In the sacred games different methods are employed
to excite and calm the soul, different melodies are
required for the war-song and the entreaty sung by
the suppliant on bended knee, while the war-note
of the trumpet that leads the army forth to battle
has no resemblance to the call that sounds the
Quintilian. With An English Translation. Harold Edgeworth Butler. Cambridge. Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann, Ltd. 1922.
