A new English music : composers and folk traditions in England's musical renaissance from the late 19th to the mid-20th century by Tim Rayborn( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turn of the 20th century was a time of great change in Britain. The empire saw its global influence waning and its traditional social structures challenged. There was a growing weariness of industrialism and a desire to rediscover tradition and the roots of English heritage. A new interest in English folk song and dance inspired art music, which many believed was seeing a renaissance after a period of stagnation since the 18th century. This book focuses on the lives of seven composers--Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, George Butterworth, Ernest Moeran, Philip Heseltine (Peter Warlock), Gerald Finzi and Percy Grainger--whose work was influenced by folk songs and early music. Each chapter provides historical background and tells the fascinating story of a musical life [Publisher description]
Shakespeare's ear : dark, strange, and fascinating tales from the world of theater by Tim Rayborn( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's Ear presents dark and sometimes funny pieces of fact and folklore that bedevil the mostly unknown history of theater. All manner of skullduggery, from revenge to murder, from affairs to persecution, proves that the drama off-stage was just as intense as any portrayed on it. The stories include those of: An ancient Greek writer of tragedies who dies when an eagle drops a tortoise on his head. A sixteenth-century English playwright who lives a double life as a spy and perishes horribly, stabbed above the eye. A small Parisian theater where grisly horrors unfold on stage. The gold earring that Shakespeare wears in the Chandos portrait, and its connections to bohemians and pirates of the time. Journey back to see theatrical shenanigans from the ancient Near East, explore the violent plays of ancient Greece and Rome, revel in the Elizabethan and Jacobean golden age of blood-thirsty drama, delight in the zany and subversive antics of the Commedia dell'arte, and tremble at ghostly incursions into playhouses. Here you will find many fine examples of playwrights, actors, and audiences alike being horrible to each other over the centuries"--

Against the friars : antifraternalism in medieval France and England by Tim Rayborn( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The friars represented a remarkable innovation in medieval religious life. Founded in the early 13th century, the Franciscans and Dominicans seemed a perfect solution to the Church''s troubles in confronting rapid changes in society. They attracted considerable enthusiastic support, especially from the papacy, to which they answered directly. In their first 200 years, membership grew at an astonishing rate, and they became counsellors to princes and kings, receiving an endless stream of donations and gifts. Yet there were those who were not so enamored of them, who believed the adulation was misguided or even dangereous, and who saw in the friars' actions only hypocrisy, deceit, greed and even signs of the end of the world."--P.
