In Sarah Anna Glover: Nineteenth Century Music Education Pioneer, Jane Southcott explores the life and pedagogy of Sarah Anna Glover, the female music education pioneer of congregational singing (psalmody) and singing in nineteenth-century schools. Glover devoted her life to the creation and propagation of a way of teaching class music that was meticulously devised, musically rigorous, and successfully promulgated. Southcott analyzes Glover’s methods, history, and memory, and works to correct inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have emerged since Glover’s death.
