<B>At Home in Harmony </B><I> Bringing Families and Communities Together in Song</I>, CHITTENDEN, MEG
1 At Home in Harmony Bringing Families and Communities Together in Song
CHITTENDEN, MEG
2017 
Includes a CD!
Ever wonder when you see books from Waldorf Publications with titles like, Sing through the Day and Let’s Sing and Play, what you can do with books like these when you cannot carry a tune and you hope that your kindergarten child will learn enough in school to leave you out of singing?
Well, wonder no longer! Author Meg Chittenden has assembled a book filled with wonderful songs and descriptions on how to sing them, along with a CD of the songs with a link to a phrase-by-phrase listening loop on her web site to learn as methodically needed.
At Home in Harmony is a beautiful book, also illustrated by Meg, with a warm-hearted, “don’t-worry-about-it-just-keep-singing” soul to it. She knows how uncomfortable it can be if you feel as if you can’t sing. And she knows too how comforting a song can uplift or offer celebration for a day, a festival, a bedtime, a meal, or even a moment.
Be not afraid! Make sure you get this book as it is as extraordinary as its author. We all will sing along after all!

<B>Cosmic Music </B><I> Musical Keys to the Interpretation of Reality</I>, GODWIN, JOSCELYN
3 Cosmic Music Musical Keys to the Interpretation of Reality
GODWIN, JOSCELYN
089281070X / 9780892810703 1989 Paperback 
Illustrations
The idea that the universe is created out of sound or music (and therefore is music) is a very ancient one. In this book, Joscelyn Godwin brings together three contemporary German thinkers who exemplify this tradition in its modern variants: Marius Schneider, Rudolf Haase, and Hans Erhard Lauer. The selections draw on ancient Indian sources and mythology; Kepler's Platonic vision of a musical, geometric universe; and the evolution of the tone systems of music. While every music lover senses the power and truth that reside in music, very few actually approach music as a path to cosmic knowledge. Godwin takes literally Beethoven's assertion that "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom or philosophy." Godwin writes, ." . .to penetrate the mysteries of music is to prepare for initiation into those fathomless mysteries of man and cosmos."

<B>Expanding Tonal Awareness </B><I> A Musical Exploration of the Evolution of Consciousness - from Ancient Tone Systems to New Tonalities - Guided by the Monochord</I>, RULAND, HEINER
5 Expanding Tonal Awareness A Musical Exploration of the Evolution of Consciousness - from Ancient Tone Systems to New Tonalities - Guided by the Monochord
RULAND, HEINER
1855843951 / 9781855843950 
Heiner Ruland charts a practical path towards a deepened musical understanding, illuminating the panorama of humanity’s musical past. Indicating what may happen – and needs to happen – to music in the immediate and more distant future, the implications of this book for composition, musical education and therapy are immense.
The author shows how the fundamental elements of music embody distinctive modes of consciousness. He examines the musical systems of ancient humanity and goes on to draw a vivid picture of our contemporary musical situation. This seminal work is more than a theoretical treatise on the nature of music, but a book to be understood and experienced through musical practice. With the help of the monochord, the reader, with a minimum of technique, is able to explore new and unfamiliar musical realms.
‘Rudolf Steiner believed that an expansion of our tone-system was a necessity... In this book of Ruland’s, we have for the first time an account that is penetrating enough and of sufficiently large scope to enable us to understand why.’ - Jürgen Schriefer
HEINER RULAND, born in 1934, studied music and comparative music in Freiburg. Having discovered ancient intervals and scales and the twelve-tone musical system, he began to compose. He taught music at the Benefeld Rudolf Steiner School before becoming a therapist and developing his own form of music therapy, which he practised at Klinik Oeschelbronn. Various musical instruments have been developed according to his suggestions. Since 2001, he has taught as a guest lecturer in music history at the Music Seminar in Hamburg.

<B>Intervals, Scales, Tones and the Concert Pitch C = 128 HZ </B><I> </I>, RENOLD, MARIA
6 Intervals, Scales, Tones and the Concert Pitch C = 128 HZ
RENOLD, MARIA
1906999732 / 9781906999735 2004 Paperback 
illustrations
Why is it that certain intervals, scales and tones sound genuine and others false? Is the modern person able to experience a qualitative difference in a tone's pitch? If so, what are the implications for modern concert pitch and how instruments of fixed tuning are tuned?
Maria Renold tackles these and many other questions, providing a wealth of scientific data. Her pioneering work is the result of a lifetime's research into Western music's Classical Greek origins, as well as a search for new developments in modern times. She strives to deepen musical understanding through Rudolf Steiner's spiritual-scientific research, and she also elucidates many of Steiner's often puzzling statements about music.
The results of her work include the following discoveries: that the octave has two sizes (a 'genuine' sounding octave is bigger than the 'perfect' octave); that there are three sizes of 'perfect' fifths; that an underlying 'form principle' for all scales can be found; and, most importantly, the discovery of a method of tuning the piano which is more satisfactory than equal temperament. She also gives foundation to some of Rudolf Steiner's statements such as: 'c is always prime' and 'c = 128 Hz = Sun'.
MARIA RENOLD (1917-2003) spent her childhood in the United States, where her parents emigrated to found a eurythmy school in New York. She studied eurythmy and later violin and viola and toured with the Bush Chamber Orchestra and the Bush String Quartet. One of Maria Renold's deeply-felt questions concerned the correct concert pitch. When she heard of Rudolf Steiner's concert pitch suggestion of c = 128 Hz she put it into practice immediately, and experimented with it over many years in America and Europe. She also discovered a new method of tuning the piano, closer to the tuning of stringed instruments, arriving at the concert pitch of a1 = 432 Hz. First published in German in 1985, her book has become a modern classic of musical research.

<B>Music </B><I> Mystery, Art and the Human Being</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF;  TRANS. M. BARTON; EDITED WITH INTRO. BY M. KURTZ
10 Music Mystery, Art and the Human Being
STEINER, RUDOLF; TRANS. M. BARTON; EDITED WITH INTRO. BY M. KURTZ
1855845261 / 9781855845268 
‘Our neurosensory system is inwardly configured music, and we experience music as an artistic quality to the degree that a piece of music is in tune with the mystery of our own musical structure.’ – Rudolf Steiner

What is music? Rudolf Steiner regards the essence of music as something spiritual, inaudible to the senses. The world of tones, borne on the vibrations of air, is not the essential element. ‘The true nature of music, the spiritual element in music’, he says, ‘is found between the tones, lies in the intervals as an inaudible quality.’

Rudolf Steiner spoke repeatedly about music as something inherent both in the cosmos and the human being. It played an important role in many forms of ritual and worship, and people once perceived a link between music and the world of stars, which was seen as the dwelling place of the gods. Nowadays our view of music is divorced from such religious outlooks, but research repeatedly demonstrates the profound effect it continues to have on us.

In this unique anthology of texts, compiled with a commentary and notes by Michael Kurtz, Steiner describes the realm of the spiritually-resonating harmonies of the spheres and our intrinsic connection to this cosmic music. He also explores the phenomenon of musical listening and experience, as well as Goethe’s approach to music.

<B>Rests and Repetition in Music </B><I> </I>, CHRISTOPH, PETER,  STOTT, ALAN
13 Rests and Repetition in Music
CHRISTOPH, PETER, STOTT, ALAN
1869981456 / 9781869981457 1992 Paperback 
80mus.exs.
Having taught at the Hanover Waldorf School for 22 years, Christoph Peter became Director of Music at the Stuttgart Teacher's Seminary. He was composer, promoter, performer and author whose magnum opus, Die Sprache der Musik in Mozarts "Zauberflöte", was published (in German) by Verlag Freies Geistesleben in 1983. This massive volume explores the intricacies of Mozart's Magic Flute. Rests and Repetitions in Music was written before the major work, reflecting the author's more general exploration of these phenomena. For eurythmists, the import of the 'rest', the absence of sound, and its position between and relationships to the sounds before and after is fundamental. So, too, is the effect of repetition. This book is a useful analytical tool for those training, or already working, as eurythmists.

14 Singing and the Etheric Tone Gracia Ricardos approach based on her work with Rudolf Steiner. Gracia Ricardo's Approach to Singing Based on Her Work with Rudolf Steiner
DEIGHTON, HILDA, ETC., PALERMO, GINA, WINTER, DINA
0880103566 / 9780880103565 2006 Paperback 
This book introduces a practical approach to freer and more joyful singing. Drawing its strength and inspiration from Gracia Ricardo's work with Rudolf Steiner, it presents anyone who wishes to sing, as well as professional singers, with a spiritual alternative to the mechanical and physical methods of voice training usually available today. The Ricardo method is based on the word. The first chapter deals with the onset of the tone, its focus, the separation of word and tone, and listening for the word. The relation between vowels, consonants, words, and phrases is also dealt with. The second chapter goes on to consider the voice, how to build and extend its range. The third chapter develops the idea of blending the vocal registers, placement, embellishments, resonance, and diction. Professional tips follow: on choosing a program, stage fright, mood, and presence. Esoteric aspects of music and singing are then dealt with in a special section. "It is important that we sing. It is especially important for our children to sing. Singing frees the soul, makes it flexible, and helps it soar and expand. Singing lets the sun in-gives warmth to our lives and wings to our spirit.
Those who sing know this. To sing at all requires a certain degree of freedom. Learning to sing in the way described here means finding ever greater degrees of freedom in ourselves. When we sing with this freedom, we find ourselves anew. When we sing with others, we find one another. Singing music that lifts our souls in freedom, we open ourselves to worlds that fructify the spirit in us. We make our souls flexible and receptive to spiritual worlds-open to what the spiritual worlds can tell us." - Dina Soresi Winter

18 Vikings, Gods and Giants Resource Pack Understanding the Nine-Year Change
TATUM, DIANE
Comb-bound 
Includes a DVD and a CD
A unique resource for teachers of Class IV in Steiner schools, this resource pack is intended as a manual for developing what Diane Tatum calls "Pedagogical Imagination" . Far more than a collection of stories and songs, it includes many recommendations and techniques for self-development on the part of the teacher in order to engage fully with both the subject matter and the developmental challenges of the child going through the nine-year-old transition.

The accompanying DVD and CD are simply magical - Diane recommends viewing the DVd first to get an overview of the material, and getting to know the songs and verses from the CD, before going to the manual.

Diane Tatum, the creator of the hugely popular Magic Garden CD of children's songs, has been a Eurythmy teacher at Kamaroi School in Sydney for 17 years and has tutored in Choreography, Child Observation and Inner Development as well as Eurythmy in the Advanced Diploma and the Curriculum Intensives for many years.
