The book follows Steve from his childhood in Queens to Manhattan to Nashville and to his eventual arrival in Los Angeles, California.

Full of heartfelt stories, hard-earned wisdom, and delightful wit, I Wrote That One, Too . . . is a great read for musicians, music fans, and whoever has chased their dreams and survived the surprising but often serendipitous turns in the road.

Medieval Liturgical Chant and Patristic Exegesis: Words and Music in the Second-Mode Tracts (Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Music) By Emma Hornby

2009 | 344 Pages | ISBN: 1843834715 | PDF | 58 MB

How do text and melody relate in western liturgical chant? Is the music simply an abstract vehicle for the text, or does it articulate textual structure and meaning? These questions are addressed here through a case study of the second-mode tracts, lengthy and complex solo chants for Lent, which were created in the papal choir of Rome before the mid-eighth century. These partially formulaic chants function as exegesis, with non-syntactical text divisions and emphatic musical phrases promoting certain directions of inner meditation in both performers and listeners. Dr Hornby compares the four second-mode tracts representing the core repertory to related ninth-century Frankish chants, showing that their structural and aesthetic principles are neither Frankish nor a function of their notation in the earliest extant manuscripts, but are instead a well-remembered written reflection of a long oral tradition, stemming from Rome. Dr EMMA HORNBY teaches in the Department of Music at the University of Bristol.

A memoir by the master pianist, conductor and internationalist Daniel Barenboim – ‘the closest thing that classical music can offer to Nelson Mandela’ [THE TIMES]
‘The power of music lies in is its ability to speak to all aspects of the human being-the animal, the emotional, the intellectual, and the spiritual. Music teaches us, in short, that everything is connected’
Daniel Barenboim’s new book vividly describes his lifelong pursuit of knowledge and understanding, not only of music and of life, but of one through the other.
