About this product
- DescriptionThe Moravians, or Bohemian Brethren, early Protestants who settled in Pennsylvania and North Carolina in the eighteenth century, brought a musical repertoire that included hymns, sacred vocal works accompanied by chamber orchestra, and instrumental music by the best-kwn European composers of the day. Moravian composers -- mostly pastors and teachers trained in the styles and genres of the Haydn-Mozart era -- crafted thousands of compositions for worship, and copied and collected thousands of instrumental works for recreation and instruction. The book's chapters examine sacred and secular works, both for instruments -- including pia solo -- and for voices. The Music of the Moravian Church demonstrates the varied roles that music played in one of America's most distinctive eth-cultural populations, and presents many distinctive pieces that performers and audiences continue to find rewarding. Contributors: Alice M. Caldwell, C. Daniel Crews, Lou Carol Fix, Pauline M. Fox, Albert H. Frank, Nola Reed Kuse, Laurence Libin, Paul M. Peucker, and Jewel A. Smith. Nola Reed Kuse, director of the Moravian Music Foundation since 1994, is active as a flutist, composer, and arranger. She is the editor of The Collected Wind Music of David Moritz Michael.
