About the Author

Alexander Rosenblatt is a harpsichordist and musicologist. Currently, he is a senior lecturer in the Department of Literature, Art, and Music at Zefat Academic College, Israel. He holds a PhD in ethnomusicology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel (2013). He has been a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (2013-2014) and a visiting researcher at the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society, University of Victoria, BC (2021), Canada. He is a member of ICTMD (International Council for Traditions of Music and Dance) since 2012 and the board member of FoMRFI (Fellowship of Makers and Researchers of Historical Instruments), Oxford, UK. He is also an active member of the Israel Musicological Society and has been its chairman in 2017-2019 and editor of its peer-reviewed academic journal Min-Ad: Israeli Studies in Musicology Online (2021-2023). Dr Rosenblatt has authored scientific articles published in international peer-reviewed journals as well as books pertaining to his areas of research and interest, including music and sociocultural issues, music of Christian worship, and the anthropology of art and music.


This book presents the riveting cultural history of the Pacific Northwest, a territory that crosses the national boundaries of Canada and the U.S., where the diverse populations preserve different centuries-old traditions. In this research, a multicultural historical perspective meets modern-day indigenous art, current movements in the Western church, a palette of hymn books, and church music practices. The author masterfully combines a breadth of thematic coverage, an open-minded discussion of controversial and sensitive topics, and facts from his personal ethnographer's experience to create a fascinating and comprehensive text.
