Music in Spain during the Eighteenth Century by Malcolm Boyd
Book DescriptionTraditional musicology has tended to see the Spanish eighteenth century as a period of decline, but this 1998 volume shows it to be rich in interest and achievement. Covering stage genres, orchestral and instrumental music and vocal music (both sacred and secular), it brings together the results of research on such topics as opera, musical instruments, the secular cantata and the villancico and challenges received ideas about how Italian and Austrian music of the period influenced (or was opposed by) Spanish composers and theorists. Two final chapters outline the presence of Spanish musical sources in the New World.

Are You Running with Me, Jesus?, Paperback (June 2006)» View all books by Malcolm Boyd
At once informal and literate, these prayers are also deeply personal...Their eloquence comes from the personal struggle they contain-a struggle to believe, to keep going, a spiritual contest that is agonized, courageous and not always won.
