Jubilate, Amen! A Festschrift in Honor of Donald Paul Hustad


Wolz, Larry, The Hymn


Jubilate, Ameni A Testschrift in Honor of Donald Paul Hustad edited by Paul A. Richardson and Tim Sharp. Hillsdale, NY: Pendragon, 2010. 471 + xiii pp. ISBN 978-1-57647-138-8. $60.00.

Paul Richardson and Tim Sharp have done a masterful job editing this collection honoring Donald P. Hustad, FHS, on his ninetieth birthday. It is one of the most interesting and informative works of its kind that this reviewer has read in a long time. Versions of much of the book's material were first presented to Dr. Hustad in March 2008 at the Southern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association meeting in Louisville, Kentucky.

Erik Roudey first declared the landmark status of Hustad's magnum opus Jubilate! in a 1981 review of the book. Several contributors to this book of essays echo Roudey's assessment of Jubilate! and its successor Jubilate II (1993). Michael Hawn, for example, highlights Carlton Young's comment that Hustad's book is "the long awaited complement to Leonard Ellinwood's History of American Church Music (1953)" (207). If Hustad had done nothing more than author Jubilate! his place in American church music history would be secure. But, of course, his career and his curiosity are multi-faceted and that is reflected in the wide range of topics found in Jubilate, Amen!

Jubilate, Amen! is arranged in four sections: Appreciations, Biography and Bibliography, Articles and Essays, and Hymns. The Appreciations include short pieces from Billy Graham, D. Leslie Hollon, the late Hugh T. McElrath, and George H. Shorney.

The Biography and Bibliography section of the book is written by Rhonda S. Furr, an authority on Hustad's life and work, who wrote her D.M.A. dissertation at Southern Seminary on that topic in 1988. Don't miss Hustad's assessment of the current state of church music in America (47-50), written in late 2007, especially for this book.

The Articles and Essays section (107-461) form the bulk of the book. The eighteen works here are by some of the most distinguished scholars, hymnologists, and hymn writers working today, all of whom have had some association with Hustad over the years. Five writers have tackled the current state of church music. Thomas W. Bolton's "The Critical Condition of Church Music Ministry; A Medical Analogy for Diagnosis, Treatment, and Sustained Health" takes a thought provoking new approach to the topic. Other essayists on the current state of church music include Deborah Carlton Loftis, Milburn Price, Carl Schalk and Paul Westermeyer. …
