CSS Librarian Rocks MPR

In another piece of quiet scholarship, CSS Librarian Brad Snelling puts to rest the age-old question that has been haunting the world’s music community for three quarters of a century – Did Igor Stravinsky spend his 70th birthday terrorizing the waiters at Duluth’s Flame restaurant because he couldn’t get a good bottle of wine in America’s “hinterlands”?

If you can handle the truth, check out the story on the MPR website.

Singing Community and Creation

Ethnomusicologist Dr. Elyse Carter Vosen explores the sounds, spiritual purposes, and social force of Avodat Lev (roughly translated as "work of the heart"), a recently developed form of intimate, imaginative, and contemplative Jewish prayer service made up of song, chant, meditation, and poetry, as an outgrowth of the Jewish farming movement.

No. 128

A Northern Water-Thrush, aka The Water-Wagtail, graciously allowed us to add him to the Library's Catalog of Birds this September when he was spotted by Librarian Brad Snelling. Of the water-thrush, it is written ... "This species always has a yellowish tinge to the under parts and the stripes beneath are narrow, but prominent. These Warblers are found in tangled underbrush near water. They have a habit of continually flirting their tails, thus giving them the local name of Water-Wagtail. Their call is a sharp metallic "chink ”; their song a loud , liquid “quit-quit-quit-que-quewe-u.” Breeds from the northern edge of the U. S. northwards; winters south of U. S."
