A Shaker musical legacy( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings more than one hundred previously unpublished Shaker songs to the attention of scholar, performers, and aficionados of folk music. A Shaker Musical Legacy introduces Shaker songs and dances that Brother Ricardo Belden, the last male member of the Hancock Shakers, gave in original manuscript form to Jerry and Sybil Count, the first directors of the Shaker Village Camp. The Opdahls have selected from and transcribed this music and included dance directions to honor Brother Ricardo's hope that doing so would keep alive a part of the Shaker heritage." "The songs are transcribed as modern musical scores for use by contemporary musicians and singers. Many examples are also shown in their original Shaker musical notation. Step-by-step instructions show how to perform the dances as the Shakers themselves danced them. Explanatory notes introduce each of nine musical sections."--BOOK JACKET

The Shaker( )

in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1878, the main Shaker periodical changed title from The Shaker to The Shaker manifesto. At the same time, the place of publication moved from New York to Shaker Village, N.H. The New Hampshire printers composed a trial issue, not for general distribution, to assist in the transition from a folio to a quarto format. The articles were contributed in part by Shaker children. The trial issue carries the same numbering as the first issue of The Shaker manifesto but the content is completely different. Only 50 copies of the trial issue were printed. Cf. David D. Newell Shaker Literature
