The island nation of Cape Verde has given rise to a diaspora that spans the four continents of the Atlantic Ocean. Migration has been essential to the island since the birth of its nation and connections to faraway places continue to dominate its day-to-day life. This volume makes a significant contribution to the study of international migration and transnationalism by exploring the Cape Verdean diaspora through its geographic diversity and broad thematic range. Analyzing such themes in Cape Verdean transnationalism as music, language, the Internet, and gender relations, Transnational Archipe

This 35-minute work is sometimes thought of as Elgar's answer to his contemporary Richard Strauss' tone poem "Ein Heldenleben." It was given its premiere at the Birmingham Music Festival on Oct. 1, 1912 with the composer at the podium. Elgar quotes extensively from his own previous works throughout. This new vocal score is an unabridged digitally-enhanced reprint of the one issued by Novello & Co., Ltd. in 1912, enlarged to a more readable A4 size. A welcome addition for Elgar enthusiasts, alto soloists, choruses, and pianists.
