Exhibit To Display
American Music
Examples of the first-published
early American music, including
the song that later became the
popular "America," highlight the
current exhibit at the University's
Clements Library of Americana.
Selected from the library's per-
manent collection and described
by associate professor Allen P.
Britton of the University School
of Music, the exhibit includes es-
says and sermons on the topic of
church-singing by memory or by
book-a cause of violent contro-
versy in 1720.
John Cotton and Cotton Mather
were two of the well-known figures
of the time favoring the use of
"tune-books"and the teaching
of singing. Samples of their writ-
ing on the subject are on exhibi-
Also on display are examples of
the original "tune-books," a rarity
since most of them have been
worn out with use over the years.
One of the books carries the mark
of engraver Paul Revere, and ano-
ther includes the tune, "Chester,"
that became the basic of the fav-
orite marching song of Revolution-
ary War soldiers.
Tune-stealing is evidently not
a new practice, since one of the
books shows the simple melody
that was made from a theme ex-
cerpted from Handel's "Messiah."
The exhibit will be on display
through January from 9 a.m. to
noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. Mon-
day through Friday.
