"Until relatively recently the extensive Journals (History of my Private Life) maintained throughout almost his entire life by the English gentleman composer John Marsh (1752-1828) were known only to a small circle of musical historians. ...This present volume represents an attempt to bring Marsh's vibrant world to the wider attention of both scholars and a more general readership. ...I [have concentrated] primarily, although far from exclusively, on Marsh's interests in music, an approach one hopes would have met with the approval of the author himself."

-Brian Robins, editor
