Review quote

"Hicks's [book] is a model of scholarly research, and is broad in perspective and application. By placing Mormon music in the context of its social and ecclesiastical history, Hicks provides a new and penetrating view of American diversity and its interaction with European tradition." -- American Music "Anyone familiar with the politics of church or synagogue life, and with the passions and factionalisms that beset the use of music in communal worship, will feel entirely at home in this painstakingly researched, elegant history." -- Western Historical Quarterly "[Hicks] locates his subject in all its various contexts: Mormon history, American religious practices, the development of hymnody, and the history of popular music. He writes with both audacity and lucidity... All in all, this is a delightful contribution to interdisciplinary American studies." -- Pacific Historical Reviewshow more
