The complete annotated Gilbert and Sullivan by W. S Gilbert( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan are a performing arts phenomenon. Wildly popular when first produced, they are if anything even more popular today. The Savoy Operas are available on records and compact discs, on audio and video tapes, on television, film, and radio, as well as through the more traditional medium of stage performances by both amateur and professional companies. Indeed, the works of Gilbert and Sullivan are produced more frequently than the plays of Rodgers and Hammerstein or any other musical partnership. The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan provides the complete text of all thirteen Gilbert and Sullivan operas still performed today, from Trial by Jury and The Sorcerer to Utopia Unlimited and The Grand Duke, and including all their greatest triumphs--H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, and The Mikado. No other book provides such extensive commentary on the texts of the Savoy Operas. Each work is thoroughly annotated, with the text, including stage directions, given on the right-hand page, and the notes on the left (keyed by line numbers). The annotations provide a wealth of information--everything from the identity of real-life people mentioned in the opera, to clear explanations of obscure words and phrases (such as legal terms) and other literary references, to comments from first-night critics, and much more. In addition, Bradley has written a marvelously informative introduction to the book as well as superb introductions to each piece, describing the genesis of the work, its performance history, and other fascinating tidbits (for instance, Sullivan wrote the music for H.M.S. Pinafore while wracked with pain from a kidney stone, and he wrote the score of The Pirates of Penzance while living at 45 East 20th Street, in New York City). A goldmine of information on the most popular light operas in the repertoire, The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan will delight the hearts of Savoyards everywhere."--Publisher's description

The call to seriousness : the Evangelical impact on the Victorians by Ian C Bradley( Book )

19 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the nature and the extent of the impact which the Evangelicals made on English life in the first half of the 19th century. Between 1780 and 1850 the English ceased to be one of the world's most aggressive, rowdy, outspoken, cruel and bloodthirsty nations and became one of the most inhibited, polite, orderly, tender-minded, prudish and hypocritical. This book chronicles that transformation
Oh joy! oh rapture! : the enduring phenomenon of Gilbert and Sullivan by Ian C Bradley( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Oh Joy! Oh Rapture! Ian Bradley explores the world of Gilbert and Sullivan over the last four and a half decades, looking at the way this 'phenomenon' is passed from generation to generation. Taking as his starting point the expiry of copyright on the opera libretti at the end of 1961 and using fascinating hitherto unpublished archive material, Bradley reveals the extraordinary story of the last years of the old D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, the guardian of Savoy tradition for over a hundred years, and the troubled history of its successor

Celtic Christianity : making myths and chasing dreams by Ian C Bradley( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current fascination with Celtic Christianity is the latest manifestation of a lingering love affair stretching back over the last 1300 years. This book explores how the native Christian communities of the British Isles from the fifth to the tenth centuries have been idealised and appropriated by succeeding generations who have projected their own preconceptions and prejudices on to a perceived golden age of Celtic Christianity

Abide with me : the world of Victorian hymns by Ian C Bradley( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the development of hymn-singing from a primarily private devotional practice in 1837 to a mainstay of public worship and, more remarkably, a component of popular culture by 1900. How did hymns manage, without help from recordings, radio or television, to permeate all levels of British society within one lifetime? Why were new hymns eagerly welcomed by members of all denominations and even by non-churchgoers? - Hugh D. McKellar. Bradley discusses the Victorian hymn from literary, theological, and cultural perspectives. In addition to tracing the importance of Victorian hymns in nineteenth-century novels and culture, Bradley investigates their significance in churches, their public popularity, and as forms of parody and as literary references. Bradley also speculates upon the political and sociological implications of Victorian hymnody. - Style, Winter, 1998 by William Baker, Kenneth Womack

Enlightened entrepreneurs by Ian C Bradley( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Victorian values of Liberalism and nonconformity permeated all aspects of society, not excluding industry and business. This insightful study follows 10 remarkable Victorian industrialists who came from relatively humble origins and rose through hard work, inventiveness, and application to become among the richest and most influential men of their generation. Each revolutionary showed an active and practical concern for his community and employees, providing them with housing, health care, education, recreation, and entertainment. For all their good deeds, these companies were also hugely profitable in the marketplace and include such household names as Cadburys, Colmans, Boots, and Unilever. This is the story of the rise of compassionate industry and the men who rode a wave of philanthropy to financial success

Believing in Britain : the spiritual identity of 'Britishness' by Ian C Bradley( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author explores the distinctive contributions to Britishness made over the centuries by the Celtic traditions of the Welsh and Irish, the Anglo-Saxon strain of tolerance associated with the English, the moral seriousness of the Scots, and the characteristics of exuberance, modesty and reserve introduced by new black and Asian Britons."--Jacket

The daily telegraph book of hymns by Ian C Bradley( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here are the full original texts of 150 of the best-loved hymns in the English language, from the time of the Early Church to the late 20th century. Each is accompanied by a fascinating commentary, giving biographical details of the author, such as the Calvinist creator of 'Rock of Ages' who once calculated that the average human sins 2,522,880,000 times, notes on the circumstances in which the hymn was written and how it has been used; and variant versions including the parodies of The Church's One Foundation and 'What a friend we have in Jesus' sung by British soldiers in the trenches of Flanders in the First World War. This book should greatly assist all those responsible for choosing hymns in churches and places of worship, provide rich resources for bedside reading and meditation and provide useful background material for the millions who watch Songs of Praise on television every sunday evening
Grace, order, openness and diversity : reclaiming liberal theology by Ian C Bradley( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Description In this highly accessible, passionately argued and scholarly book, Ian Bradley presents fundamentalism, born a hundred years ago in the United States of America, as the great twentieth-century heresy and aberration. He identifies and seeks to reclaim for the twenty first century a liberal theological tradition existing in Christianity, Islam, Judaism and the other major world faiths. This liberal heart is found in their scriptures and was often to the fore in their foundational stages but has more recently been overlaid with conservative reaction, fundamentalism and fear. He defines this liberal theology in terms of the four values of grace, order, openness and diversity which he suggests can be read by Christians as key attributes of the three persons of the Trinity and of God in Trinity as a whole. This book counters the growing influence of narrow, exclusive judgemental religious conservatism with a powerful reassertion of the liberal gospel of God's grace, goodness and generosity
