LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2001. 330pp Looks unused. In The English Musical Renaissance Stradling and Hughes argue that research into the cultural history of music can significantly help our understnding of the evolution of English national identity. The authors study the evolving life of music in this period for the mainsprings of its meaning, power and function, reviewing its history and finally deconstructing its established menaings. By the turn of the century music had come to represent the privileged elite. At the same time, it was seen as a stronghold of national values, struggling to escape alien influences - above all that of Germany - and reflecting the reassuring 'Englishness' of middle-class life, its aesthetic qualities celebrated as national achievemnets and as criteria of a secure and civilised empire. Controversial in both its interpretation and methodology, The English Musical Renaissancecontinues to be the only book that isolates and identifies the intellectual, social and political assumptions which surrounded English music in the early part of the twentieth century, and the first to relate the 'renaissance' to its true cultural context. (publishers notes). Second Edition. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
