music. E^I-]

under Ambroise Thomas, the Pi-ix de Roi
On his return from Italy in 1866 he devo
himself to teaching, and was appointed ma\
de chapeUe of Ste. Clotilde, where, on G<
Friday, 1867, he produced an important
carefuUy written work, ' Les Sept Paroles
Christ,' afterwards performed at the Conc(
Populaires in 1870. It has since been gi'
in other churches on Good Friday, and pj
of it have been performed at the Conci
du Conservatoire. Being unable to force
entrance into the gTeat musical theatres,
contented himself with producing, at
Athen^e, a pleasing little work, ' La Guzla
TEmir ' (April 30, 1873). In 1 8 78 he carried
together with B. Godard, the prize at
Concours Musical instituted by the city of Pa
and his 'Paradis perdu' was perfonned, firs'
the public expense (Nov. 27, 1878), and agair
the two following Sundays at the Concerts

stage are, ' Le Pain bis ' (Op^ra-Comit

81). The last of these, a work full of life and
3ent, ranks, together with his two small operas,
long his best compositions. He possesses a full
owledge of all the resources of his art, but
tie originality or independence of style. For
ne time he was maitre de chapelle at the
adeleine, and is now organist there, having
placed Saint-Saens in 1877. He succeeded
wart as professor of harmony at the Conserva-

Bedfordshire. Of his life absolutely nothing

Jebrity as a musician, mainly owing to a pas-

ohannes Tinctoris (1445-15 11). The author,

after mentioning how the institution of Royal
choii-s or chapels encouraged the study of music,
proceeds : ' Quo fit ut hac tempestate, facultas
nostrse musices tam mirabile susceperit incre-
mentum quod ars nova esse videatur, cujus, ut
ita dicam, novae artis fons et origo, apud Anglicos
quorum caput Dunstaple exstitit, fuisse perhibe-
tur, et huic contemporanei fuerunt in Gallia
Dufay et Binchois quibus immediate succes-
serunt moderni Okeghem, Busnois, Regis et
Caron, omnium quos audiverim in compositione
prffistantissimi. Hsec eis Anglici nunc (licet
vulgariter jubilare, Gallici vero cantare dicun-
tur) veniunt conferendi. Illi etenim in dies
novos cantus novissime inveniunt, ac isti (quod
miserrimi signum est ingenii) una semper et
eadem compositione utuntur.' (Coussemaker,
' Scriptoies,' vol. iv. p. 154.) Ambros (' Ge-
schichte der Musik,' ii. pp. 470-1) has shown
conclusively how this passage has been gradually
misconstrued by subsequent writers, beginning
with Sebald Heyden in his ' De Arte Canendi'
(1540), until it was boldly affirmed that Dunsta-
ble was the inventor of Counterpoint ! Ambros
also traces a still more absurd mistake, by which
Dunstable was changed into S. Dunstan ; this
was the invention of Franz Lustig, who was fol-
lowed by Printz, Marpurg, and otl'.er writers.
It might have been considered that the claim of
any individual to be the ' inventor ' of Counter-
point would need no refutation. Counterpoint,
like most other branches of musical science, can
have been the invention of no single man, but
the gradual result of the experiments of many.
Tinctoris himself does not claim for Dunstable
the position which later writers wrongly gave
hmi. It will be noticed that the ' fons et origo '
of the art is said to have been in England, where
Dunstable was the chief musician ; and though
Tinctoris is speaking merely from hearsay, yet
there is nothing in his statement so incredible as
some foreign writers seem to think. So long as
the evidence of the Rota ' Sumer is y-cunien in '
is unimpeached, it must be acknowledged that
there was in England, in the early T3th century,
a school of musicians which was in advance of
anything possessed by the Netherlands at the
same period. Fortunately the evidence for the
date of the ' Rota ' is so strong that it cannot be
damaged by statements of historians who either
ascribe it to the 15 th century or ignore it alto-
gether. Within the last few years an important
light has been thrown upon the relation of
Dunstable to the Netherlands musicians Dufay
and Binchois, by the discovery (Monatshefte fiir
Musikgeschichte, 1SS4, p. 26) that Dufay died
in 1474, and not, as had been hitherto supposed,
some twenty years before Dunstable. Binchois
did not die until 1460, so it is clear that, though
the three musicians were for a time contem-
poraries, yet Tinctoris was right in classing the
Englishman as the head of a school which actually
preceded the Netherlanders and Burguiidians.

Dunstable's fame was certainly great, though
short-lived. He is mentioned in a manu-
script preserved in the Escorial (c. iii. 23),



620



DUNSTABLE.



written at Seville in 1480 (J. F. Eiano, 'Notes
on Early Spanish Music,' p. 65), in two other
passages in the Treatises of Tinctoris, in the
' Dialogus in Arte Musica ' of John Hothby
(Coussemakei', * Scriptores,' iii. xxxi.), in ' Le
Champion des Dames' of Martin Le Franc
(d. 1460), and more than once by Franchinus
Gaforius, who in Book ii. cap. 7 of his 'Practica
Musicae ' (Milan, 1496) gives the tenor of a
setting of ' Veni Sancte Spiritus ' by the English
composer.^ Yet he was — in his own country at
least — so soon forgotten, that his name does not
occur in Bale's ' Scriptores Britannise' (1550), and
Morley (' Introduction,' ed. 1597, p. 178) quotes
a passnge from his motet 'Nesciens virgo mater
virum,' in which he has divided the middle of the
word ' Angelorum ' by a pause two Long rests
in lengtli, as an exmaple of* one of the greatest
absurdities which I have seene committed in the
dittying of musick.' The passage is doubtless
absurd to modern ideas : but Dunstable's fault
was not considered such at the time he wrote.
Similar passages occur so late as Josquin's days.
The main difBculty of determining what
ground there was for Dunstable's fame lies in
the fact that so little of his work is now ex-
tant. Gaforius evidently was acquainted with a
treatise by him, and the same work is quoted by
Eavenscroft, from a marginal note in whose
'Briefe Discourse' (1614) we learn that Dun-
stable's treatise was on ' Mensurabilis Musice.'
Until comparatively recent days it was thought
that the fragments printed by Gaforius and Mor-
ley were all that remained of his works. But a
little more than this has been preserved. A
three-part song, ' O Rosa bella,' was discovered
in a MS. at the Vatican by MM. Danjou and
Morelot ('Eevue de la Musique Eeligieuse,'
1S47, p. 244, and another copy was subse-
quently found in a MS. collection of motets,
etc., at Dijon. This composition has been
scored by M. Morelot, and printed in his mono-
graph ' be la Musique au XV« Sifecle.' It
may also be found in the appendix to the 2nd
volume of Ambros' ' Geschichte der Musik.'
Its effect in performance, considering the period
when it was written, is really extraordinary, and
quite equal to anything of Dufay's. Besides
these compositions the British Museum possesses
two specimens of Dunstable's work. The first
is an enigma which has not yet been deciphered.
It occurs in a MS. collection of Treatises on
Music (Add. MS. 10,336), transcribed by John
Tuck at the beginning of the i6th century.
Owing to its being written at the end of fol. 18,
and signed ' Qd. Dunstable,' an idea has arisen
that it forms part of the precetling treatise,
which has therefore been sometimes alleged to
be the lost treatise ; but this is not the case, for
the treatise, as Coussemaker has shown, is that
which is nearly always ascribed to John de
Muris, and Dunstable's enigma is evidently
written in to fill up the page. In a similar and
almost identical MS. at Lambeth, transcribed
by William Chelle of Hereford, the treatise of

1 See also Book III, cap. 4 of the same work.



DUNSTABLE.

de j\Iuris and enigma of Dunstable occur in
same juxtaposition. The other composition
Dunstable's in the Bi-itish Museum is to
found in a magnificent volume which forme
belonged to Henry VIII. (Add. MS. 31,92
It is a three-part composition of some leng
without words : the tenor consists of a sh
phrase which is repeated in accordance w
the Latin couplet written over the part,
addition to these may be mentioned a MS. c
lection of 15th-century Astronomical Treati
in the Bodleian at Oxford, which contains
p. 74) ' Longitudo et latitude locorum praecipe
Anglia, secundum aliam antiquam scriptur
de manu Dustapli.' At the bottom of the m
gin of the page the date occurs : ' Anno Gra
143S die mensis Aprilis.'

The Liceo Filarmonico de Bologna also p
sesses an early 15th-century MS., which conta
four of Dunstable's compositions, viz. a ' ]
trem,' a 'Eegina cceli laetare,' and two mot
— ' Sub tua protectione,' and ' Quam pulchra
