Western classical music is one of humanity´s most sublime artistic traditions. This musical language - encompassing genres from symphonic and instrumental music to choral works and opera - was created through the meeting of art and faith. The lineage of sacred works produced some of the greatest masterpieces in Western art and created the foundation of the Western musical canon. This phenomenal tradition includes works of genius such as: Josquin des Prez´s Ave Maria, gratia plena, an exquisite polyphonic motet Monteverdi´s Vespro della Beata Virgini, whose vocal pyrotechnics evoke the immensity of heaven Mozart´s Requiem, the final composition of the classical master Beginning with medieval chant, discover how its single musical line evolved into polyphony (music with multiple simultaneous melodies). You´ll also learn how the religious reformations of the 16th century compelled composers to create new musical genres and to make religious texts more intelligible. Additionally, observe how 17th-century composers blended sacred styles with genres such as opera, producing music of dramatic and unforgettable beauty. As a fascinating counterpoint to the music itself, you´ll explore the sociological background of its writing and performance. Sacred works were often commissioned by important clerical and aristocratic patrons, and composers were challenged to write music that was not only religiously edifying but also entertaining and publically successful. Over time, sacred music moved beyond church walls to become appreciated in secular venues as autonomous works of art. You´ll hear stunning musical excerpts covering over 1,200 years of music, from medieval chant to the massive sacred works of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Anthony Powell´s universally acclaimed epic encompasses a four-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as ´´brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times,´´ A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books ´´provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars´´ (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). The third volume follows Nick into army life and evokes London during the blitz. In the climactic final volume, England has won the war and must now count the losses. In the background of this second volume of A Dance to the Music of Time, the rumble of distant events in Germany and Spain presages the storm of World War II. In England, even as the whirl of marriages and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures gathers speed, men and women find themselves on the brink of fateful choices. Includes the novels: At Lady Molly´s, Casanova´s Chinese Restaurant, and The Kindly Ones.

Hailed by Time as ´´brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times,´´ A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books ´´provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars´´ (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). The third volume follows Nick into army life and evokes London during the blitz. In the climactic final volume, England has won the war and must now count the losses. In this third volume of A Dance to the Music of Time, we again meet Widmerpool, doggedly rising in rank; Jenkins, shifted from one dismal army post to another; Stringham, heroically emerging from alcoholism; Templer, still on his eternal sexual quest. Here, too, we are introduced to Pamela Flitton, one of the most beautiful and dangerous women in modern fiction. Wickedly barbed in its wit, uncanny in its seismographic recording of human emotions and social currents, this saga stands as an unsurpassed rendering of England´s finest yet most costly hour. Includes the novels: The Valley of Bones, The Soldier´s Art, and The Military Philosophers. As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Anthony Powell´s book, you´ll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview.
