The Cambridge companion to Arvo Pärt by Andrew Shenton( Book )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arvo Pärt is one of the most influential and widely performed contemporary composers. Around 1976 he developed an innovative new compositional technique called 'tintinnabuli' (Latin for 'sounding bells'), which has had an extraordinary degree of success. His music is frequently performed around the world and has been used in award-winning films, and pieces such as Für Alina and Spiegel im Spiegel have become standard repertoire. This collection of essays, written by a distinguished international group of scholars and performers, is the essential guide to Arvo Pärt, and his music. The book begins with a general introduction to Pärt's life and works, covering important biographical details and outlining his most significant compositions. Two chapters analyze the tintinnabuli style and are complemented by essays which discuss Pärt's creative process. The book also examines the spiritual aspect of Pärt's music, and contextualizes him in the cultural milieu of the twenty-first century and in the marketplace"--Résumé de l'éditeur

Statistically the most performed and listened to contemporary composer in the world, Arvo Part is a musical and cultural phenomenon. This book is an essential resource for anyone interested in his extraordinarily innovative and uniquely appealing music. Andrew Shenton surveys the full scope of Part's oeuvre, providing context and chronological continuity while concentrating in particular on his text-based music, analysing and describing individual pieces and techniques such as tintinnabulation. The book also explores the spiritual and theological contexts of Part's creativity, and the challenges of performing his work. This volume is the definitive guide for readers looking to engage with the form, content, and context of Part's compositions, as Shenton situates Part in the narrative of metamodernism and suggests new ways of understanding this unique and beautiful music
Exploring Christian song( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay collection celebrates the richness of Christian musical tradition across its two thousand year history and across the globe. Opening with a consideration of the fourth-century lamp-lighting hymn Phos hilaron and closing with reflections on contemporary efforts of Ghanaian composers to create Christian worship music in African idioms, the ten contributors engage with a broad ecumenical array of sacred music. Topics encompass Roman Catholic sacred music in medieval and Renaissance Europe, German Lutheran song in the eighteenth century, English hymnody in colonial America, Methodist hymnody adopted by Southern Baptists in the nineteenth century, and Genevan psalmody adapted to respond to the post-war tribulations of the Hungarian Reformed Church. The scope of the volume is further diversified by the inclusion of contemporary Christian topics that address the evangelical methods of a unique Orthodox Christian composer's language, the shared aims and methods of African-American preaching and gospel music, and the affective didactic power of American evangelical "praise and worship" music. New material on several key composers, including Jacob Obrecht, J.S. Bach, George Philipp Telemann, C.P.E. Bach, Zoltan Kodály, and Arvo Pärt, appears within the book. Taken together, these essays embrace a stimulating variety of interdisciplinary analytical and methodological approaches, drawing on cultural, literary critical, theological, ritual, ethnographical, and media studies. The collection contributes to discussions of spirituality in music and, in particular, to the unifying aspects of Christian sacred music across time, space, and faith traditions. --
Evaluating online information and sources by Andrew Shenton( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The widespread use of the World Wide Web has revolutionised the way in which people find information. Locating information is now easier than ever before but the fact that so much material, of such varying calibre, is now available has brought its own problems. There are no quality thresholds that must be met by information on the Web, and young people need to develop an array of skills if they are to test the soundness of what they find with a view to accepting or rejecting it. Although the minibook concentrates largely on the use of the Internet for academic purposes in schools, many of the principles are applicable in a wide range of contexts, including situations where young people seek information for personal interest and exploit paper sources. The minibook consists of two sections. The first takes a theoretical perspective; it explores the nature of information evaluation and considers why so often young people do not appraise the material they encounter. The second part is more practical; it presents a teaching programme that can be followed in schools, provides a case study demonstrating a textbook instance of how information may be appraised and offers a model for use in teaching the necessary skills. The minibook will be welcomed by anyone who appreciates the need for pupils to make prudent selection decisions when they interact with information and will undoubtedly help young people acquire skills which are integral to effective lifelong learning
