Paris and the Musical Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
Paris and the Musical explores how the famous city has been portrayed on stage and screen, investigates why the city has been of such importance to the genre and tracks how it has developed as a trope over the 20th and 21st centuries. From global hits An American in Paris, Gigi, Les Misérables, Moulin Rouge! and The Phantom of the Opera to the less widely-known Bless the Bride, Can-Can, Irma la Douce and Marguerite, the French capital is a central character in an astounding number of Broadway, Hollywood and West End musicals. This collection of 18 essays combines cultural studies, sociology, musicology, art and adaptation theory, and gender studies to examine the envisioning and dramatisation of Paris, and its depiction as a place of romance, hedonism and libertinism or as ‘the capital of the arts’. The interdisciplinary nature of this collection renders it as a fascinating resource for a wide range of courses; it will be especially valuable for students and scholars of Musical Theatre and those interested in Theatre and Film History more generally.
Make Your Own Angel Blessing Scrolls Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
First used by the ancient Celts, angel scrolls were inscribed with runes or prayers that helped connect the physical world to the spirit realm. Make Your Own Angel Blessing Scrolls presents a wealth of projects that deliver angelic protection, healing, and blessings. Complete with beautiful photographs and simple instructions, this practical guide suggests sympathetic wording, describes how to invoke the blessing of the appropriate angel, and provides advice on infusing the scrolls with aromatic oils or herbs, and embellishing them with crystals and calligraphy. Display them for all to admire, and create a powerful conduit for angelic benefaction.
The Dead Sea scrolls calls it the conflict between the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness. We know it as a spiritual struggle between good and evil. Over the years, it has taken on many different identities, but the struggle remains the same. Which way should you go? There are no facts to set on, no escaping to the desert or a cave. The struggle is here. It is real, and we must deal with it. The Ben-Adon Scrolls tells the story of just such a struggle. It is the story of a people who are exposed to the tale of the first three years of the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, his crucifixion, his resurrection, and his ascension. Everyone has the same information, but the reaction varies according to their background, their conscience, and the dictates of their upbringing. Pontius Pilate put the question to the chief priests when he freed Barabbas. "What then should I do with Jesus called Christ?" This question has come down through the ages. It has been confronted by Paupers, kings, and every other class of humanity. This book will help you define or redefine your answer to this most important question. Some of the characters are fictitious and some are real, but they will all be affected by the conflict of their day. This conflict is not over. It is just as present today as it was some 2,000 years ago, and everyone confronted by it. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find.
The Oxford Handbook of the British Musical Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
The Oxford Handbook of the British Musical provides a comprehensive academic survey of British musical theatre offering both a historical account of the musical's development from 1728 and a range of in-depth critical analyses of the unique forms and features of British musicals, which explore the aesthetic values and sociocultural meanings of a tradition that initially gave rise to the American musical and later challenged its modern pre-eminence. After a consideration of how John Gay's The Beggar's Opera (1728) created a prototype for eighteenth-century ballad opera, the book focuses on the use of song in early nineteenth century theatre, followed by a sociocultural analysis of the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan; it then examines Edwardian and interwar musical comedies and revues as well as the impact of Rodgers and Hammerstein on the West End, before analysing the new forms of the postwar British musical from The Boy Friend (1953) to Oliver! (1960). One section of the book examines the contributions of key twentieth century figures including Noel Coward, Ivor Novello, Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber, director Joan Littlewood and producer Cameron Macintosh, while a number of essays discuss both mainstream and alternative musicals of the 1960s and 1970s and the influence of the pop industry on the creation of concept recordings such as Jesus Christ Superstar (1970) and Les Misérables (1980). There is a consideration of "jukebox" musicals such as Mamma Mia! (1999), while essays on overtly political shows such as Billy Elliot (2005) are complemented by those on experimental musicals like Jerry Springer: the Opera (2003) and London Road (2011) and on the burgeoning of Black and Asian British musicals in both the West End and subsidized venues. The Oxford Handbook of the British Musical demonstrates not only the unique qualities of British musical theatre but also the vitality and variety of British musicals today.

The Hindu Samskaras give expression to aspirations and ideals of the Hindus. They aim at securing the welfare of the performer and developing his personality. They go back to a hoary antiquity. The Vedas, the Brahmanas, the Grhyasutras, the Dharmasutras, the Smrtis and other treatises describe the rites, ceremonies and customs here and there but they do not present them in their historical evolution. The present work is a systematic study of all the Samskaras enjoined to be performed at the various epochs in the life of an individual from conception to crematorium. The author has cited parallels in other religions to show that they are universal and have a recognised place in ancient cultures and are still represented within the limits of modern religion. He has also shown that the sacramental beliefs and practices, far from being an irrational priestcraft, are consistent and logical and have practical utility and intention. This work discusses the source, meaning, number, purpose and the constituents of Samskaras grouped under five heads: prenatal, natal, educational, nuptial and funeral. Besides being a landmark in Hindu culture, it presents patterns of life based on high ethical, spiritual and humanistic values.
The Jewish Neo-Aramaic Dialect of Betanure (province of Dihok) Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
The Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialect of Betanure, which has hitherto remained unattested, is among the rarest and most seriously endangered varieties of Aramaic spoken at the present time. One of the most archaizing Jewish Neo-Aramaic varieties and a member of the Lishana Deni dialect cluster of northernmost Iraq, the dialect is currently spoken in Israel by no more than three dozen elderly people, of whom only a small minority are pro'cient speakers. The grammatical description of the dialect is synchronic, but it includes etymological and historical comments as well as several paragraphs dealing with diachronic processes. The large and variegated corpus of texts, based on narratives furnished by the last two superb speakers of the dialect, comprises, inter alia, descriptions of the village of Betanure and its history, the fauna and ?ora of the region, agriculture and other occupations of the Jewish villagers, customs and traditions, legends, folktales, anecdotes and amusing stories. The glossary is extensively etymological and offers much comparative data drawn from numerous Neo-Aramaic varieties, apart from recourse to Classical Aramaic lexical data.
