Holy Brotherhood: Romani Music in a Hungarian Pentecostal Church is a musical ethnography of a religious community. After the end of socialism, different ethnic groups in Hungary harbored antagonism toward one another. In one Pentecostal church in Pecs, Hungary, however, both Hungarians and Roma (Gypsies) worshipped and made music together. Three musical repertoires coexisted, each with a separate historical background and complex social meanings: Romani religious song; nineteenth-century gospel hymns originally from the United States; and contemporary Christian pop from the United States. Church members accommodated cultural and musical differences by developing several distinct performance styles.Another key gift from the Holy Spirit, she believed, was the ability to memorize and recite these poems. She had only completed the fifth grade, and, like the composers, she did not view her human intelligence as capable of such things. ... Contests are a feature of later school life, where high school students can compete for prizes in the dramatic recitation of works by the distinguished Hungarian poets.
