With this collection of essays we celebrate Professor Alfred Mann's half century of research, music-making, and teaching in America, reflecting his two major areas of interest-performance practice and music theory. The work concludes with an autobiographical portrait of the dedicatee's remarkable life in music, that, thankfully, he was persuaded to contribute.
