The cultural study of music : a critical introduction by Martin Clayton( Book )

34 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cultural Study of Music is an anthology of new writings that will serve as a basic textbook on music and culture. Increasingly, music is being studied as it relates to specific cultures-not only by ethnomusicologists, but by traditional musicologists as well. Drawing on writers from music, anthropology, sociology, and the related fields, the book both defines the field-i.e., "What is the relation between music and culture?"--And then presents case studies of particular issues in world musics. This book would serve as an introductory textbook for the cultural study of music, an area that is increasingly being taught at the upper-level undergraduate and graduate level. Plus it would appeal to scholars in all areas of music, reflecting the latest and most up to date thinking on the complex issues surrounding how music and culture interrelate
The Cambridge companion to brass instruments by Trevor Herbert( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Companion is the first book to cover so many diverse aspects of brass instruments and in such detail. It provides an overview of the history of brass instruments, and their technical and musical development. Although the greatest part of the volume is devoted to the western art music tradition, with chapters covering topics from the medieval to the contemporary periods, there are important contributions on the ancient world, non-western music, vernacular and popular traditions and the rise of jazz. Within this book are detailed descriptions of the development of individual instruments and the way that composers have written for them. Issues relating to performance practice recur as key considerations throughout this volume. Despite the breadth of its narrative, the Companion is rich in detail, with an extensive glossary and bibliography
Music & the British military in the long nineteenth century by Trevor Herbert( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although military music was among the most widespread forms of music making during the nineteenth-century, it has been almost totally overlooked by music historians. Music & the British Military in the Long Nineteenth Century however, shows that military bands reached far beyond the official ceremonial duties they are often primarily associated with and had a significant impact on wider spheres of musical and cultural life. Beginning with a discussion of the place of the military in civilian and social life, authors Trevor Herbert and Helen Barlow plot the story of military music from its sponsorship by military officers to its role as an expression of imperial force, which it took on by the end of the nineteenth century. Herbert and Barlow organize their study around three themes: the use of military status to extend musical patronage by the officer class; the influence of the military on the civilian music establishments; and an incremental movement towards central control of military music making by governments throughout the world. In so doing, they show that military music impacted everything from the configuration of the music profession in the major metropolitan centers, to the development of wind instruments throughout the century, to the emergence of organized amateur music making."--Publisher's description
The trombone by Trevor Herbert( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first fully comprehensive study of the trombone in English. It covers the instrument, its repertoire, the way it has been played and the social, cultural and aesthetic contexts within which it has developed. It explores the origins of the instrument, its invention in the fifteenth century, and its story up to modern times. And it reveals the hidden histories of the trombone and its players in different periods and different countries."--Jacket

Hymns and arias : great Welsh voices( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hymns and Arias: Great Welsh Voices is both a celebration and an assessment of the singers of Wales - those individuals and groups who have given real substance to the idea of Wales as a musical nation and to its description as 'The Land of Song'. It may not be a comprehensive appraisal of all great Welsh voices, but this lively and informative collection of essays certainly provides a broad and striking profile of the rich diversity of the Welsh singing tradition. This approach leads to an intriguing mix where opera divas rub shoulders with Valleys' choristers and international pop-stars." "A book such as this would be sadly lacking if it did not include chapters on Bryn Terfel, Stuart Burrows, Geraint Evans, Gwyneth Jones, Margaret Price, Robert Tear, Dennis O'Neill, Gwynne Howell, Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones. It would also fall short if it contained nothing on Cerys Matthews, James Dean Bradfield and Kelly Jones and their contribution to the recent history of Welsh pop music. Other chapters on topics seemed to choose themselves, and so the popular Welsh singers who kept millions at home in the radio days and the solo and choral champions of the eisteddfodau are also celebrated here." "Hymns and Arias: Great Welsh Voices will appeal to all those who relish the role of song in their culture."--BOOK JACKET

Composing by George Fenton( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Film and television composer George Fenton discusses his musical background and demonstrates the processes involved in composition by first playing a simple tune on the piano, then harmonizing it with the three primary triads. Several variations on the basic tune and harmony are then introduced to illustrate how small changes can evoke different effects and moods. Using synthesizers to alter the timbre and variations of the original tune, changes in mood are further explored
