Handel called Britain ´the ringing isle´ because when he moved to London, he heard bells ringing everywhere: great bells in church towers, and handbells in some of the first private houses he visited. The sound of people ´ringing the changes´ is a peculiarly British sound of celebration, and it seems a good starting point for a piece celebrating British musical life. Within The Ringing Isle, Dove incorporates some traditional change-ringing patterns, from ´Grandsire Doubles´, ´Oxford Treble Bob Minor´ and his own version of ´Plain Bob Major´. Handel´s phrase also conjures up an image of a magical island, and so this is how Dove envisaged how it must have been to approach Britain from an ocean voyage.
Legal systems like to think of themselves as impartial and fair, dispensing the objective morality of Justice. But, from time to time, a court of law can be as political, prejudiced, and biased as any other arm of the State. The classic instance is the story of the trials of Alfred Dreyfus. In December 1894 a French military tribunal found Alfred Dreyfus guilty of high treason. Dreyfus was a Jew; the War Office was determined that at all costs the honour and good name of the Army must be upheld; and both left and right in the French Parliament used the convulsions of the case for what they believed to be their own advantage. The original verdict affected the Army, the Church, the Judiciary, and the State over the following 12 years. Even now the case provokes arguments of fierce intensity. Guy Chapman´s classic exposition of the long drawn-out trials has been out of print for many years and this present thorough revision incorporates the findings of recent scholarship; it is compellingly readable and unapproachably authoritative. The questions still remain - how far were the Dreyfus Trials the product of a conscious conspiracy, how far an unconscious conspiracy of silence, and how far did ´justice´ prevail? Guy Chapman (1889-1972) was born in London and educated at Oxford where he trained to be a lawyer. When war was declared he joined the Royal Fusiliers and served on the Western Front, surviving a mustard gas attack. Chapman also served in World War II. Following the First World War, he worked as an editor for several publishing houses where he met his wife, writer Storm Jameson before becoming Professor of Modern History, University of Leeds, 1945-53, and later a visiting Professor, University of Pittsburgh, 1948-9. Having trained as a lawyer, Chapman´s chief literary works from the 1930s onwards analyzed French political system and modern French history, and his time in war. 1. Language: English.

Pain, suffering, and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn´t have to be this way. Mindfulness for Health reveals a set of simple practices that you can incorporate into daily life to relieve chronic pain, suffering and stress. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation is at least as effective as the most commonly prescribed painkillers and can be more powerful than morphine. Mindfulness can also significantly reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness. Mindfulness for Health is based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her cope with the severe pain of a spinal injury. The Breathworks Centre founded by Vidyamala - and its affiliates around the world - have helped thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Its pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat Zinn, and Professor Lance McCraken of King´s College London. The eight week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. You´ll be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving behind a deep-seated love of life. This title includes eight guided meditations which appear throughout the audio, as well as being collected at the end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vidyamala Burch.

Instrument : mixed choir (SATB) and orchestraType : vocal/piano scoreNombre de Pages : 110In recent years Karl Jenkins has become one of the world´s best-selling living composers. He continues to conduct his epic Adiemus Live Concerts with distinguished orchestras including the London Philharmonic, featuring in Festivals and concerts in Britain and abroad; and his moving choral work The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace is now firmly lodged as a concert favourite. This new work builds on the style which the British public have come to know and adore. Jenkins has set the usual Latin movements of the requiem mass, but, in keeping with his usual trait of drawing from other cultures, he has also set five Japanese haiku â€˜deathâ€™ poems. Such poems are usually to do with nature, have a single idea, and consist of seventeen syllables divided 5-7-5 over three lines. As one can see from the text, the Japanese view natureâ€™s water cycle (precipitation) as being synonymous with life. The Western and Eastern texts are combined in two of the haiku movements, Having Seen The Moon and Farewell, which incorporate the Benedictus and the Agnus Dei respectively. Both are intoned by male voices in a monastic style as a counterpoint to the Japanese text sung by females. The instrumentation of these haiku settings includes the ancient Japanese wind instrument, the shakuhachi. Elsewhere, as usual, Jenkins has used some ethnic drums (e.g. Arabic darabuca, Japanese daiko, frame drums) and even a hip-hop rhythm in the Dies Irae!Content : Introit & Kyrie - Dies irae - The snow of yesterday (Gozan) - Rex tremendae - Confutatis - From deep in my heart (Issho) - Lacrimosa - Now as a spirit (Hokusai) - Pie Jesu - Having seen the moon - Lux aeterna - Farewell (Banzan) - Dona eis pacem - In paradisum
From a Senior Editor and columnist of Cracked.com comes a funny and frightening follow-up to The Unnoticeables, an urban fantasy with horror elements in the vein of David Wong´s John Dies at the End Following on the heels of Robert Brockway´s comedic horror novel The Unnoticeables, The Empty Ones reveals the next chapter in the lives of a few misfits attempting to fight back against the mysterious Unnoticeables. The Empty Ones follows Carey and Randall to London where they go to rescue Gus and fight more of these mysterious angel-like creatures, and stumble on a powerful and unexpected ally. Meanwhile, Kaitlyn, who was very nearly beat when last we saw her, continues her fight into the desert of Mexico and the Southwest US, seeking the mysterious gear cult. Once there, she discovers what the gear cult is really up to: trying to ´´pin´´ the angels to Earth, focus their attention here, and get as much of humanity as possible ´´solved´´ - which, in their minds, is akin to being saved - and in the process discovers something incredible about herself. With a snarled lip, The Empty Ones incorporates everything that made The Unnoticeables incredible, but like any good punk band, when you don´t think they can get any louder, they somehow turn it up a notch. It´s terrifying and hilarious, visceral and insane, chaotic and beautiful. 1. Language: English.

If the wire needed for anew voice coil isn´t available, JBL develops it. If a tool or technology doesn´texist, JBL invents it. This uncompromising commitment to the goal drivesthe development of every new product and technology that bears the JBLlogo. In recent years, audio engineers have developed new work methods andhave migrated to new work environments. Responding to the call for greateraccuracy and dynamic range in this new breed of music and post productionwork spaces, JBL engineers developed the new M2 Master Reference Monitor.Breaking free of the conventional, the M2 incorporates numerous patentedinnovations to deliver unprecedented performance and a trulyremarkable listening experience. Conceived and purposebuilt for modern recording and post production, theM2 was created so you can exercise yourown meticulous attention to detailThe Solution: The M2 Master Reference MonitorAddressing the growing need for high dynamic range and reference-monitor accuracy in a broad range of studios,JBL has developed the M2 Master Reference Monitor: a free-standing, 2-way system that can be placed in anyenvironment to provide an exceptionally accurate monitoring experience.

At the heart of the system, JBL´s patented D2 high frequency and 2216Nd low frequency transducersare the engines that make this possible. Using a revolutionary design, the D2 produces smooth, extended highfrequency response with ultra-low distortion whether listening at very high or subtle levels. Using patentedtechnology, the remarkable 2216Nd woofer offers deep bass extension and very low power compression,even at its full-rated output. In spite of the M2´s minimal footprint, its exceptional low frequency responseeliminates the need for a subwoofer. Unit price
