  • "Cashville" - Dilution of Original Country Music Identity through Increasing Commercializationby Stephanie Schäfer

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 36.83

    Hauptbeschreibung Where I come from, it's cornbread and chicken. This line from Alan Jackson's country hit defines the genre as the music of the American South. All its ambiguity set aside, the South stands proudly for its hospitality, politeness, sense of place and community. Family and religion are traditionally more important down there than in... more...

  • "Country Music is Wherever the Soul of a Country Music Fan Is": Opryland U.S.A. and the Importance of Home in Country Musicby Jeremy Hill

    The University of North Carolina Press 2011; US$ 0.99

    "Nixon's visit (only five months before his resignation) was seen by national journalists and politicos to be a trip to one of the few places where he would still receive a warm reception, and it was quite warm indeed. Nixon took the stage, played two songs on the piano, and bantered with Roy Acuff." When the Opry changed sites it wasn't without... more...

  • "Do You Know...?"by Robert R. Faulkner; Howard S. Becker

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00

    Every night, somewhere in the world, three or four musicians will climb on stage together. Whether the gig is at a jazz club, a bar, or a bar mitzvah, the performance never begins with a note, but with a question. The trumpet player might turn to the bassist and ask, “Do you know ‘Body and Soul’?”—and from there the... more...

  • 'Food for Apollo'by Dorothy T. Potter

    Lehigh University Press 2011; US$ 64.99

    'Food for Apollo:' Cultivated Music in Antebellum Philadelphia details the evolution and significance in that city of what is often called 'classical' music. Performances in a variety of settings, from 'long rooms' in taverns to large theatres and concert halls, facilitated this process over approximately 100 years. Philadelphia's thriving music publishing... more...

  • "I Hear America Singing"by Rachel Clare Donaldson

    Temple University Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    Folk music is more than an idealized reminder of a simper past. It reveals a great deal about present-day understandings of community and belonging. It celebrates the shared traditions that define a group or nation. In America, folk music--from African American spirituals to English ballads and protest songs--renders the imagined community more tangible... more...

  • "Majestas Mariae"by Christiane Wiesenfeldt

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 55.28

    Die Geschichte der musikalischen Marienverehrung ist so alt wie das Christentum selbst. Mit ihr verbanden sich Ansprüche aus der Volksfrömmigkeit ebenso wie aus der Institution Kirche: eine spannende und spannungsvolle Mischung, die Komponisten über Jahrhunderte inspirierte. Auch in die Messe hielt die Marienverehrung symbolisch Einzug. Sie schlug... more...
