It is said that the original draft of the novel was written extremely quickly. Lloyd Osbourne, Stevenson's stepson, remembers; "I don't believe that there was ever such a literary feat before as the writing of Dr Jekyll. I remember the first reading as if it were yesterday. Louis came downstairs in a fever; read nearly half the book aloud; and then, while we were still gasping, he was away again, and busy writing. I doubt if the first draft took so long as three days" This sounds almost as if Stevenson was gripped by a fever, a compulsion, just as Jekyll was in the novel.

If you want to know about the Sixties, play the music of The Beatles (Aaron Copland) How accurate is this statement in relation to the development of popular music in Britain?
They were later described as "the four most famous and musical men on earth, the best dressed and on a good day the most captivating people anyone can remember" (Taylor, n.d.) and "witty, irreverent, young and lovable moptops" (p86, Frontani, 2007). This look attracted thousands of young men and women, many of whom would copy them in an attempt to idolise this new band. It is therefore possible that the visual change in the sixties was indeed down to The Beatles and they were "a catalyst for much of the change that occurred during the 1960s" (p231, Frontani, 2007).

Although it may have many copies, or different types, the works of music themselves are cannot be bought or sold as literally as diamonds, pearls, and works of painting and sculpture; instead, performance rights, reproduction rights, or copyrights of the works of music may be sold. Similarly, they also cannot be destroyed2. The only things which can be destructed are their copies or any other substantial things unless it can be clear out from memories. It is an obvious view that the works of music are physical objects.

ning �ks tavaarvustus (Bj�rki Vespertine), mis tegelikult ei erine mahult m�nest n�dala plaadi retsensioonist. Kuiv�rd ei ole teada �htegi universaalset, igasse konteksti sobivat definitsiooni popmuusika kohta, tuleb siinkohal lahti m�testada, mida k�esolevas uurimuses popmuusikana k�sitletakse. Popmuusika all m�istan teatud populaarmuusikastiile (pop-rock ja paljud h�briidsed stiilid), mis on algselt p�rit peamiselt USA ja Suurbritannia 1950. aastate kultuurimaastikult. L��nemaailmas on popmuusika alates 20. sajandi teisest poolest muutunud domineerivaks.1 Kuna pop ja rock on t�naseks sulandunud, on ka pop- ja rockkriitika piir muutunud �hmaseks. Seep�rast l�htub proseminarit�� pop/rockmuusikat �hendavast kriitikat��bist, pidamata oluliseks seda kriitikat��pi t�histavat m�istet. Meetodil, mille abil plaadiarvustusi anal��sin, on palju �hist kvalitatiivse sisuanal��siga.2 Anal��simeetodi, millest on t�psemalt kirjutatud peat�kis 2.3., koostamisel olen kasutanud veel Simon Frithi ja Pekka Oeschi, aga ka Tiit Hennoste ja Janet M.

However the brain can also pickup the location of individual sounds among many other sounds, like picking exactly where different voices are originating from in a crowd. This ability to quickly and instinctively locate sounds is a very important one in early human survival, and it may well have developed from the survival of the fittest area of evolution. It is quite easy to see that if somebody could hear exactly where the sounds of animals which they wanted to catch were coming from, they would be able to catch more of them and thus have more food to live on.

Hildegard traveled throughout southern Germany and into Switzerland and as far as Paris, preaching. Her sermons deeply moved people, and she was asked to provide written copies. In the last year of her life, she was briefly in trouble because she provided Christian burial for a young man who had been excommunicated. Her defense was that he had repented on his deathbed, and received the sacraments. Her convent was subjected to an interdict, but she protested eloquently, and the interdict was revoked. She died on September 17, 1179. Her surviving works include more than a hundred letters to emperors and popes, bishops, nuns, and nobility.

This involved a stay of four months in Tampere, in Finland's worst winter for fifty years. The experience was memorable not only for the weather conditions but for the refreshing open-mindedness of the Finns in their approach to modern music. The government funding of music education reflects the respect in which composing as a profession is held by the Finns. Their range of contemporary music festivals is enviable, and I found new works programmed at almost every concert, which were full without exception. On returning to Britain, I briefly researched Saariaho for a contemporary performance techniques project at college, but found very little research material of value available.
