" Rule Bntannia," arranged as a R - ondo, by CHARLES


CARL CZERNY is another of the note-splitting generation ; but he can both play beautifully and write beautifully when he pleases. No one is more conversant with the works of the greatest masters, from SEBAS- TIAN BACH to BEETHOVEN. Of this knowledge his best works afford ample proof; though no one has sacrificed more largely to the frivolous taste of the age. In the present instance he has been in one of his bet- ter moods. He has expanded "Rule Britannia" into an excellent piece, written throughout in a bold, brilliant, and characteristic style, yet simple withal, and within the reach of any good performer.
