Here is some more text and problems from Herbert Grasemann's booklet, One Reverend's Idea.
"The whole thing was like a gold rush. Loveday discovered in 1845, with the critical move, a rich mine, and other gold miners crowded, to also capture a chunk. Until the mid-sixties (1860s), they had succeeded. Then something strange happened. Maybe it was believed that the variations of Loveday's discovery were already exhausted, in any case, the composers turned - aside from the usual imitators and laggards - suddenly to other areas: in the English-speaking countries, the two mover."
