Music has flourished in the Mormon church since its beginning. In this book-–now available in paperback--Michael Hicks examines the direction that music's growth has taken since 1830. He looks closely at topics including the denomination's first official hymnals; the views of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young on singing; the Mormon Tabernacle Choir; and the changing attitudes of church officialdom and laity toward popular and non-western music styles.

About the Author:

 
Michael Hicks is professor of music at Brigham Young University.  He is the author of Sixties Rock: Garage, Psychedelic, and Other Satisfactions, Henry Cowell, Bohemian, and many articles on music.  He is also a composer.
 

Review:

"[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."
