On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Dec. 3

Michael Hicks published the groundbreaking book Mormonism and Music: A History on this day (1989). His other scholarly works include topics of sixties rock, music history, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. While composer Hicks has written a variety of chamber and solo musical works, his academic studies have been the most significant additions by anyone to the understanding of Mormon music. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Hicks_(musicologist)
