About the Author
Sarah Eyerly is Associate Professor of Musicology and Director of the Early Music Program at the Florida State University.
"Eyerly accomplishes what few scholars thought possible--creating a "sonic link" to early America and transporting us into the sensory and spiritual world that German-speaking Moravian missionaries and Native American Christians built and inhabited for a brief time in mid-eighteenth century Pennsylvania. Entering through the portal of her personal connections to this historical aural landscape, Eyerly's marvelous book and its compendium website transform readers into imaginative witnesses and embody a lost knowledge through digital methods, painstaking research, and a sensitive rendering of a place and time full of violence and hope. Moravian Soundscapes is an intellectual, auditory, and emotional revelation. "--Dr. Patrick M. Erben, University of West Georgia
