Music in Spain during the Eighteenth Century by Malcolm Boyd

Book Description

Traditional 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.

Books By Author Malcolm Boyd

Music and the French Revolution by Malcolm Boyd Music and the French Revolution, Paperback (September 2008)

Rouget de Lisle's famous anthem, La marseillaise, admirably reflects the optimism of the early years of the French Revolution.

Bach by Malcolm Boyd Bach, Paperback (January 2007)

Aimed at students, scholars, and those interested in Baroque music, this work demonstrates how the circumstances of Bach's life helped to shape the music he wrote at various periods. It presents a picture of Bach, his music, and his posthumous reputation and influence.

Are You Running with Me, Jesus? by Malcolm Boyd Are You Running with Me, Jesus?, Paperback (June 2006)

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.
