Mary DibbernPhD HUMAPublication Ange Flégier: Mélodies for Bass Voice and PianoToccata Classics (London) Although the French composer Ange Flégier (1846–1927) has now been lost from view, he enjoyed considerable fame in his own time thanks to the extraordinary reception of his song Le Cor. Indeed, the mélodie holds a predominant place in his catalogue of more than 350 works. Flégier’s songs, composed for his colleagues at the Opéra de Paris, are large-scale and orchestrally conceived, sitting stylistically close to Duparc in their dignified drama. Many of them receive their first recordings or first modern recordings here. Mary Dibbern and her collaborator Jared Schwartz discovered the songs, published over 100 years ago, in the music department of the Bibliothèque national in Paris, France.09-30-2016
Mary DibbernPhD HUMAPublication Massenet: General Catalogue of WorksPendragon Press The bi-lingual Massenet: General Catalogue of Works, produced in collaboration with the Internaional Massenet Association and written in French and English, is a complete inventory of the known works of Jules Massenet. It has been produced with the sponsorship of the International Massenet Association. The purpose of this document, written French and translated into English, is to facilitate research, performance, and general knowledge of Massenet's music. For each work it gives the vocal and/or instrumental nomenclatures (with operatic roles listed by tessitura), the author(s) of associates texts, the location of manuscripts, and other pertinent details. The authors, specialists in nineteenth-century French repertoire, have established listings of works organized by musical genre: opera, sacred music, cantatas and vocal scenes, choruses, incidental music, symphonic music, piano music, and concert songs. The songs, which represent a large part of Massenet's oeuvre (some 280 titles), have been organized by title as well as by author, along with a summary of songs appearing in cycles, songs for more than one voice, and those found in editions or collections. The Catalogue includes explanatory paragraphs and annotations for each section, a select bibliography, a general index of works and an index of proper names. Appendices contain a biographical chronology; information on such works as Manon (the completely sung version) and L'Histoire de Manon, the composite ballet arranged and orchestrated by Leighton Lucas; the cantatas Louise de Mézières and David Rizzio; as well as the Hymne that remained unpublished until discovered by Hervé Oléon during the research for this Catalogue. Finally, the catalogue’s authors have created a system of DO numbers (Dibbern-Oléon) that in order to establish, for the first time, an exact quantification of Massenet's works and which will be useful as definitive reference numbers for this oeuvre.08-05-2016

Mary-Catherine MuellerPhD HUSLLecturerLecturer in EnglishDedman College of Humanities and Sciences – Department of English: Discernment and Discourse; Holocaust Literature Southern Methodist UniversityMary-Catherine Mueller is a Doctoral Candidate (ABD) in Humanities – Studies in Literature and Holocaust Studies at UTD, and also a full-time Lecturer in English at Southern Methodist University. Her research and writings focus on 18th to 20th Century European Literature, Transcontinental Cultural Studies of America and Europe, Pedagogical Approaches to Teaching Rhetoric and Composition, and the Representations of the Holocaust in Pop-Culture, Society, and Literature. Through Mueller’s doctoral work, publications, and international conference presentations (from London to Jerusalem), she hopes to shed light on the significance and sanctity of every life (from the unborn to the aged), by addressing the Holocaust and that which happens when society deems one’s life less valuable than another’s. As a professor, Mueller hopes to introduce students to authors who may in time become their teachers, to ideas that may broaden their perspectives, and to discussions that may challenge or change their long-held presuppositions or help them solidify what it is that they believe. 06-22-2017
