tends to be accompanied by a very marked interest in musical and other 

kinds of art. Lancaster, in a study of this question among a large number 

of young people (without reference to difference in sex, though they were 

largely female), found that from 50 to 75 per cent of young people feel an 

impulse to art about the period of puberty, lasting a few months, or at 

most a year or two. It appears that 464 young people showed an increased 

and passionate love for music, against only 102 who experienced no change 

in this respect. The curve culminates at the age of 15 and falls rapidly 

after 16. Many of these cases were really quite unmusical.[128]

interval, or such a succession of intervals, affects us. A theoretical 

treatise on harmony ought to tell us the explanation of these impressions. 

In a word, musical harmony is a psychological science." He adds that this 

science is very far from being constituted yet; we have hardly even 

obtained a glimpse of it.

rhythm on the involuntary muscular system is indicated by the occasional 

effect of music in producing a tendency to contraction of the bladder.
