The Musical Setting of Eight Choruses for Typical Music Classes of Grades Four to Six

The Musical Setting of Eight Choruses for Typical Music Classes of Grades Four to Six

Date: September 1942
Creator: Hamilton, Mary Joe
Description: These eight were selected as typical lyrics to meet the diverse interests of students in the intermediate grades and to aid the teachers of those students in transmitting desired precepts and ideals. The poems are short and varied in verse form. The subject matter ranges from pirates and fairies to one's own conscience and Christmas; the moods, from whimsicality and nonsense to patriotism and reverence. The marked poetic devices influencing the choice of these particular lyrics are their rhythmical and alliterative quality; their rich, lively, yet correct language; their vivid imagery; their emotional appeal; and in a few cases their narrative quality.

Contemporary Women Poets of Texas

Contemporary Women Poets of Texas

Date: August 1942
Creator: Heatly, Katherine Stafford
Description: As a teacher of American literature in high school, I have become conscious of the importance of teaching students of that age level the lore and poetry of their native state. Poems of nature or local color in their own country will hold their interest when material from more distant points seems dull and uninteresting.

The Need for Co-Operation Among Independent Food Retailers of Denton, Texas

Date: June 1942

A Stylistic Analysis of Béla Bartók's "Mikrokosmos"

A Stylistic Analysis of Béla Bartók's "Mikrokosmos"

Date: June 1942
Creator: Daniel, Ralph Thomas
Description: Bela Bartok's art is a perfect microcosm of the art of the twentieth century. It is interwoven with the musical conceptions and techniques of the great Western European masters, without in any way obscuring the individuality, the national consciousness, and the personal style and originality of the composer's own musical language -- a language rooted in the glorious tradition of his people. In the six volumes of the Mikrokosmos, or "little world," Bartok has presented a series of progressively difficult pieces designed -- if not intentionally, at least effectively -- to introduce to the piano student a technical approach to piano playing in the modern idiom. Admittedly, the etude does not cover every pianistic technical problem. It clearly shows that Bartok fully appreciates the worth of the great wealth of piano literature, and does not prescribe his method as a "cure-all" for the technical problems of piano playing.
