Solie, Ruth A.
Just as the preoccupations of any given cultural moment make their way into the language of music, the experience of music makes its way into other arenas of life. To unearth these overlapping meanings and vocabularies from the Victorian era, Ruth A. Solie examines sources as disparate as journalism, novels, etiquette manuals, religious tracts, and teenagers' diaries for the muffled, even subterranean, conversations that reveal so much about what music meant to the Victorians. Her essays, giving voice to 'what goes without saying' on the subject - that cultural information so present and pervasive as to go unsaid - fill in some of the most intriguing blanks in our understanding of music's history. This much-anticipated collection, bringing together new and hard-to-find pieces by an acclaimed musicologist, mines the abundant casual texts of the period to show how Victorian-era people - English and others - experienced music and what they understood to be its power and its purposes. Solie's essays start from topics as varied as Beethoven criticism, "Macmillan's Magazine", George Eliot's "Daniel Deronda", opera tropes in literature, and the Victorian myth of the girl at the piano. They evoke common themes - including the moral force that was attached to music in the public mind and the strongly gendered nature of musical practice and sensibility - and in turn suggest the complex links between the history of music and the history of ideas. 223pp. N.B. Small amount of pencil underlining.

Edited By Humez, Jean M.
"The following morning, Mother led Israel and Elizabeth out of the house and spoke to them as follows: 'Last night, when we were in the worship of God, I saw a number of souls rise from the dead, and come into the resurrection of life. And when you [Israel] was here before, I saw your mother [his mother had been dead thirty years] and when you was released, and your flesh turned to its natural color again, she was released also and came into the resurrection...Israel, you have begun to bear for other souls, and you must never give out, till the last soul is gathered in. When you get home, tell your father and stepmother that your mother is risen from the dead.'" - from the book.A fascinating introduction to the world of the early Shakers, this anthology documents the contributions to Shaker religion made by women during its first seventy years. This period (1780-1851) saw Mother Ann Lee's complex legacy as the founder of a new religion realized in a network of nineteen separatist celibate communities in eight states. By giving us a closer look at the ways in which women influenced the evolution of the religion during this formative era, this book contributes to a more accurate vision of Shakerism and highlights the ways in which gender can play an important role in the creation of a new religious institution. 294pp. Previous owners inscription to ffep.
