New Notes for July

July 29, 2011

The Leading Note’s music collection is constantly expanding as we welcome new titles to our shelves every month.  We identify any books that are new to the shop with a yellow “NEW” tag, so they are easy to pick out from amongst our regular stock.  Every month we will highlight the most interesting new items we have received - please check them out on our website or the next time you are in the shop!

  • A pop-style arrangement of O Canada by Robert Benedict for piano duet.
  • Sebastian Lee’s First Steps for One or Two Cellos, Op. 101 which includes selected studies for the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) Cello exams, Grades 1-4.
  • Both piano and vocal selections by British composer John Ireland.
  • For all the jazz guitarists out there, we’ve brought in a book of classic solos of Django Reinhardt.
  • A Christmas choral work by Argentine composer Ariel Ramirez, Navidad Nuestra.  Ramirez’ Misa Criolla has been performed by several groups in Ottawa over the past few years.
  • Zav RT’s Fiddleworks, a progressive series of three volumes for beginning violinists interested in the fiddle tradition.
  • A Complete book is now available in Glory St-Germain’s Ultimate Music Theory series to help theory students prepare for all three levels of the RCM rudiments exams.
  • For church musicians looking for more last verses, we’ve found another volume of 200 Varied Hymn Tune Harmonies by Noel Rawsthorne.
  • A new edition of Samuel Barber songs, released in celebration of his 100th birthday.  This collection of 65 Songs includes the complete contents of the formerly published Collected Songs and Ten Early Songs, plus many previously unpublished early songs and facsimiles of selected manuscripts (including a composition written by a teenaged Barber while at summer camp!).
  • And finally, for the adventurous ethnomusicologists out there, The Maqam Book, a systematic look at the system of scales and modes used in Arab music.
