Quick Quotations Available Jul 7, 2006
Need a quote to go with the hymn "Just As I am"? Here is a useful calendar for devotion and for musical miscellany. Constructed like other devotionals, each day of the calendar includes a scripture, a story of a musician, and an anecdote, question or challenge. There are six days each for the Beatles, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, five each for J.S. Bach, Brahms, Handel and Tchaikovsky. Albeit Jewish to his death, Benny Goodman's life is described on 3 dates. There are many other musicians' lives in this book: Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Lowell Mason. Kavanaugh, a composer, conductor and ordained minister, ends this with an excellent index and glossary of six pages; here he explains very concisely terms from camp meetings to motet, and various styles of music. This devotional makes a fine shelf companion for Patrick Kavanaugh's "The Music of Angels" (1999).
The world of music for my world Feb 27, 2001
I have REALLY enjoyed this book! It is quick and easy to read for busy people, and yet is so down to earth practical. Each day's entry includes "something from the score" (a Scripture passage); "something from the repertoire" (stories from music past and present, and from all styles); and "something from the conductor" (an action point or activity that you can put into practice). The authors have been involved in music performance and teaching all their lives, and have collected a wide variety of stories from all types of music -- classical, jazz, gospel, rock, country, etc. -- the kind of stories that catch your attention in the morning and stick with you all day! I HIGHLY recommend it as a devotional, or just as an interesting read for anyone who enjoys music.
