This briefer, more accessible edition of our best-selling survey text describes American music as a panorama of distinct yet parallel streams--hip-hop and Latin; folk and country; gospel and classical; jazz, blues, and rock-that reflect the uniquely diverse character of the United States. Comparing and contrasting musical styles across regions and time, Candelaria and Kingman deliver a vision of American music both exuberant and inventive, a music that arises out of the history and musical traditions of the many immigrants to America's shores.
Delivered in St. Martin's hall and the training institutions of the national society This book, "A grammar of musical harmony the substance of lectures," by John Pyke Hullah, is a replication of a book originally published before 1852. It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible.
Congregational music can be an act of praise, a vehicle for theology, an action of embodied community, as well as a means to a divine encounter. This multidisciplinary anthology approaches congregational music as media in the widest sense - as a multivalent communication action with technological, commercial, political, ideological and theological implications, where processes of mediated communication produce shared worlds and beliefs. Bringing together a range of voices, promoting dialogue across a range of disciplines, each author approaches the topic of congregational music from his or her own perspective, facilitating cross-disciplinary connections while also showcasing a diversity of outlooks on the roles that music and media play in Christian experience. The authors break important new ground in understanding the ways that music, media and religious belief and praxis become 'lived theology' in our media age, revealing the rich and diverse ways that people are living, experiencing and negotiating faith and community through music.
A Life Less Lived traces a unique relationship that develops between an old vagabond and a young girl. Once drawn to this old man, the girl soon realizes there is more to him than meets the eyes and then unfolds a saga of loyalties lived to the hilt, of betrayals and love lost... But is everything lost? Is there no hope left? What is it that is making this girl reach out and help this man despite initial opposition from her family? Is there a karmic connection or is there some other connect? Will this girl make him face up his past and rekindle an interest in his present? Will she be able to make him hope for a future? The uniqueness of the book lies in the very interesting plots and sub-plots and the way they are interwoven to culminate into an endearing ending. A love story, a social thriller, a soul-stirring experience that will take you on an emotional journey and leave you with a tear in the eyes and a smile on the lips.
