Abstract

Anthony Pople was Editor of Music Analysis between 1995 and 1999. His tragically premature death on 10 October 2003 robbed our discipline, in general, of a charismatic figure with a wide range of interests in music theory and analysis, and, in particular, of the major project on which he had been working intensively in his final years.1 Audiences in the UK had had the opportunity, on three occasions, to learn something of the intentions and scope of the Tonalities project from Pople himself as well as from key respondents, and even to gain limited `hands-on' experience of the software in action.2 Inevitably, perhaps ± as Michael Russ points out in his remarks below ± the focus of these presentations had been on the analytical capabilities of the program itself rather than on the wider historical, theoretical and interpretative issues that had prompted the project in the first place. It was in order to present the possibilities of the Tonalities project as a whole to an international analytical community that Pople had been working on a major article for this journal at the time of his death.
