But of all his compositions, and
tlhere were many, Morley gained his
reputation mainly on a work entitled
"A plaine and Easie Introduction to
Pxracticall Musicke." This was the
first real treatise on music ever pub~-I
lished in England, and consistedE
4riiefly of three parts; the first on
learning how to sing; the second
treating of descant; and the third
tdeaching one how to conmpose songs.
The volume was received with enthus-
qigm in England and Europe, remain-
ing the standlard work of its kind for
oi'er two centuries. Morley seemed to
ha~ve possessed a rare sense of fore-
.sight as well as forethought, in re-
spect to his colleagues for we read thme
following lines in the preface to this
last named work.
