From New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane, an epic, unflinching tale of Prohibition and one mans rise from petty thief on the streets of Boston to the greatest rum runner on the Gulf Coast. Meticulously researched and artfully told, Lehane solidifies his reputation among the most interesting and accomplished American novelists of any genre or category (Washington Post).
Andrew Gant's compelling account traces English church music from Anglo-Saxon origins to the present. It is a The Pixies Doolittle free ebook history of the music and of the people who made, sang and listened to it. It shows the role church music has played in ordinary lives and how it reflects those lives back to us. The author considers why church music remains so popular and frequently tops the classical charts and why the BBC's Choral Evensong remains the longest-running radio series ever. He shows how England's church music follows the contours of its history and is the soundtrack of its changing politics and culture, from the mysteries of the Mass to the elegant decorum of the Restoration anthem, from stern Puritanism to Victorian bombast, and thence to the fractured worlds of the twentieth century as heard in the music of Vaughan Williams and Britten. This is a book for everyone interested in the history of English music, culture and society.
