Summary "During the years between the onset of the Civil War and the armistice of World War I music in American life flourished as never before. Some American musicians of the era remained mindful of their European counterparts while others concentrated just as enthusiastically on expanding local traditions. Their achievements were many, as well as influential on later developments." "For this volume Dr. Bill F. Faucett has selected a cogent sampling of the published commentary of participants and observers responding to such developments. His anthology offers readers a fresh opportunity to reconsider a formative era in American music history. No other comparable work on the subject exists."--BOOK JACKET.
