Publisher: Cambridge, Mass., Harvard UP [1968].
306 p., indexes; 21.5 cm.

Music, Musicians, and the Saint-Simonians.

Publisher: Chicago UP [1986].
xvi, 399 p., index, music, plates. "The Saint-Simonians, whose movement flourished in France between 1825 and 1835, are widely recognized for their contributions to history and social thought, but until now no full account has been made of the central role of the arts in their program. In this skillful interdisciplinary study, Ralph P. Locke describes and documents the Saint-Simonians' view of music as an ideological tool and the influence of this view on musical figures of the day. ...Among the musicians Locke discusses are Berlioz, Liszt, and Mendelssohn... Other musicians became the Saint-Simonians' faithful followers, among them Jules Vinçard, Dominique Tajan-Rogé, and particularly Félicien David, the movement's principal composer. Locke... includes detailed discussions of their music... Many of these pieces, rediscovered or reconstructed by Locke from authentic sources, are printed here." Paper; new from publisher.

Marsh, J. B. T.  
The Story of the Jubilee Singers
 Picture
Publisher: The Cleveland Printing & Publishing Co., 1892 Cleveland, OH.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall With supplement containing an account of their six years' tour around the world and many new songs by F. J. Loudin. "The story of the Jubilee Singers seems almost as little like a chapter from real life as the legend of the daring Argonauts who sailed with Jason on that famous voyage after the Golden Fleece. It is the story of a little company of emancipated slaves who set out to secure, by their singing, the fabulous sum of $20, 000 for the impoverished and unknown school in which they were students. The world was as unfamiliar to these untravelled freed people as were the countries through which the Argonauts had to pass; the social prejudices that confronted them were as terrible to meet as fire-breathing bulls or the warriors that sprang from the land sown with dragons' teeth; and no seas were ever more tempestuous than the stormy experiences that for a time tested their faith and courage. They were at times without the money to buy needed clothing. Yet in less than three years they returned, bringing back with them nearly one hundred thousand dollars. They had been turned away from hotels, and driven out of railway waiting rooms, because of their color. But they had been received with honor by the President of the United States, they had sung their slave songs before the Queen of Great Britain, and they had gathered as invited guests about the breakfast table of her Prime Minister. Their success was a remarkable as their mission was unique.." The Jubilee Singers were formed as a singing group by Fisk University, a school for ex-slaves, in 1871. One hundred thirty nine songs, including both words and music, are included in this book. 311 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre, but with no major flaws. No dust jacket.

He also describes Mussolini's own musical pretensions, the pro-fascist declarations of such foreign musicians as Stravinsky and Paderewski, and the effects on Italian musical life of the anti-Semitic edicts of 1939 and of the alliance with Hitler's Germany."

Tapper, Thomas  
From Palestrina to Grieg: First Year Music Biography
 Picture
Publisher: The Arthur P. Schmidt Co., 1946 Boston, MA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "There is a fascination in reading the lives of men of achievement. There is not alone the thread of main activity that persists throughout the individual life, but there is, as well, the continuity of this thread from generation to generation. In a group of biographies centering around men of like calling, the passing on from hand to hand of vases of truths is one of the outstanding factors of interest. Thus a group of biographies, chronologically arranged, becomes in some respects a history of the calling of which the personages concerned were disciples.." 247 pages.
