8 AGRICOLA, Johann Friedrich BAIRD, Julianne C. , (ed.) Introduction to the Art of Singing by Johann Friedrich Agricola. First Edition in dustjacket.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1995, ISBN:052145428X 
AGRICOLA, Johann Friedrich. Introduction to the Art of Singing by Johann Friedrich Agricola. Translated and edited by Julianne C. Baird. (Cambridge) :Cambridge University Press, (1995). First Edition. Pp (8),ix,(1),1-298. 8v o, green cloth, silver lettering to spine. In the Cambridge Musical Texts and Monographs series. "Johann Friedric Agricola published his Introduction to the Art of Singing in Germany in 1757. It brought to a German readerships the 1723 treatise of the Italian singing teacher and castrato, Tosi, to which Agricola added his own running commentary. The Introduction was recognized as invaluable not only for teachers and their pupils but also for advanced singers and professionals. Charles Burney, for example, described it as 'the best book on the subject in German' and hailed the author as 'the best singing master in Germany.' This present edition, translated with introduction and annotations by the celebrated singer Julianne Baird, makes Agricola's work available for the first time in English. Tosi's work was the first basic treatise on singing: it codified important aesthetic principles and gave practical directions for the singers of his time. Agricola, a pupil of J.S. Bach, addressed the style of singing at the court of Frederick the Great, and brought Tosi's work up-to-date. His commentaries are so extensive that the Introduction stands on its own as an important document in the history of performance practice." Very good in dustjacket. 45.00

18 ATTALI, Jacques. Noise : The Political Economy of Music. Translation by Brian Massumi. Foreword by Frederic Jameson. Afterword by Susan McClary
University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis , 1985, ISBN:0816612870 
ATTALI, Jacques. Noise : The Political Economy of Music. Translation by Brian Massumi. Foreword by Frederic Jameson. Afterword by Susan McClary. Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, (1985). Pp [i]-xiv,[1]-179,(3). Index. 8vo, illustrated brown card covers. Theory and History of Literature, Volume 16. “In Attali's historical account, the reciprocal relation between music and political economy occurs in four overlapping stages, which also define the structure of this book. The first three stages are sacrifice, characterized by the ritual practices of sacred societies; representation, music-making as a professional activity tied to the marketplace, with music itself a commodity but still as live performance, and repetition, the era of the recording, when music as commodity is offered in endless reproduction, with live performance secondary and the creationof demand all-important. A fourth stage, composition, is in Attali's account a Utopian sketch, not yetclear in its implications; people will make their own music, for themselve s, prefiguring a free and decentralized society and political economy.” (p.i).
