From poverty to riches and back, featuring a colourful cast of characters known and unknown.

As "Kerrang" magazine celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, Mick Wall collected some of his best interviews and articles, including remarkable encounters with such stars of the era as W. Axl Rose, Jimmy Page, Jon Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Ritchie Blackmore and Lars Ulrich. With new introductions to each chapter, readers will travel to such far-flung rock'n'roll outposts as Los Angeles, New York, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Dublin, Berlin, and Ealing. Irreverent, funny, offensive to anyone who ever disliked very loud rock music, and occasionally quite serious in its analysis of the most famous people who made that music, this is writing that pulsates with rock's own juddering rhythms.
Suitable for SATB and organ, this is an arrangement of the Besancon carol, with words by Eleanor Farjeon.
for unison treble chorus with SA semi-chorus, and piano or orchestra or strings and piano This setting of the folk song To the Ploughboy is delightfully light-hearted and carefree, with its spirited melodies, lively accompaniment, and repeated appeals to the listener to 'sing and be merry'. It was composed to serve as the Prologue to the cantata Folk Songs of the Four Seasons. Full and reduced orchestral accompaniments for the complete cantata are available on hire.
The definitive survey, combining current scholarship with a vibrant narrative. Carefully informed by feedback from dozens of scholars, it remains the book that students and teachers trust to explain what's important, where it fits, and why it matters. Peter Burkholder weaves a compelling story of people, their choices, and the western musical tradition that emerged. From chant to hip-hop, he connects past to present to create a context for tomorrow's musicians.
Films are the lingua franca of western culture; for decades they have provided viewers with a universal way of understanding the human experience. And film music, Kutter Callaway demonstrates, has such a profound effect on the human spirit that it demands theological reflection. By engaging scores from the last decade of popular cinema, Callaway reveals how a musically aware approach to film can yield novel insights into the presence and activity of God in contemporary culture. And, through conversations with these films and their filmmakers, viewers can gain a new understanding of how God may be speaking to modern society through film and its transcendent melodies.
An unusual and dramatic anthem for SATB choir (with divisions) unaccompanied The English verses, starting 'O sing unto the Lord a new song', are framed by the Latin first line 'Cantate Domino canticum novum'. The words and plainsong melody of the Veni Creator Spiritus make an unexpected and effective entry towards the end of the anthem. It is also included in Rutter's Psalmfest.
A unique, moving and dazzlingly researched exploration of the places, people, musicians, writers and filmmakers that inspired David Jones to become David Bowie, what we can learn from his life's work and journey, and why he will always matter. When David Bowie died on 10th January 2016, it seemed the whole world was united in mourning. His greatest hits were sung tearfully in pubs up and down Britain, garlands of flowers were left at the Aladdin Sane mural in his old stomping ground of Brixton and tributes poured in from a galaxy of stars. To many of us, Bowie was so much more than a pop idol. But why? In Why Bowie Matters, Professor Will Brooker answers that question persuasively, as both a fan and an academic. A Bowie obsessive since childhood, he hit the headlines over the course of a year-long immersive research project that took him from London to Berlin and New York, following in Bowie's footsteps, only listening to music and reading books he loved, and even at times adopting his fashion. In this original and illuminating book, Professor Brooker approaches Bowie from various angles, re-tracing his childhood on the streets of Bromley, taking us through his record collection and bookshelves, and deciphering the symbols and codes of his final work, Blackstar to piece together how an ordinary suburban teenager turned himself into a legend, and how perhaps we too could be a little more Bowie. He shows us that while David Robert Jones died on that terrible day in January, David Bowie will live on forever.
From its first appearance, this volume has been considered a standard text in music education courses worldwide, tracing the development of music as an educational force from the dawn of European civilisation in ancient Crete, Sparta, and Athens to today. It is a fascinating exploration of the people involved in teaching music over the centuries and their whole way of life, providing a systematic survey of the educational, musical, religious, social and political factors that have led to what is now known as music education; substantial reference is made to trends and events in other lands as well as England. This second edition includes supplementary chapters investigating the recent history of music education, bringing the historical record up to date, and there is a foreword by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Master of the Queen's Music.
Suitable for unison voices (with optional second part) and piano or orchestra.
Jeff Buckley made only one album, but the one he made has proved to be seminal. Grace emerged at a time when grunge gripped the charts. Buckley's refined melodies and wide vocal range made him stand apart from his contemporaries. His rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is arguably the most memorable version ever recorded. His talent awed industry giants and moved the hearts of fans spanning generations. Grace made clear a remarkably talented force had come upon the world, and it promised a wellspring of astonishing music for years to come. But Buckley's untimely death in 1997 left his fans to wonder about all the sonic magic that could have been and to hold dear the few but brilliant songs he left behind. In the wake of his passing, Buckley has continued to garner new fans and influence countless artists. And while a number of posthumous releases of unpolished, deep cuts have helped satiate listeners over the years, it is his official studio album Grace that reverberates with timelessness: at its release in 1994, the album sounded like nothing that had come before-and no album has repeated its essence since. Photographer Merri Cyr was there along the way. She has documented Buckley's career from his days at the East Village coffee shop Sin-e to his iconic Grace cover shoot to his rigorous tour around the world as he promoted his unprecedented debut. In 25 Years of Grace, Cyr joins forces with Jeff Buckley biographer Jeff Apter (A Pure Drop: The Life of Jeff Buckley) to produce an illustrated tribute to this classic album in celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary. The book features brand new interviews with Buckley insiders-Matt Johnson, Mick Grondahl, Michael Tighe, Gary Lucas, Karl Berger, Andy Wallace, George Stein, Steve Berkowitz, and others-revealing the details about Buckley's signing to a major label, the role of the band in creating arrangements, finding the right creative direction for the multifaceted songsmith, the songwriting process and final song selections, key meetings and collaborations, recording techniques, memorable moments in the studio, and more. The book also includes reflections about Buckley and Grace from an array of music artists-Butch Walker, Pete Yorn, Jimmy Gnecco, Glen Hansard, Holly Miranda, and Lenny Kaye, to name a few. Lavishly illustrated with many never-before-seen photographs, 25 Years of Grace takes a fresh look at the making and legacy of this classic album.
for SS (London Bells), SSA (Good morrow), and piano with optional tubular bells 'London Bells', the third movement from Bob Chilcott's Songs and Cries of London Town, is an energetic and vibrant arrangement of the traditional 'oranges and lemons' rhyme. It is presented here as a stand-alone piece, with a reduced piano accompaniment for one piano and an optional part for tubular bells. Also included is the upper-voice material for the fifth movement, 'Good morrow!', bringing together all of the upper-voice material from Songs and Cries of London Town in one leaflet, for use as the upper-voice choir part in performances of the larger work.
