Summary "This book catalogs Charles Ives's borrowed sources and provides musical examples of their incorporation into his music in order to better understand his body of work. Since some of his models are not as familiar today as they were during the composer's youth and creative life - roughly one hundred twenty years ago - it is important to identify these sources before they are forgotten and their rediscovery is left to musicologists working in distant centuries." "Clayton W. Henderson helps the reader do just this by providing a source book for more than 250 melodies, texts, and titles of all the music from which Ives borrowed. The book includes indexes of composers and authors; first lines and refrains; and tunes by name. Additionally, a chapter listing musical incipits enables the reader to identify any tune Ives borrowed by pitch."--Jacket.
