              From its earliest performances in the late 1860s, doubts have been expressed about the extent of the religiosity in Brahms' German Requiem. On the surface, such persistent questioning might seem unusual, particularly in our modern, more secular age. After all, Brahms specifically... designated his opus 45 work A German Requiem, To Words of the Holy Scriptures, and the roots of the term 'requiem' run deep in the Catholic tradition, as a mass for the dead. In addition, the texts selected by Brahms for the various movements of the German Requiem were all sourced exclusively from the Bible (ironically, unlike those used for the Catholic requiem), and it was first performed in a Cathedral, on Good Friday. On these bases, its specifically Christian orientation seems beyond dispute, at least from a lay perspective. The main basis for questioning to what extent the German Requiem is primarily a Christian work as opposed to what has loosely been described as a 'humanist' one with merely a Christian veneer revolves around the specific texts that Brahms chose for the work, and equally, those he rejected. This ambiguity surrounding the extent of the requiem's Christian nature is further compounded by more recent suggestions that the religiosity of the work (to whatever extent it exists) is less important or even incidental to the requiem's musical significance, and furthermore, that its text is better interpreted as a general consolation for the grieving rather than anything explicitly Christian. This work explores the text of the German Requiem from several angles and reveals that Brahms' selection of verses was closely in keeping with a specific German Protestant tradition of religious music extending back to Bach and even to Luther. The debate about the German Requiem's religiosity, that has lasted almost one and a half centuries, is now a step closer to being resolved through the findings contained in this monograph.

              Papers of Contest

              The theme of this collection of papers is contest. There is a challenge in each paper. The first paper looks at literacy in the nineteenth century in Aotearoa/New Zealand. In the next paper conventional research is challenged with an idea of indigenous modes of inquiry. The follo...wing paper looks at confrontational theatre and film in the 1990s. The discussion of Francis Pound and Wystan Curnow considers images, symbols and the art of a place, a country, I suppose. The review of Martin Blythe's book involves several of the themes so far considered as well as others and tries to describe an exciting analysis. The consideration of the native, the outlaw and the frontier widens the perspective of the collection. The rest of the papers in the collection take the idea of contest into different areas. The discussion of Suzie Cato takes the discussion into mainstream media in Aotearoa/New Zealand. By contrast the next article looks at work with perhaps more limited but nonetheless highly critical audiences and the construction of or the playing with a notion of the Pakeha-Maori. The final paper is a consideration of the grotesque. This raises a number of questions that are left hanging and that, I suppose, is what happens in a collection with the theme of contest,

              There is a sense in which the work here is dated referring as it does to work done in TESOL in the early nineties. That literature could be updated. There is a question though as to which direction to take from here and there is also the fact that whatever the argument is attache...d to it will eventually date. The advantage, I think, of the work referred to is that it is of a very high calibre. Other applications for the argument might well be found. Work on memory from the early childhood area is one possibility but there are others such as developments in educational theory and practice over the last half century. It may be though that no one major kind of example emerges. The book as it is or in any revision may just use examples from here and there. The theme may be a matter of constant return, going back again and again to questions of cognition and literacy.

              The second edition of Papers on Language does not have as broad a range of articles as the first but there is greater attention paid to certain topics like literacy and oral expression. The opening paper, Said, heard, written, read, is about literacy in Aotearoa and also opens up... a discussion of the oral environment. The richness of oral environments is considered again in the eleventh paper on socio-linguistic research done at St Stephens. The second paper, What do we know about the mark on the wall? might concern cognition as well as literacy. As before there is work on Maori grammar. Strengthening language: some more thoughts on Maori and Samoan, looks at strategies for language retention and was given at a conference to celebrate the Samoan millennium in Apia. The transmission of an ethic through language and song is considered in An ethic of empathy. There is something of this in the material from research on St Stephens quoted in chapter 11. Some of the features discussed are again turned to in the last paper, Wahi Rangahau, which considers language and ritual. The final paper is also about inquiry and this edition tries to builds on and to consolidate the sense of exploration in the earlier edition.

              This Monograph looks at memorialisation and identity and also looks at doubt about identity in Aotearoa-New Zealand. It marks a departure from earlier Monographs in the series like Land by Water or He Tono moo Te Maataawai which are extended literature reviews in that there is a ...speculative, discursive approach taken. While there is a lot of literature discussed the nature of identity in a small state is questioned in several ways.
