Part two offers an ethnomusicological analysis of the role & function of a Ukrainian cantor, an investigation of cantors & godparents as saints & sinners in Ukrainian folklore, and studies of cantors in Ottawa's Jewish community and the role of cantor Albert Mahon in the Anglican plainsong revival. Part three contains documentary material in the form of two excerpts from authoritative handbooks that offer directives for cantors to follow

Canadian craft and museum practice, 1900-1950 by Sandra Flood ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This research looks at the relationship between the craft community, as an integral part of Canadian culture, and the museum community from 1900 to 1950. The relationship is examined primarily in terms of the recognition of craft by museums as arbiters of cultural value and custodians of national material culture. Contemporary publications about craft are analyzed for location, authorship, geographical & craft media coverage, and key issues in craft discourse. The composition & activities of a variety of craft organizations are documented along with their interactions with related organizations & government departments, the subsequent involvement of governments in craft marketing & education, and the consequences for the development & perception of craft. A survey of formal craft education through selected institutions & their programs, and the activities of studio craftspeople as a self-defined sub-group, is also presented. Community-embedded handicraft practices are contrasted with the more constricted activity of the museum community through an account of the development of Canadian museums and of craft collecting by museums & by craft organizations in relation to museums
Icelandic-Canadian popular verse by Magnús Einarsson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The third book in a series on Icelandic-Canadian folk literature, Icelandic-Canadian Popular Verse features some 274 verses and poems (originals and translations) that reflect Icelandic immigrant life on the Prairies." "Composed in Canada, these verses and poems convey the thoughts and experiences of Icelandic immigrants (who began arriving in Canada in the early 1870s) and their descendants. Occasional verses have been a part of Icelandic written and oral tradition for centuries. They can be used in any number of ways to express love, philosophy of life, censure, or simply delight in the joys of daily living. As such, these verses are a uniquely revealing source of information about the emotional and intellectual life of Icelandic immigrants in Canada." "In addition, the book includes 20 photographs, an index of loanwords and phrases, and an index to poets' and storytellers' repertoires, as well as biographical information."--Jacket
