A Shaker Musical Legacy

Full Product Description

This fascinating book brings more than one hundred previously unpublished Shaker songs to the attention of scholars, performers, and aficionados of folk music. A Shaker Musical Legacy introduces Shaker songs and dances that Brother Ricardo Belden, the last male member of the Hancock Shakers, gave in original manuscript form to Jerry and Sybil Count, the first directors of the Shaker Village Camp. The Opdahls have selected from and transcribed this music and included dance directions to honor Brother Ricardo's hope that doing so would keep alive a part of the Shaker heritage. The songs are transcribed as modern musical scores for use by contemporary musicians and singers. Step-by-step instructions show how to perform the dances as the Shakers themselves danced them.

A Shaker Musical Legacy by Robert C. Opdahl; Viola E. Woodruff Opdahl was published by University Press of New England in July 2004. The ISBN for A Shaker Musical Legacy is 9781584653608.
