The winner of seven Tonys, seven Grammys, an Oscar, and a Pulitzer Prize, Sondheim has become synonymous with the best in musical theater. ´´Finishing the Hat´´ not only collects his lyrics for the first time, but provides a rare, personal look into his extraordinary shows and life. Stephen Sondheim has won seven Tonys, an Academy Award, seven Grammys, a Pulitzer Prize and the Kennedy Center Honors. His career has spanned more than half a century, his lyrics have become synonymous with musical theater and popular culture, and in Finishing the Hat?titled after perhaps his most autobiographical song, from Sunday in the Park with George?Sondheim has not only collected his lyrics for the first time, he is giving readers a rare personal look into his life as well as his remarkable productions. Along with the lyrics for all of his musicals from 1954 to 1981?including West Side Story, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd?Sondheim treats us to never-before-published songs from each show, songs that were cut or discarded before seeing the light of day. He discusses his relationship with his mentor, Oscar Hammerstein II, and his collaborations with extraordinary talents such as Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Ethel Merman, Richard Rodgers, Angela Lansbury, Harold Prince and a panoply of others. The anecdotes?filled with history, pointed observations and intimate details?transport us back to a time when theater was a major pillar of American culture. Best of all, Sondheim appraises his work and dissects his lyrics, as well as those of others, offering unparalleled insights into songwriting that will be studied by fans and aspiring songwriters for years to come. Accompanying Sondheim´s sparkling writing are behind-the-scenes photographs from each production, along with handwritten music and lyrics from the songwriter´s personal collection. Penetrating and surprising, poignant, funny and sometimes provocative, Finishing the Hat is not only an informative look at the art and craft of lyric writing, it is a history of the theater that belongs on the same literary shelf as Moss Hart´s Act One and Arthur Miller´s Timebends. It is also a book that will leave you humming the final bars of Merrily We Roll Along, while eagerly anticipating the next volume, which begins with the opening lines of Sunday in the Park with George.
Hastings´s Church Music, or Musical Compositions for Devotional Use, in Choirs, Congregations, Families, and Religious Circles:Collected From Various Publications and Carefully Revised (Classic Reprint) Thomas Hastings
Over the course of the last 10 years, Frank Skinner has toured sell-out stand-up shows, hosted countless TV shows and an award-winning radio programme, written two well-received volumes of memoir, as well as recording a couple of pop songs and learning to play the ukulele. He has been a busy man. Yet, for the last two years, he has also managed to squeeze in a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down every week and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result. Alighting on such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, Mike Read’s musical of Oscar Wilde, fat pop stars, Serbian breakfast banter, the pleasures of air-guitar, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is a thought-provoking, wide-reaching, hilarious and self-deprecating collection - which also includes the first two chapters from his unpublished novel - from one of our funniest, quickest and most beloved comedians. 1.

They were the kind of musical notes men and woman once swayed to - even worshiped to - or so Jasper had told him, ground from an instrument called an ´´organ”, which had once been common, or so he’d said but had vanished from the face of the world. So, too, were there cymbals, which echoed throughout the crew compartment of the war wagon like tinsel - if tinsel could be said to have a sound - and mingled with the steely whispers of their muskets and tanks and other gear as the truck rocked and their harnesses held them fast. ´´When a maaan loves a woman,” sang a hearty and soulful voice both inside and outside the compartment, and Jeremiah knew they were close, else the driver wouldn’t have cued the music, and when he scanned the other witch doctors, strapped in six to a bench in the wagon’s cramped confines, he knew they knew it too. What was more, he knew that however fearsome they looked in their black jumpsuits and white flame-retardant vests, their goggled respirators, their buckled hats, they were frightened, too. But then the wagon ground to a halt, and there was no time to feel anything, much less fear, as Jeremiah unbuckled and piled out with the others. And yet, as he paused momentarily to take in the building - a ramshackle six-story brownstone that looked as though it had been built before the Betrayal, much less the Pogrom - a strange thing happened. He thought he heard a voice, not from without but entirely from within - a woman’s voice, a witch’s voice. And it said to him, as faintly as the cymbals at the start of the music, ´´Why have you come for us, witch doctor?´´ And he found himself scanning the illuminated windows of the brownstone as if someone had perhaps shouted to him (rather than reaching directly into his mind) and saw behind one of the uppermost panes a figure so small and motionless that he might have thought it a piece of furniture, a lamp, perhaps, had it not slid to one side and vanished. 1.
