For years Marie Bachmann thought of herself as the "good" daughter. She was the most loving to their mother, the most dedicated to their Amish way of life. But when a Mennonite farmhand, Gordon Martin, shows interest in her she can't help but be flattered--until her mother sends her off to Florida. While there, Marie begins spending time with bad-boy Eli Jacob, the bishop's son from back home. When Gordon shows up in Florida to volunteer in a homeless shelter, her life becomes even more complicated. At the same time her aunt begins telling her of a Civil War-era ancestor and the woman's uncommon bravery . . . a story that begins to work at Marie's heart. Marie hopes returning home may simplify life, but Eli soon follows. As Marie grapples with whether she should court Eli or leave the church for Gordon, the story of Annie Bachmann shines a light on what God has for Marie's future.

Excerpt from Number-Notation, or Singing Made Easy: A Simple System for the Use of Elementary (and Other) Vocalists, With an Equally Simple Scheme of Abbreviated Long-Hand Writing; Designed Also for the Use of the Same Persons to Enable Them to Save Space When Writing Words Under the Number-Notes I am not aware that he was ever accustomed or enabled to dispense with the use of notes scored in the usual manner (in his Hallelujah he merely figures the various notes according to the respective Keys); but in my System of number-notation I do altogether dispense with the established usage of notes, and score by numbers.

Most people would never participate in an athletic activity without taking some lessons to learn the basic skills to become successful. Singing is no different. The parts of the body primarily responsible for generating vocal sound are muscles capable of responding positively to physical training, and your voice will improve when they are strong, flexible, and working properly. Well-trained muscles for singing easily produce clear tones throughout the range, improve the overall stamina of the voice, and bring the entire instrument into balance. Do I need to be able to read music to learn this material? No, it is not necessary to be able to read music, although music for each vocal exercise is included in the book. Can you learn to sing on your own? This book focuses on developing new muscle memory through vocal exercise primarily in the medium and low ranges to create a solid vocal technique, and the exercises are pretty straightforward, and easy to learn and execute. Does this program apply to all styles of singing? Almost every singer can benefit from some kind of vocal training that improves their vocal tone and breathing. This course seeks to improve your vocal fitness so that you can have a better foundation on which to sing your own style. Once you create a strong, reliable vocal sound, you can add your style of music to it. How is the course any different than watching videos on the Internet? Many singers turn to the Internet to learn more about how to improve their singing, and there are many videos offering quick answers to vocal challenges. But what is often missing is a long-term, progressive program to teach vocal technique methodically. Training a singing voice takes time, and there are no shortcuts to a great technique. How long does it take to see improvement? When a singer commits to practicing this vocal technique correctly, with thoughtfulness, discipline and patience, the time they invest will pay them back many times over. The process of singing (and speaking) is an ingrained habit, so consistent and deliberate practicing of the vocal exercises is required to allow the muscles to learn new form and position. You can expect measurable improvement as long as you take this approach and practice consistently. The length of time it takes to improve a singing voice also depends on an individual's vocal goals. A singer training for an operatic or musical theater career will spend far more time perfecting their technique and building their voice than one who sings in a less vocally demanding style. Training a singing voice takes time, and there are no shortcuts to a great technique.

Every discipline tends to develop its own particular language and ways of communicating. This is true also about the various disciplines that talk about and describe the human voice - particularly as it relates to singing. The aim of this book is to bridge any gaps in communication, foster better understanding of the singing voice and encourage collaboration between those involved in performance, teaching, therapy and medicine. Because there is increasing interest in research in all these disciplines, creating a "common ground" for communication about the singing voice is essential for mutual understanding and for effective prevention and treatment of disorders in singers. One object for the artistic and scientific professions is to understand each other better by finding a vocabulary and terminology which they can share and use effectively. Difficulty in communication often arises when a singer or teacher of singing attempts to describe something sensory in nature by use of imagery and sign-language to non-singers, including the health and medical profes sions; and, in the same way, the use of obscure and sometimes frightening terminology by those in the medical sciences when offering explanations to singers. Teaching and simple language was and is needed from both sides. A number of advances are helping to create rapid change in bridging gaps in communication and in adding new information: 1. The formation of Associations for Performing Arts Medicine on a na tional and international scale are bringing new awareness to those who work with singers and other artists.
We know the legends: Arthur brought justice to a land that had known only cruelty and force; his father, Uther, carved a kingdom out of the chaos of the fallen Roman Empire; the sword Excalibur, drawn from stone by England's greatest king. But legends do not tell the whole tale. Legends do not tell of the despairing Roman soldiers, abandoned by their empire, faced with the choice of fleeing back to Rome, or struggling to create a last stronghold against the barbarian onslaughts from the north and east. Legends do not tell of Arthur's great-grandfather, Publius Varrus, the warrior who marked the boundaries of a reborn empire with his own shed blood; they do not tell of Publius's wife, Luceiia, British-born and Roman-raised, whose fierce beauty burned pale next to her passion for law and honor. With The Camulod Chronicles, Jack Whyte tells us what legend has forgotten: the history of blood and violence, passion and steel, out of which was forged a great sword, and a great nation. The Singing Sword continues the gripping epic begun in The Skystone: As the great night of the Dark Ages falls over Roman Britain, a lone man and woman fight to build a last stronghold of law and learning--a crude hill-fort, which one day, long after their deaths, will become a great city . . . known as Camelot.

(Applause Books). A terrific take on theatre singing by a master teacher. "David Craig knows more about singing in the musical theatre than anyone in this country which probably means the world. Time and time again his advice and training have resulted in actors moving from non-musical theatre into musicals with ease and expertise. Short of taking classes, this book is a must."
