Размер: 168 Mb
Lewis Winstock in this pioneer work investigates the real music of war. His book contains a long narrative, a superb collection of soldiers' songs - ribald, rousing, sentimental, satirical, over fifty of which are arranged for the piano. The use of instrumental music in war is also covered, old favourites are re-appraised, and some bizarre stories unfold. To find material for his book, the author has combed the memoirs of the soldiers of Cromwell, Wolfe, Marlborough, Wellington, Roberts and Buller, to name but a few. The result is a book of value to the historian and musician, and one which should delight the general reader. Together with the Argo recording inspired by the book.
