Title Northern Haida Songs
Description:1) Book. Part 1 is an ethnographic description of musical genres that situates Haida music in the context of the Northwest Coast. Part 2 presents a collection of 128 songs, fully transcribed and analyzed, representing some twenty types, ranging from traditional genres such as peace making and mourning songs to songs of personal expression composed during the modern period. Part 3 is a detailed musical and linguistic analysis of the songs presented in the second part. The integration of these two facets of song -music and language- is the particular goal of this study.
