The book includes Edel's unfinished autobiography notes which he has written under the title "I was a singing teacher." These notes concern Edel's life and work and some of his educational thought. The book also contains eulogies and descriptions of Edel's life written by his friends and colleagues, and a list of his compositions.
This book is the only elaborate source of information concerning Edel's life and work. It was published posthumously by his niece Gila Uriel.
