cover The Ernest Bloch Companion by David Z. Kushner
Book Description
The evolution of Ernest Bloch's music is traced throughout his travels in Europe and America. A complete picture of Bloch emerges from this integrated study of his life and his music. The opening biographical chapter provides a brief, personal history from which Bloch's career and many interests follow, including his pursuits in photography. The biographical information provides the framework for addressing the "Jewish Question," a common focus of Bloch's work. Bloch emerges, from this multifaceted study, as a composer whose music must be examined within both its Jewish heritage and in a larger, universal context.

cover Exploring Music as Worship and Theology: An Interdisciplinary Method for Studying Liturgical Practice by Mary E. McGann
Book Description
Exploring Music as Worship and Theology addresses a central challenge to liturgical scholars and pastoral leaders-how to understand the diverse, culturally shaped worship patterns that exist in our multi-cultural church. It situates music as a central lens through which to explore a community's liturgical practice, and offers a practical method for studying and interpreting the lived experience of a musical-liturgical assembly. Exploring Music as Worship and Theology invites greater attention to the diverse cultural music emerging in our various Christian assemblies, and underscores the need for greater dialogue between our theories of liturgy, music, and the actual practice of local communities. Chapters are "Interdisciplinary Orientations to Musical-Liturgical Practice," "The Research Process," and "Creative Dialogue with Liturgical Studies."

cover Lalo: My Life and Music by Lalo Guerrero, Sherilyn Meece Mentes
Book Description
Often called "the father of Chicano music," Lalo Guerrero is an American original whose music has jubilantly reflected his people's culture for more than sixty years. Lalo's autobiography recalls the nightclubs where he was a headliner and the one-night stands he performed all over the Southwest in an often funny, sometimes sentimental story that traces his musical genius.

cover Marian Anderson: A Singer's Journey (Music in American Life) by Allan Keiler
Book Description
Marian Anderson was a woman with two disparate voices. The firstÐ-a powerful, majestic contralto spanning four octaves--catapulted her from Philadelphia poverty to international fame. A second, softer voice emanated from her mere presence: an unwavering refrain of opportunity and accomplishment in the face of racial prejudice. From meetings with Anderson before her death in 1993, as well as interviews, reviews, and early coverage in the black press, and personal diaries and letters, Allan Keiler has assembled a massive and magnificent study of Anderson's life. Now in paperback for the first time, this edition features separate appendices for Anderson's repertory and discography, and thirty-two photographs of the singer's incredible life and career.

cover Portrait of Percy Grainger (Eastman Studies in Music) by Malcolm Gillies (Editor), David Pear (Editor)
Book Description
Percy Grainger (1882-1961) was a pianist, composer, ethnographer, essayist, and much more. The Australian-American musician aspired to the condition of a polymath, with strong interests in language, culture, ecology and technology. In an age of increasing specialisation Grainger held to a breathless all-roundedness. This book looks at the scrabbling diversity of Grainger's life through the eyes of others. Family and friends, pupils, musical associates andchance acquaintances recall their experiences of Percy Grainger from his boyhood in colonial Australia, through his conservatorium years in Germany, on to his early professional years in London, and further to the zenith of his career and then years of decline in the United States. In the final chapter, Grainger himself explains the driving passions of his life. Fifty illustrations, including architectural drawings, scores and machine plans, vividly depictthe enthusiasms described in over ninety recollections of Grainger. A composer of over four hundred compositions and virtuoso performer in some three thousand concerts, Grainger left a large legacy. He was an important influenceupon the folk-song movement in Britain, and, through such masterworks as Lincolnshire Posy, he was enduringly popular with the band movement in America. On a personal level, his development of the language of 'blue-eyed English' was stillborn, and his muscular style of pianism found few adherents among the next generation of performers. His frankly expressed views on sexual licence were also many decades ahead of their time. Today, however, Graingerthe musician is again in the ascendant. His more innovative works are gaining a belated hearing, while his standards, such as Country Gardens, remain firm favorites.
