I close the evening by asking my students to guess which three artists appeared at the top of the American charts as came to a close. They are then asked to consider why these particular musicians are holding down the number one position. A second emphasis of the class analyzes the ways in which the Beatles revolutionized the music industry while reacting to and responding in step with their fans as various cultural, societal and political events occurred.
Another point of reference is the recording studio. As the Beatles matured, George Martin had the self-confidence to back off and allow them more freedom in the construction and recording of their songs. It showed musicians that they can write and perform their own material without having to rely on the Brill Building. Coming to terms with the resources available on the Beatles and the sixties has required an almost single-minded focus.
The summer before I taught my first class, I was scheduled to work through various nineteenth-century diaries in the British Library that pertained to my research on women musicians. Once I saw how enormous the Beatles bibliography was, I had to change my strategy. I spent the entire summer reading nothing but books and memoirs related to the Beatles and the sixties. Three years later, my reading schedule has not changed.
The bibliography grows expeditiously, and it seems that every time I turn around there is a new scholarly or mainstream study on the group and various new media including tribute CDs and DVDs to be critiqued. This does not even include scholarly articles, newspaper and popular journal articles and reviews, interviews or stories that appear across the globe on a daily basis.
Keeping up with the Fab Four is a full time job and an expensive one at that. Students always want to know what the latest material is and whether it is valuable to their studies. The Beatles Anthology presents the story the way the Beatles want it told. Students are assigned two research essays. Throughout the semester students also complete seven journals that allow them to engage critically with the thematic elements of the course. These are applied assignments in which they are expected to offer their own opinions and support them with concrete examples.
Students are also encouraged to discuss the assignments with their friends and family members. One of the most stressful journals asks them to write their own lyrics. After writing one verse, they are expected to talk about the writing process. How did they write the lyric?
From where did they draw their inspiration? What difficulties did they encounter? In doing this exercise they learn firsthand how difficult it is to craft quality lyrics let alone to consistently write number one songs. One spring I was surprised when half of the class wanted to be Ringo Starr.
Students claimed they wanted to be a member of the band, but it was just too much pressure to be John or Paul. While many wanted to be John for just one day so that they could see the world through his eyes, Ringo was only expected to sing one song per album, and he looked like he enjoyed being the drummer.
I want my students to see them as individuals who never gave up on their dream and who spent countless hours honing their craft in Hamburg and in the studio. I am able to present them as mere mortals by showing pictures of various Beatles sights in London and Liverpool. Synopsis of Vocal Musick by Rebecca Herissone. Aldershot: Ashgate, This was an important time as far as music theory is concerned; as several scholars have suggested, Britain is one of the earliest places where the outlines of a modern functional tonality surfaces—the more we know about the texts from this period, the better our understanding of where the later system comes from.
In keeping with other British theory sources from the seventeenth century, e. He simply sets out to produce a how-to book with some songs attached—not, as Herissone points out, songs with a how-to attached 4. The intended audience is the singer, not the composer. Its purpose is made clear by its contents, which include a sight-singing manual, an appropriate addition for a pedagogical book such as this, particularly in a period when singers used anywhere from four to seven syllables for sight-singing. In this sense, the author differs from most other British writers, who generally felt the need to include some discussion of less immediately practical material.
Nonetheless, theory forms a significant part of the text, and how A. Curiously, the Synopsis was not only part of the British tradition of instruction manuals and quasi-theory treatises, but it also introduced into Britain new Continental ideas concerning meter and pitch. This method follows the French and Italian practice that was standard on the Continent at this time but rare in Britain. Similarly unusual is his discussion of pitch proportions, for A.
These aspects of the Synopsis suggest that A. Further indication of his expertise lies in his knowledge of theory but not practice, for Herissone notes that although A. One of the most useful contributions Herissone makes in her edition is placing the Synopsis in perspective to British and Continental theory of the seventeenth century. She traces possible sources for A. Perhaps most strikingly, A.

Furthermore, Herissone notes that unlike other British authors, A. His detailed discussion of solmization indicates that he was unaware of contemporary British practice, much in the way he seems ignorant of Italian musical influence on British music of this period. Over one thousand footnotes occupying almost a quarter of the pages stand as proof of her diligence and grasp of the extensive source material: an abundance of letters, notebooks, diaries and family documents, music manuscripts and published scores. In all of this Professor Palmer seems to have left few, if any, stones unturned.
Born in , the son of an immigrant Italian pastry cook and English mother, he was a chorister at the Chapel of the Sardinian Embassy under Samuel Webbe , but while still in his teens was appointed organist at the Portuguese Embassy c. Here he would remain for some 25 years, establishing an enviable reputation for the quality of the music.
In one respect, however, he occupied a decidedly unusual position through his acquaintance with Leigh Hunt, Shelley, Keats and other literary figures: he and Hunt were close friends and his home was one of the regular meeting places for a small group of musicians and literati. How much more is there to be discovered about this largely unexplored aspect of early 19th-century London society?
Set up in for the benefit of his eldest son, Alfred, with Novello and his wife as major shareholders, it provided an outlet for many of his own editions. And, with the Novello imprint still with us today, it has remained his principal legacy. Given that he was born only a generation after Mozart it is surprising that more is not said about the evidence these editions provide of contemporary performance practice, not least in terms of the layout of keyboard reductions, or organ registration. As an organist he belonged to the old English school for whom the pedals were an optional extra—the same tradition as that of the cathedral composers whose works he edited.
Any quibbles are minor—the omission of John Clarke Whitfeld in the transition from figured bass to written-out keyboard part, for example—or the introduction of names with little or no accompanying explanation. The Moravian musician C. Latrobe 81, , Sir John Trevelyan , or the harp maker J. Stumpff 85 would all have benefited in this respect. The index, too, could usefully have been expanded. Lastly, the discussion of Novello as a composer takes place, as it were, in a vacuum, with the reader being given little idea of the scope or chronology of his output.
But I must end by heartily commending this book to all those with an interest in musical life in 19th-century London, and congratulating the author on her splendid achievement in so successfully rehabilitating this hitherto rather shadowy figure. Ilias Chrissochoidis received a Mayers Fellowship at the Huntington. Tamara S. Carrie Wilson and her husband Edward Green gave a two recitals—with critical commentary based on the philosophy of Aesthetic Realism—of songs in English last April, as part of the Pro Cultura Musica concert series and at the Aricana Foundation in Rosario, Argentina.
The first half of the recital was of music entirely from the British Isles; the second half, of the United States. Thomas Schuttenhelm was recently awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to continue his research on Michael Tippett examining his creative process and doing a comparative study of his idea notebooks, sketches, manuscripts, and published scores.
He will be residing in London for the year, working mainly at the British Library. The one-day conference will begin with a paper by keynote speaker Byron Adams and conclude with a recital of chamber music by Elgar and his contemporaries. The conference will focus on the organ and its music in the 17th and 18th centuries, centering around "The Organ in Stuart and Georgian England: its Role through Change to the Handel Commemoration.

On Sunday evening, Mr. Awash in Roman Catholic mysticism, the work vividly depicts the journey of a pious soul into the afterlife and judgment. View all New York Times newsletters. The ardent tenor Vinson Cole was deeply moving in the title role, while the striking mezzo- soprano Jane Irwin radiated supernal reassurance as the guardian angel. The baritone John Hancock and the Bard Festival Chorale provided substantial contributions, and the orchestra, superbly responsive to Mr.
Now and then, he was outshone. Lane and the Jupiter String Quartet, was revealed as an overlooked masterpiece. There was more, of course, far too much to detail. The musicologist and composer Derek Scott organized a delectable concert on Saturday morning devoted to bawdy music-hall songs, while Sunday morning brought a provocative panel discussion exploring issues of masculinity and sublimated desire.
All of these events were well attended and enthusiastically discussed afterward, standard operating procedure for a festival that is part boot camp for the brain, part spa for the spirit.
