    schema:reviewBody ""Essential Song: Three Decades of Northern Cree Music, a study of subarctic Cree hunting songs, is the first detailed ethnomusicology of the northern Cree of Quebec and Manitoba. The result of more than two decades spent in the North learning from the Cree, Lynn Whidden's account discusses the tradition of the hunting songs, their meanings and origins, and their importance to the hunt. She examines women's songs, and traces the impact of social change - including the introduction of hymns, gospel tunes, and country music - on the song traditions of these communities." "This book also explores the introduction of the powwow song into the subarctic and the Cree's struggle to maintain their Aboriginal heritage - to find a kind of song that, like the hunting songs, can serve as a spiritual guide and force." "Including profiles of the hunters and their songs and accompanied by an original CD of more than fifty Cree hunting songs, Essential Song makes an important contribution to ethnomusicology, social history, and Aboriginal studies."--Jacket." ;
