Dear Adrianna,

The lyric/dramatic/epic trichotomy informs many approaches to genre in poetry, so it wouldn't surprise me if analogies have occasionally been used in music scholarship.  One source I know of that explicitly discusses "lyrical time" is Raymond Monelle (2000), The Sense of Music, pp. 90ff.  That seems kind of recent, but the sources he makes contact with are from the phenomenological literature rather than music scholarship, so who knows, maybe it is his coinage within our field.  Obviously, people like Jonathan Kramer and even A.B. Marx deal with similar concepts, but with different types of terminology.

Dear collective wisdom,

Would anybody be so kind as to point me in the direction of the origins of the term lyrical and narrative time in music?

Thanks very much in advance,

Adriana Ponce
