A chronology of the works of Guillaume Dufay : based on a study of mensural practice by Charles Hamm( Book )

23 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although, according to the author, much sound research, has been done in the Dufay era in recent years," Charles Hamm's book marks the first time an attempt has been made at a comprehensive chronology of the works of this composer. Professor Hamm approaches all Dufay's compositions from the point of view of mensural practice, and has been able to date each piece more precisely than would have been possible in a chronology based on manuscript studies or stylistic analyses. He has divided the works into nine groups, according to details of mensural usage, and on the basis of datable works and other evidence has suggested dates within which the pieces of each group were written. Based on his study of Dufay's mensural practice, the author suggests that the Missa Sancti Antoni and several other works attributed to Dufay may not have been written by him. Originally published in 1964.

Putting popular music in its place by Charles Hamm( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of essays by the musicologist Charles Hamm focuses on the context of popular music: the interrelationships between popular music and other styles and genres, including classical music, the meaning of popular music for audiences, and the institutional appropriation of this music for hegemonic purposes. Specific topics include the use of popular song to rouse antislavery sentiment in mid-nineteenth-century America, the reception of such African-American styles and genres as rock 'n' roll and soul music by the black population of South Africa, the question of genre in the early songs of Irving Berlin, the attempts by the governments of South Africa and China to impose specific bodies of music on their populations, the persistence of the minstrel show in rural twentieth-century America and the impact of modernist modes of thought on writing about popular music, with specific engagement with the work of John Cage."--Jacket
