The Shadows' influence on Australasian pop and rock music of the Sixties and Seventies is still much underrated, and their lead guitarist Hank Marvin probably inspired more aspiring electric guitarists than any other figure in popular music until the advent of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.
Teen-oriented pop music still enjoyed strong popularity during the 1970s, although much of it was sourced from overseas, and the proportion of Australian acts in the charts had hit an all-time low by 1973.
This fusion approach to jazz and electronic music performed live was extended in the late 1990s and early 2000s by The Hive (renamed The Baggsmen in 2002 to avoid confusion with a Swedish-based band with a similar name) and Entropic.

 AllRefer.com - church music (Music: Theory, Forms, And Instruments) - Encyclopedia
With few exceptions, music is essential to the ritual of every religion; the singing of prayers and portions of Scripture is part of Judaeo-Christian tradition, and a large number of melodies for specific parts of the liturgy were embodied in the medieval collection of church music called Gregorian chant.
Additional musical settings of liturgy from later times to the present have added to the liturgical repertory.
This may include works taken from the repertory above as well as music of religious content, e.g., oratorios or sacred cantatas and instrumental music that is not specifically secular in nature.

His mother, who was his first music teacher, wanted him to become a classical pianist.
Although as early as 12 he played the organ and sang in his father's church, his interests were with jazz - an interest and type of music that displeased his parents because of Jazz's connection with nightclubs and the sporting life.
Later that year he became the first fl to have a weekly show on network television (1956-57), but the show was canceled because it could not find a national sponsor.

 Music under Soviet rule: Ustvolskaya
Her music was performed at the Warsaw Autumn Festival during the late Fifties but, at home, she tended to be bracketed with Andrei Volkonsky (a cosmopolitan enfant terrible modernist) as largely beyond the pale.
The puritanical lashing fury of her music often suggests the image of Christ flogging the moneylenders from the temple, while several writers have remarked on the "Old Testament" vengefulness they hear in her work.
That her concept of God is both vividly apprehended and thoroughly idiosyncratic is clear from the absence of tenderness and redemption in her music, which seems predominantly apocalyptic in tone and outlook.

 Hamlet (1964): Music by Dmitry Shostakovich: Film Music on the Web CD Reviews July 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Ophelia's music grows sadder, more plaintive, more tragic through a series of four cues from 'Ophelia's Descent into Madness,' in which the harpsichord figures grow more and more despairing and dissonant, to the grisly melancholy of 'Death of Ophelia'.
The finale – music for 'The Duel - The Death of Hamlet - Hamlet's Funeral' is toweringly, mindlessly unrelenting dramatic and tense set piece.
I have to say though that while this is doubtless stunningly effective music in context – I've not seen the film – as a stand alone musical experience it is so relentlessly bleak, tortured and neurotic I can only praise the achievement while adding that I don't particularly care to ever play the disc again.

His early music showed a strong affinity with the music of Béla Bartók, and was generally conservative in nature.
In the mid to late 1940s, his compositional output was slowed by the tight restrictions put on music by the Stalinist-controlled Polish regime.
He resumed composing orchestral and chamber music in the 1950s, and with the gradual loosening of artistic controls in the Soviet Bloc (especially in Eastern European countries), he began to explore more modern techniques.

The music itself is looser than on the studio recordings, with Peacock beginning every tune with a solo and Albert gradually pushing the group towards one of his melodies.
The music recorded by the group of trio plus horns seems to be an experiment by Ayler in adding players to his band.
Albert was never satisfied with any of his bassists after Peacock[137] and, in his music from here on, began to use strings in different ways, with more pre-arranged roles and composed parts, depending on which players he could get.
