♥ Book Title : This Awareness of Beauty
☯ Full Synopsis : "This Awareness of Beauty is the first book to consider the orchestral and wind band music of Canadian composer Healey Willan, who was known primarily for his choral work. A succinct biography accompanies historical, analytical, and critical investigations of Willan’s instrumental music, asserting Willan’s seminal place in Canadian music and the significance of his orchestral and wind band music both nationally and internationally. Each composition is investigated in chronological order to illustrate the composer’s evolution as a creator of instrumental music from his early years in England to his later, and more notable, accomplishments in Canada. Willan’s orchestral music may be seen as both a reaction to and a stimulus for the significant improvement in Canadian orchestral performance during the 1930s and 40s, a factor in the creation of his large-scale compositions, including two symphonies and a piano concerto. Although much has been written about Willan, most of it has centred on his choral work, with biography and/or musicology as the frame of reference; this project considers his instrumental music in terms of performance, provides historical context for many of the works included, and corrects errors that have crept into the literature."Article| Keith W. Kinder| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Hearing Bach's Passions
☯ Full Synopsis : "Johann Sebastian Bach's two surviving passions--St. John and St. Matthew--are an essential part of the modern repertory, performed regularly both by professional ensembles and amateur groups. These large, complex pieces are well loved, but due to our distance from the original context in which they were performed, questions and problems emerge. Bach scholar Daniel Melamed examines the issues we encounter when we hear the passions performed today, and offers unique insight into Bach's passion settings. Rather than providing a movement-by-movement analysis, Melamed uses the Bach repertory to introduce readers to some of the intriguing issues in the study and performance of older music, and explores what it means to listen to this music today. For instance, Bach wrote the passions for a particular liturgical event at a specific time and place; we hear them hundreds of years later, often a world away and usually in concert performances. They were performed with vocal and instrumental forces deployed according to early 18th-century conceptions; we usually hear them now as the pinnacle of the choral/orchestral repertory, adapted to modern forces and conventions. In Bach's time, passion settings were revised, altered, and tampered with both by their composers and by other musicians who used them; today we tend to regard them as having fixed texts to be treated mith respect. Their music was sometimes recycled from other compositions or reused itself for other purposes; we have trouble imagining the familiar material of Bach's passion settings in any other guise. Melamed takes on these issues, exploring everything from the sources that transmit Bach's passion settings today to the issues surrounding performance practice (including the question of the size of Bach's ensemble). He delves into the passions as dramatic music, examines the problem of multiple versions of a work and the reconstruction of lost pieces, explores the other passions in Bach's performing repertory, and sifts through the puzzle of authorship. Highly accessible to the non-specialist, the book assumes no technical musical knowledge and does not rely on printed musical examples. Based on the most recent scholarship and using lucid prose, the book opens up the debates surrounding this repertory to music lovers, choral singers, church musicians, and students of Bach's music."Article| Daniel R. Melamed| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Fundamentals of Voice-Quality Engineering in Wireless Networks
☯ Full Synopsis : "Network operators are faced with the challenge of maximizing the quality of voice transmissions in wireless communications without impairing speech or data transmission. This book, first published in 2006, provides a comprehensive survey of voice quality algorithms, features, interactions and trade-offs at the device and system levels. The book elaborates on the root cause of impairments and ways for resolving them, as well as methodologies for measuring and quantifying voice quality before and after applying the remedies. A 'troubleshooting and case studies' chapter provides a useful approach to identifying and solving network impairments. Avoiding complex mathematics, the approach is based on real and sizable field experience supported by scientific and laboratory analysis. This title is suitable for practitioners in the wireless communications industry and graduate students in electrical engineering.

♥ Book Title : Listening to the Voice of the Market
☯ Full Synopsis : "Typically, when companies want to improve their products, they go to their customers. But why not reach further and explore the entire market? In this eye-opening book, Eric Reidenbach goes beyond the "voice of the customer" that so many consultants talk about to introduce you to a groundbreaking concept: the Voice of the Market. Like most business people in this global marketplace, you are searching for that edge that will help you increase market share. In this book, Dr. Reidenbach, teaches you how to identify, and capture the Voice of the Market and then use that data and a new understanding of it to make your organization market-focused. It is not about hijacking customers with one-time special pricing. Instead, it is about applying the proper tools and processes to move your organization from a production or sales orientation to a truly market-based focus. Listening to the Voice of the Market: How to Increase Market Share and Satisfy Current Customers is not for the lazy entrepreneur. Of course, interviewing internal customers is much simpler and probably less painful than probing the thoughts of those customers who have so far eluded you. But with this book as your guide, you will develop surveys that are more than skin deep, learn how to deliver them to the right people, collect information that is useful, and then turn that information into action steps that will help you cultivate customers who feel listened to, which is the first and most obvious step in building loyal relationships."Article| R. Eric Reidenbach| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : New Perspectives on Marc-Antoine Charpentier
☯ Full Synopsis : "The tercentenary of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's death in 2004 stimulated a surge of activity on the part of performers and scholars, confirming the modern assessment of Charpentier (1643-1704) as one of the most important and inventive composers of the French Baroque. The present book illustrates not only the sheer variety of research strands currently pursued, but also the way in which these strands frequently intertwine and generate the potential for future research. Between them, they examine facets of the composer's compositional language and process, aspects of his performance practice and notation, the contexts within which he worked, and the nature of his legacy. The appendix contains a transcription of the inventory of Charpentier's manuscripts prepared when their sale to the Royal Library was negotiated in 1726 - an invaluable research tool, as numerous chapters in the book demonstrate. The wide variety of topics covered here will appeal both to readers interested in Charpentier's music and to those with a broader interest in the music and culture of the French Baroque, including aspects of patronage, church and theatre. Far from treating his output in isolation, this book places it in the wider context alongside such composers as Lully, Lalande, Marais, François Couperin and Rameau; it also views the composer in relation to his Italian training. In the process, the under-examined question of influence - who influenced Charpentier? whom did he influence? - repeatedly comes to the fore."Article| Shirley Thompson| Statement ..."
