Detroit: Monographs in Musicology/Studies in Music

ON BUNKER’S HILL
Essays in Honor of J. Bunker Clark (1931-2003)
Edited by William A. Everett and Paul R. Laird

This collection of twenty-eight essays pays tribute to the memory of J. Bunker Clark (1931-2003), noted author, teacher, and performer. A specialist in American music, history of keyboard music, and the Baroque organ, Professor Clark for thirty-eight years—virtually his entire career—was professor of musicology, and later emeritus professor, at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. During the last twenty-one years of his life he was also the book series editor at Harmonie Park Press. The contributors are friends, former students, and colleagues.

The volume is divided into seven subject areas that represent vital interests of the honoree: American Music, Keyboard Music, Early Music, Mozart and Beethoven, Music Education, Opera and Musical Theater, and Aesthetics and Historiography. A portrait of Bunker Clark as scholar, mentor, and editor, by William A. Everett, and personal reminiscences by Bruno Nettl, F. E. Kirby, and Marilyn Clark precede the essays.

About the Editors

William A. Everett is associate professor of musicology at the University of Missouri–Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance. Paul R. Laird is professor of musicology and director of the musicology division at the University of Kansas.

Johann Georg von Werdenstein (1542-1608): A Major Collector of Early Music Prints

 

Johann Georg von Werdenstein (1542-1608): A Major Collector of Early Music Prints

Author: Richard Charteris

This book fills a longstanding gap in our knowledge about one of the leading collectors of the late Renaissance, Johann Georg von Werdenstein, particularly in offering a detailed catalogue of the music in his collection. In 1592 Werdenstein sold more than 9,000 volumes from his library, including close to 500 music items, to the Duke of Bavaria. As the author demonstrates, most of that music can still be found in the Bavarian State Library in Munich. Chapters preceding the catalogue shed light on Werdenstein’s interests as a bibliophile and examine the contents, significance, and history of his music collection, the dimensions of which were unknown until now.

Convergences in Music & Art: A Bibliographic Study

Author:  George C. Schuetze
Publication: The interest that individual artists and composers have taken in each others skills and creations over the centuries has grown from a negligible amount of interest in the nineteenth century to a vast amount by the end of the twentieth century. This volume explores the history of this phenomenon of mutual influence, beginning in Chapter 1 with how music has inspired artists, and continuing, in Chapter 2, with how composers in turn have been inspired by the visual arts. Chapter 3 chronicles the so-called Doppelbegabungen or twin talents: artists who also have been active as musicians and composers who have extended their creative talents to the visual arts. Chapter 4 discusses portraits of musicians and composers over the centuries. (Original Price $57.50) Special Discount Price $46.00

4. Music symbols:

We have only a few musical symbols to use within the text; call for specifics. If your writing concerns specific musical pitches, use the following system (with italics): C' C c c' ( = “middle C”) c” c"'.

5. Double-spaced typescripts are generally preferred, to give room for changes and editor’s markings.

6. Titles of works:

a. Capitalization of foreign titles is sometimes a problem. Capitalize the first word of titles and proper names in all languages. In German, all nouns are capitalized, as in Denkmäler deutscher Tonkunst. In French, capitalize until the first noun, unless the first word is a conjunction, as A la venue de NoëlPremier Livre d’orgue, Le Boeuf sur le toit. All other words are lowercase. In Italian and Spanish, lowercase everything except the first word and proper names, as Le nozze di Figaro, Le nuove musiche, Los primeros Mexicanos. Native style in Romance languages is inconsistent; our goal, nonetheless, is to be consistent. For details, consult the Chicago Manual, 9.4.

b. In English, capitalize the first word and all other words except articles, conjunctions, and prepositions, and capitalize the first word of a subtitle, as An Application of the History of Ideas to Music: A New Appraisal. Reminder that the following are prepositions (hence, lowercase in titles): across, after among, between, during, since, through; the following are adverbs (uppercase): about, around, behind.

c. The manner of citing titles of musical compositions, as explained in the Chicago Manual, is favored. Generic titles, such as Sonata in E Major, op. 31, no. 4, and Symphony No. 3 in E Major, op. 46, are left in roman type. (Note the lowercase “op.”and “no.”) Shorter works such as songs are quoted, such as “I Left Thee Where I Found the Tree,” except that a logical method is to lowercase titles that are also first lines of text in English, such as “I left thee where I found the tree,” versus e.g. “Packington’s Pound,” which is not poetry text. Longer multi‑movement works are in italics, such as Die schöne MüllerinMessiah, The Rite of Spring, or Le Sacre du printemps.

d. Another method, however, is to italicize all titles, whatever the length. If in doubt, consult the Chicago Manual, 7.149‑53, or write us.

e. For newspapers, omit the article but include the city, as in New York Times. For journal titles, omit the article, as in Musical Quarterly, Musical TimesDiapason.

7. Newspapers, newsmagazines, and the Modern Language Association favor no final comma in a string of nouns, whereas the Chicago Manual and this Publisher prefer the final comma. Example: For health, we should eat apples, oranges, and grapes.

8. Reverse the order of the name of an author or composer only in an alphabetical listing. Otherwise, last name last. For dates, use the form 1781‑89 and 1803‑06 rather than 1781‑1789, 1803‑1806.

9. Manuscript production.

The author will receive advance notice prior to the start of production. At this time, the author may submit any changes or added copy necessary. Upon start of production, several pages of typeset copy will be sent for layout approval. Routing: author, book editor (for a multi‑author festschrift or collection), editor, typesetter. This routing will be repeated at least once more to double check corrections.

The author is responsible for proofreading typeset pages. Upon completion of typesetting, the author will receive a complete set of proofs for final approval before camera‑ready copy is sent to the printer. The proofs would include all corrections, title pages, placement of illustrations, contents, etc.

10. Music examples and/or illustrations.

The author will be responsible for furnishing either handset or typeset music examples. A sample should be submitted to the Publisher for quality and style approval. (If the author is not able to provide typeset music examples, contact the publisher.) Typeset musical examples may be furnished on floppy or zip drive, PC or Mac, as TIFF files or MS Word documents, 6½ inches wide, text in Times Roman; also provide a complete set of laser (or good quality) printouts.

The author will be responsible for furnishing original or reprinted photos to be included in the publication. As xerox copies tend to lose detail and appear dirty at times, they will not generally be approved. Please do not attach paper clips or write directly on the backs of the photos as these marks may reproduce in the final printing. Write all art descriptions on separate paper. Only glossy or high quality reproductions will be accepted. If slides are sent, the costs to create a glossy will be charged to the author. If photos are scanned, please scan at a minimum of 350 dpi and send as a TIFF file.

BE SURE to include any copyright permissions where necessary. Author is responsible for permission fees.

11. Biographical sketch.

Please send to the series editor, sometime during the typesetting phase, a biographical sketch about a paragraph long; this will be added as an end‑page or on back cover (author’s choice).

12. Index.

The author is responsible for the Index, to correspond with the typeset copy. In a festschrift, the author of each essay is asked to highlight the term(s) on the printout that should be considered for compilation of the Index.

13. Camera‑ready copy.

If the author wishes to propose camera‑ready copy, the copy is subject to layout approval. Running heads, pagination, chapter headings, and typefaces are all matters to be taken into consideration. The author would agree to proofread, revise, and correct the manuscript until it is ready for print.

14. Electronic files.

Text may be furnished on floppy or zip drive, PC or Mac, with footnotes or endnotes. Also please provide a printout of complete text, everything (including notes) double-spaced.

15. Send manuscript proposals to Dr. Susan Parisi, 2134 Music Building, University of Illinois, 1114 West Nevada Street, Urbana, IL61801 (Include list of contents, sample chapters, and short bio.)
