"Discussion then turns to the music, with Sean Flanagan's research into the development of Tippett's musical borrowings. Suzanne Robinson and Rowena Harrison take a different approach, with an analysis of the intertextuality of the texts of A Child of Our Time and King Priam. Barbara Docherty examines the technical processes involved in the conjoining of words and music in The Heart's Assurance, while Arnold Whittall discusses music's ultimate transcendence.".
"Other facets of Tippett's career are explored by Lewis Foreman and Suzanne Cole. Foreman's essay details the composer's persistent courtship of the BBC, while Suzanne Cole discusses Tippett's time as Director of Music at Morley College. The volume concludes with an investigation by Meinhard Saremba of the reception of Tippett's music in Germany."--BOOK JACKET.
