In 1933 John Murray Gibbon published a book called Magic of Melody in which he examined the relationship between music and lyrical forms. This was long before our digital, pop music age and the book has a certain vintage charm.

Mr Gibbon wrote some lyrics for some well known classical pieces. Here are his lyrics for Ludwig van Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata.
