  • Faceted Vocabularies for Music: A New Era in Resource Discovery
    • Abstract: The new faceted music vocabularies, the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT), and the music portions of the Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms for Library and Archival Materials (LCGFT), are long-anticipated products in a history of problem-solving approaches toward descriptive terms for music.1 These approaches have evolved from the early days of modern music librarianship, through more recent efforts to establish a thesaurus of music terminology. MLA’s Cataloging and Metadata Committee has collaborated with the Library of Congress for the past several years in a multiphase endeavor to design and build out these new vocabularies. A detailed account of this work, as well as ... Read More

  • Of Programs and Prima Donnas: Investigating British Music with the Musical
           Festivals Database
    • Abstract: How might the digital humanities help us rethink the work of performers and the European music history canon? Over the past few years, the digital humanities have been evolving into a complex field of study with diverse aims and methods. Defining what the digital humanities has been, is now, or may become is the subject of a wide-ranging and ongoing prognosticatory conversation. At this point, the results of the conversation are preliminary at best. Recent attempts to explain the field acknowledge that “digital humanities” itself is “increasingly becoming a ‘buzzword,’ ” and that it is frequently much easier to show examples of digital humanities projects than to explain what is in essence a moving target.1 ...

  • Barney and Gloria: Revisiting Tin Pan Alley
    • Abstract: As New York’s Tin Pan Alley era recedes into the past, scholars have the opportunity to reevaluate the hit-driven narrative of popular music history. Revisiting the colorful careers of its inhabitants reveals the complex economy in which they worked, the power wielded by corporations and licensing bodies, and the indefatigable spirit required to persist in the music industry. This is the story of two of these inhabitants, Barney Young—a composer, lawyer, personal manager, and music publisher—and his co-composer and fiancée Gloria Parker—also a bandleader, marimbist, and most exceptionally, musical glasses virtuoso. The story begins in the days of live-network big-band broadcasts when song plugging became an ... Read More

  • Notes for Notes
    • Abstract: PROGRESS: The following update relates specifically to the online-only music discussion summarized initially in the article, “Ether Today, Gone Tomorrow: 21st Century Sound Recording Collection in Crisis” (Notes 72, no. 3 [March 2016]), by Judy Tsou and John Vallier. Since the completion of the IMLS project (shared by the University of Washington and MLA), progress on at least one front has been made regarding the preservation of online-only music. In May 2016, the United States Copyright Office proposed the mandatory deposit of online-only sound recordings. This is an extension of their interim rule on the mandatory deposit of electronic books that are not available in a physical format. For more ... Read More

  • The Cambridge Companion to Duke Ellington ed. by Edward Green (review)
    • Abstract: The Cambridge Companion to Duke Ellington is the first volume in the Cambridge Companions to Music series to be devoted to a single jazz musician. (A companion for jazz overall, The Cambridge Companion to Jazz edited by Mervyn Cooke and David Horn, was published in 2002.) Ellington is an excellent choice to be featured in this series because he enjoyed a long career in which he produced many masterworks (and a few guilty pleasures, too), and because his status as a composer fits in well with the classical music composers featured in the other Companion volumes. Is he the most influential composer of the twentieth century, as the volume’s editor Edward Green asserts? Perhaps, although probably not according ... Read More

  • Listen to This: Miles Davis and Bitches Brew by Victor Svorinich (review)
    • Abstract: Miles Davis fans and scholars should rejoice. We now have a book that completes the set of works that account for the most important albums in Miles Davis’s career: Listen to This: Miles Davis and Bitches Brew, an excellent new volume that details the essence of the Bitches Brew album, written by Kean University professor Victor Svorinich.

  • The Cambridge Companion to Jewish Music ed. by Joshua S. Walden (review)
    • Abstract: The Cambridge Companion to Jewish Music, edited by Peabody Conservatory professor Joshua S. Walden, seeks to answer the seemingly obvious question, “What is Jewish music?” In the course of this book, however, the reader will learn that the response is not so clear-cut. Since Jews have lived in a multitude of countries, they have adopted and adapted numerous disparate musical styles to their own ancient traditions, thereby creating a rich musical tapestry that continues to evolve. Walden informs us that the term “Jewish music” comprises “folk songs in multiple languages, dance music played by ensembles of instrumentalists, forms of religious music developed in the synagogue and the home in far-flung ...

  • Fela: Kalakuta Notes by John Collins (review)
    • Abstract: Fela Anikulapo Kuti, or “Fela”, as he is known to millions, was one of Africa’s most influential and successful musicians. An uncompromising figure who promoted Pan-Africanism, he elevated music to the status of the voice of the people, declaring that “music is a weapon of the future” (Frank Tenaille, Music Is the Weapon of the Future: Fifty Years of African Popular Music [Chicago: Lawrence Hill Books, 2002], 76). His “weapon” of choice was Afrobeat, a new musical style that he created in the early 1970s. It both challenged authority and set a new musical direction. A challenge in writing about this larger-than-life figure is to separate the myth from reality. Fela attracts the kind of adulation ... Read More

In the decade and a half since its publication, Florida’s thesis has been scrutinized widely by sociologists, economists, and other scholars, with several scholars and the press challenging Florida’s sometimes Pollyannaish outlook and ...

  • Reinventing Dixie: Tin Pan Alley’s Songs and the Creation of the Mythic
           South by John Bush Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Why Dixie? This is the question that motivated author and historian John Bush Jones to write his book Reinventing Dixie: Tin Pan Alley’s Songs and the Creation of the Mythic South. The question emerged from a project in which Jones analyzed the lyrics and subject matter of sheet music in the John Hay Library, a special collections library at Brown University in Rhode Island. During his examination of the 140,000-piece collection, Jones discovered roughly 900 works about Dixie. However, the depictions of Dixie in these songs were not contemporary, but “idyllic portraits of an idealized South” (p. 11). Further investigation also determined that most of the Dixie songs were written by Tin Pan Alley composers ... Read More

  • Music in Vienna, 1700, 1800, 1900 by David Wyn Jones (review)
    • Abstract: In a musicological climate in which contextual and cultural studies are the rule, rather than the exception, David Wyn Jones’s new book Music in Vienna, 1700, 1800, 1900 stands out. Music in Vienna is exceptional not in departing from this rule, but in demonstrating how a thoroughly contextual and broadly cultural exploration of music and place can illuminate both. The book is divided into three sections, each comprising three chapters, preceded by an introductory chapter, “Telling Tales of Music in Vienna.” This introductory chapter sets up the three frames of reference within which Jones has confined what might otherwise have been the subject of at least three volumes. His frames of reference—which ... Read More

For Radicalism & Music, Pieslak has chosen to examine four communities and their music, case studies of which make up the first four chapters of the book: (1) al-Qa’ida and jihad-themed anashid; (2) racist skin-heads, especially the Hammerskin Nation, and white-supremacist-themed punk, Oi!, hardcore, metal, and “softer” styles; (3) a group Pieslak calls “Christian-Affiliated Radicals” that includes the Westboro Baptist Church ...

    • Abstract: Music and Capitalism, despite being rather brief for such an expansive topic, provides plenty of thought-provoking and useful insights about the ways modern capitalism has affected and interacted with the creation and consumption of music. Timothy Taylor touches on many aspects of the current music industry, including its relationships with artists and listeners, and incorporates the experiences of several different musicians. While the book covers a lot of ground in just over 200 pages, it also has gaps that leave a number of questions unanswered. Taylor’s lengthy introduction orients the reader to the theoretical background for this book, his definition of and understanding of neoliberal ... Read More

  • Reconceiving Structure in Contemporary Music: New Tools in Music Theory
           and Analysis by Judy Lochhead (review)
    • Abstract: Lochhead’s recent study is a significant contribution to music analysis that corresponds to the conceptual shift Western art music has undergone since the period of high modernism. The book argues that critical engagement with recent music is lagging behind; it aims not simply at reproducing the knowledge inherent in the artwork, but sets out to produce knowledge about musical experience itself—hence its insistence on structuring (rather than structure), conceived as “emergent, phenomenal, and malleable” (p. 7). This relates to a phenomenology of music, which has to be employed critically by the analyst, invoking a certain post-phenomenological attitude: the object of analysis is the content of listening, as ...

           John Martin (review)
    • Abstract: Almost two decades have passed since the publication of William E. Caplin’s seminal treatise, Classical Form, in which he proposes a theory of formal functions. Caplin defines a formal function as “the specific role played by a particular musical passage in the formal organization of a work” (Caplin, Classical Form: A Theory of Formal Functions for the Instrumental Music of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven [New York: Oxford University Press, 1998], 254). However, as disclosed by Janet Schmalfeldt in the special afterword of Formal Functions in Perspective: Essays on Musical Form from Haydn to Adorno (hereafter, FFP), Caplin had been involved in spirited discussions about formal functions with Schmalfeldt, his ...

  • Qui musicam in se habet: Studies in Honor of Alejandro Enrique Planchart

    • Abstract: This volume is a tribute not only to a preeminent musicologist, but to a highly influential colleague, mentor, and teacher. Planchart is primarily a medievalist, so many of the contributions in this festschrift address that field, but even the outliers among its pages reflect the impact that Planchart has had on colleagues and former students who have pursued musicological subjects in other eras. The festschrift opens with Fabrice Fitch’s discussion of his compositional homage to Planchart, Agricola IXa: Je nay dueil, for “solo cornetto muto.” Fitch notes that Planchart, too, is a composer, and a list of the dedicatee’s considerable body of compositions is given as part of a larger list of ...

Each author has systematically examined a “famous but surprisingly little-studied manuscript” (p. 3), reconsidering how the contents, paleographical details, and codicological details relate to the context in which it was produced and used. Published in Cambridge University Press’s Music in Context series, the essays are generally quite technical and addressed primarily to musicologists who study the medieval song repertory. This collection might also find a place as course ... Read More

  • Understanding the Leitmotif: From Wagner to Hollywood Film Music By
           Matthew Bribitzer-Stull (review)
    • Abstract: “Leitmotif ” is one of the few terms in music’s technical vocabulary to have left the confines of its discipline and entered common parlance. Its ubiquity has come with a trade-off, however, as the original intentions and intendant nuances behind the term attached to Richard Wagner since the 1870s have become at best obscured, at worst unintentionally misused and intentionally abused. Recognizing that such a phenomenon is an inherent property of any popular term, Matthew Bribitzer-Stull does not seek to return the leitmotif to the circumscribed environment of Wagnerian music drama. Rather, in Understanding the Leitmotif: From Wagner to Hollywood Film Music, he explodes it by showing how the leitmotif—and ... Read More

Instead of answering this overarching and frequently asked question, Kregor presents a body of evidence such as the opinions of contemporaneous criticism and reception, composers’ writings, and present-day musicologists’ views both in support of and against the notion of meaning in music. The book is organized chronologically, with occasional interruptions to highlight important themes and practices that cross several periods and geographical boundaries. While the content of the book is not comprehensive, Kregor presents Pro gram Music as a detailed study of music spanning the late eighteenth to early twentieth centuries ... Read More

  • The Operas of Maurice Ravel by Emily Kilpatrick (review)
    • Abstract: Maurice Ravel’s pair of chamber operas comprises just under two hours of music, hardly comparable in scope to twenty-five full-length examples by Massenet, twelve by Gounod, and thirteen by Saint-Saëns. And yet his fascination with the art form never wavered, reflected in frank comments for a 1932 interview with the journal Candide : “Wagner’s theater is absurd; something else must be devised. . . . Perhaps the solution lies in a mixture of song and dance, based on a rapid, dramatic plot” (cited in A Ravel Reader, ed. Arbie Orenstein [New York: Columbia University Press, 1990], 497). Starting with Shéhérazade, for which an overture is extant, through Olympia, La Cloche engloutie, and about a dozen other ... Read More

Instead of focusing on a single aspect of hymns, such as tune or historical background, Gray’s monograph steadfastly maintains a wide scope, even while treating an encyclopedic range of topics in turn. The book is organized into seven chapters, each treating one general approach to hymn study: “The Bible,” “Theology,” “Liturgy,” “Poetry,” “Music,” “History, Biography, and Socioculture,” and “Practice.” These core chapters are framed by an introduction and conclusion that argue for “a comprehensive and integrated hermeneutics of hymnody” (p. 12). Within each chapter this emphasis is ... Read More

  • The Guitar in Tudor England: A Social and Musical History by Christopher

    • Abstract: Although the four-course Renaissance guitar flourished above all in France, where several publications for the instrument appeared in the 1550s, it was played by men and women of varied social and musical backgrounds throughout Europe. The English were no exception. But unlike the cittern, a related four- or six-course wire-strung instrument popular in England and elsewhere, the Renaissance guitar (or gittern in the English of the time) has received little attention from scholars interested in Tudor musical life. The surviving sources, moreover, offer limited and often obscure evidence of repertoire, development, or social meaning. The purpose of Christopher Page’s book is to “frame a social and musical ...

  • The History of the Erard Piano and Harp in Letters and Documents,
           1785–1959 ed. by Robert Adelson, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: The Swiss-Alsatian instrument maker Sébastien Erard arrived in Paris in 1768. It was a fertile time for an aspiring keyboard builder: the amateur music market was on the cusp of enormous expansion, attested to by the rapid increase in sheet music sales and circulating music libraries. By 1777, Erard had launched a workshop on the property of a wealthy patron, the Duchesse de Villeroy, building for her one of his first pianos. A little more than a decade later, he and his older brother Jean-Baptiste established themselves as Erard Frères, inaugurating a company history notable for its technological invention and longevity. Upon Sébastien’s death in 1831, Erard Frères passed to his nephew, Pierre, and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Many regard enfant terrible Jean Cocteau (1889–1963) as a “jack of all trades,” as Philippe Halsman’s famous 1949 photo embodies (http://time.com/3878148/jean-cocteau-by-philippe-halsman-playful-portraits-of-a-surrealist/; accessed 3 October 2016). In this regard, and given the broad range of work produced by this poet, novelist, playwright, muralist, portraitist, actor, and movie director, we may better understand the reasons that reception history has underplayed his output as a music critic and his collaborations with musicians, even in those studies that review his contributions to the musical field. For at least a decade, musicologists David Gullentops and Malou Haine have endeavored “to ... Read More

    • Abstract: George Frideric Handel: Collected Documents (HCD), of which the first volume (1609–1725) appeared in April 2014, is a comprehensive collection of documents from contemporaneous sources relating to Handel’s life and work. Of the planned five volumes, the second (1725–1734), reviewed below, appeared in 2015. The third volume (1734–1742) is, as of this writing, slated for publication in January 2017. The research project under the direction of Donald Burrows, based at The Open University’s London Regional Centre in Camden Town, dates back to 2007. Until 2014, the principal reference work was the fourth volume of Händel-Handbuch (HHb), dedicated to documents covering Handel’s entire life, and ... Read More

The Sourcebook for Research in Music uses a different model, epitomized by Vincent Duckles’s Music Research and Reference Materials, in which the research materials take center stage. It is a selective annotated bibliography presented in seven chapters preceded by a chapter of introductory materials.

  • The Ferrell-Vogüé Machaut Manuscript by Guillaume de Machaut

There still exist manuscripts of music, however, that are either so inaccessible or so important, that a justifiable case can be made for a publisher to go to the trouble and expense of producing a facsimile edition of them. The Ferrell-Vogüé manuscript of Guillaume de Machaut (ca. 1300–1377), hereinafter referred to by its scholarly siglum, Vg, is such a manuscript. Inaccessible to scholars for nearly its entire modern history, it is now available from the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music ... Read More

    • Abstract: The succinct title of the volume I Kyrie di TR93 refers to a series of thirty-nine consecutive Kyrie settings in the manuscript Trent, Archivio Diocesano, 93, pertaining to the seven Trent Codices so important to our understanding of polyphony in the early- and mid-fifteenth century. This volume is the second in the ongoing series Codici musicali trentini del Quattrocento, which will provide a complete scholarly edition of the codices. (The first, devoted to the sequences, was published in 2012 and edited by Marco Gozzi.) The editor, Antonio Chemotti, refers to the manuscript as a “Kyriale” (p. 11), in reference to chant manuscripts transmitting the Ordinary of the Mass. The Kyries in Trent 93 fill up three ...

  • Ercole Pasquini Toccate, canzoni, ricercari. ed. by Paul Kenyon (review)
    • Abstract: This is the first of two publications that will comprise the collected keyboard works of Ercole Pasquini. Born in Ferrara in the mid-sixteenth century and active in Rome until at least 1608, Ercole is not to be confused with Bernardo Pasquini, who lived a century later. Although a prolific composer of keyboard and other music, Bernardo appears to have been less innovative than was Ercole in his thirty or so extant works. Ercole was one of the very first composers of keyboard music that can be described as “baroque,” and he seems to have provided models without which Frescobaldi, his successor as organist at Rome’s Cappella Giulia, might not have written what he did. Unlike Frescobaldi, whose ... Read More

    • Abstract: A principal focus for eighteenth-century musicological studies in recent decades has been exploring the various contexts in which the canonic composers lived and worked. Naturally, Vienna has received considerable attention. Many of these studies have concentrated on opera buffa, and thanks to the efforts of scholars such as Daniel Heartz, Mary Hunter, John Platoff, James Webster, and others, we now have a broad base of knowledge for understanding the genre. Examinations of Vienna’s German-language operatic productions have not been as numerous, and the amount of published critical editions and recordings lags behind as well. The current state of affairs makes David Buch’s latest opera publications for A-R ... Read More
