Medieval Music and the Art of Memory (Paperback): Anna Maria Busse Berger Medieval Music and the Art of Memory (Paperback)

Winner of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award and Society of Music Theory's Wallace Berry Award This bold challenge to conventional notions about medieval music disputes the assumption of pure literacy and replaces it with a more complex picture of a world in which literacy and orality interacted. Asking such fundamental questions as how singers managed to memorize such an enormous amount of music and how music composed in the mind rather than in writing affected musical style, Anna Maria Busse Berger explores the impact of the art of memory on the composition and transmission of medieval music. Her fresh, innovative study shows that although writing allowed composers to work out pieces in the mind, it did not make memorization redundant but allowed for new ways to commit material to memory. Since some of the polyphonic music from the twelfth century and later was written down, scholars have long assumed that it was all composed and transmitted in written form. Our understanding of medieval music has been profoundly shaped by German philologists from the beginning of the last century who approached medieval music as if it were no different from music of the nineteenth century. But Medieval Music and the Art of Memory deftly demonstrates that the fact that a piece was written down does not necessarily mean that it was conceived and transmitted in writing. Busse Berger's new model, one that emphasizes the interplay of literate and oral composition and transmission, deepens and enriches current understandings of medieval music and opens the field for fresh interpretations.

Social Harp (Paperback): Daniel W Patterson, John F. Garst Social Harp (Paperback)
Daniel W Patterson, John F. Garst; John G. McCurry
R635 Discovery Miles 6 350 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Ballads and other kinds of American folksongs have been widely collected and studied, but most Americans are unaware that in the time between the Revolution and the Civil War the singing of folk spirituals was as common among rural whites as among blacks. This was the music of the Methodist camp meeting and the Baptist revival, and white spirituals in fact are known chiefly because homebred composers sometimes wrote them down, gave them harmonic settings, and published them in songbooks.

One of the rarest of these country songbooks, John McCurry's "The Social Harp" (1855) contains 222 pieces, mostly folktune settings, half of which were composed by McCurry and others in Hart County, Georgia. This facsimile reprinting is provided with appendices useful for the study of its sources and with an introduction containing information that throws light on the men who wrote for nineteenth-century American songsters and the reasons for the eventual neglect of their music.

Cantique de Jean Racine (Sheet music, SSAA vocal score): Gabriel Faure Cantique de Jean Racine (Sheet music, SSAA vocal score)
Gabriel Faure; Arranged by John Rutter
R86 Discovery Miles 860 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Cantique de Jean Racine was written in 1865 during Faure's final year at the Ecole Niedermeyer, winning him the first prize for composition, and this elegant work now holds a cherished place in the choral repertory for both sacred and secular occasions. Presented with an English singing translation in addition to the original French, John Rutter's edition includes an accompaniment for organ or piano, and the work may also be performed with the transcription for harp and strings (available separately), compatible with the instrumentation for the OUP edition of the Faure Requiem in its 1893 version. Complete orchestral and vocal material is available on hire/rental and on sale. This arrangement for upper voices remains as faithful to the original as possible.

Cavalleria Rusticana in Full Score (Paperback): Pietro Mascagni Cavalleria Rusticana in Full Score (Paperback)
Pietro Mascagni
R398 R323 Discovery Miles 3 230 Save R75 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Mascagni's first produced opera (1890), and ultimately his most successful, Cavalleria Rusticana is a tempestuous drama of adultery and revenge set in a remote Italian village. Its earthy passions, bold confrontational scenes and richly melodic score set a fashion for so-called verismo opera that would endure for more than a decade. It is still a great repertoire favorite, almost always double-billed with Ruggiero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci (also available in a Dover edition.) Reprinted from the authoritative edition issued by the German publishers Bote & Bock.

MASKS - Bowie & Artists of Artifice (Paperback): James Curcio MASKS - Bowie & Artists of Artifice (Paperback)
James Curcio
R674 Discovery Miles 6 740 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This interdisciplinary anthology explores the complex relationships in an artist's life between fact and fiction, presentation and existence, and critique and creation, and examines the work that ultimately results from these tensions. Using a combination of critical and personal essays and interviews, MASKS presents Bowie as the key exemplifier of the concept of the "mask," then further applies the same framework to other liminal artists and thinkers who challenged the established boundaries of the art/pop academic worlds, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde, S ren Kierkegaard, Yukio Mishima, and Hunter S. Thompson. Featuring contributions from John Gray and Slavoj Zizek and interviews with Gary Lachman and Davide De Angelis, this book will appeal to scholars and students of cultural criticism, aesthetics, and the philosophy of art; practicing artists; and fans of Bowie and other artists whose work enacts experiments in identity.
