"Idealism, rebellion against complacency, and an urgent need for new linguistic power with which to transcend their sense of spiritual crisis were characteristics common to expressionist painters, poets, and dramatists as well as to composers. [... The authors] point out influential expressionist tendencies in Wagner, Richard Strauss, Mahler, Scriabin, and Mussorgsky,all of whom prepared the ground as forerunners to musical expressionism. T he authors examine strongly expressionist traits in the works not only of Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern, but also of Bartok, Stravinsky, Ives, and a 'second generation' -- Hindemith, Krenek, and Weill; and they find a legacy of expressionism in such composers as Ruggles and Shostakovich and in other iconoclasts still living." - from the dust jacket.

171 CREIGHTON, Helen and Doreen H. SENIOR SENIOR, Doreen H. Traditional Songs from Nova Scotia. 1st in dj
Ryerson Press, Toronto, 1950, 
CREIGHTON, Helen and Doreen H. Senior. Traditional Songs from Nova Scotia. Toronto : The Ryerson Press, (September 1950). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-xvi,1-284,(4). 8vo, green cloth. "Twenty years ago Miss Creighton first set out to collect folk songs by noting the tunes on a little melodeon; later she used a dictaphone, a decided improvement. Then, in 1932, Miss Doreen Senior was brought out from England to teach folk dancing at the Nova Scotia Summer School. She was a musician of unusual ability, and Miss Creighton turned the noting of the tunes over to her, while she herself concentrated on the words. This happy collaboration went on at intervals until the war came, in 1939, and Miss Creighton began collecting with the latest in phonograph recording equipment. From these experiences comes the present volume of folk songs collected from various parts of Nova Scotia. In 'Traditional Songs from Nova Scotia', with the words and music of one hundred and thirty-eight songs, Helen Creighton consolidates her position as the outstanding collector of ballads and folksongs in English-speaking Canada. This is not to be wondered at, since her native Maritimes are indubitably the richest storehouses in Canada of traditional English folk songs. For the serious studentof folk songs, for the professional singer of folk songs, for the ordinary body who merely likes to know, and maybe sing the grand old traditional so ngs, this collection, garnered lovingly and carefully from fisher folk and other folk, will be a treasure trove." - from the dust jacket.

177 CUMMINS, Linda. Chiasma, 18). BISHOP, Michael, ed. Debussy and the Fragment. First Edition, Paperback.
Editions Rodopi, Amsterdam, 2006, ISBN:9042020652 
CUMMINS, Linda. Debussy and the Fragment . Amsterdam: Editions Rodopi, 2006. Pp. (10),[11]-192. 8vo, illustrated purple card covers. Chiasma, number 18. General editor: Michael Bishop. "Rather than solid frames, some less than perfect aesthetic objects have permeable membranes which allow them to diffuse effortlessly into the everyday world. In the parallel universes of music and literature, Linda Cummins extols the poetry of such imperfection. She places Debussy's work within a tradition thriving on anti-Aristotelian principles: motley collections, crumbling ruins real or fake, monstrous hybrids, patchwork and palimpsest, hasty sketches, ellipses, truncated beginnings and endings, meandering arabesques, irrelevant digressions, auto-quotations. Sensitive to the intermittences of memory and experience and with a keen ear for ironic intrusion, Cummins draws the reader into the Western cultural past in search of the surprisingly ubiquitous aesthetic of the unfinished, negatively silhouetted against expectations of rational coherence. Theories popularized by Schlegel and embraced by the French Symbolists are only the first waypoint on an elaborately illustrated tour reaching back to Petrarch. Cummins meticulously applies the derived results to Debussy's scores and finds convincing correlations in this chiasmatic crossover." - from the rear cover. Very good. 30.00

Brian Craig Uniacke Cuthbertson (b. 1936, Sackville, New Brunswick).

A history of Nova Scotia's annual indoor military extravaganza.

"Centuries ago, drummers beat tatto in the evenings to signal that it was time for solduers to return to their quarters. Today, a tattoo is something quite different: part military ceremony, part theatre, it's an extravaganza of music and song, pageantry and dance, competition and comedy that entertains as much as it pays tribute to tradition.

Since 1979, visitirs and performers have come from enar and far, in ever-increasing numbers, to be a part of Nova Scotia's unique tattoo experience. In rich detail and evocative images, "Gunpowder and Grease Paint" commemorates The Nova Scotia International Tattoo's twenty-fifth show at the Metro Centre in Halifax, telling the story not only of how thwe tattoo came to be, but also what - and who - makes it happen every year. An illuminating history, a priceless photo album, and a valuable keepsake, "Gunpowder and Grease Paint" prersents the tattoo as it has never been seen before." - from rear cover.
