الموسيقي الشرقية والغناء العربي

by قسطندي رزق

لقد أُشربت محبة المرحوم عبده الحمولي منذ نعومة أظفاري يوم خالط المرحوم والدي بالزقازيق وزارنا في دارنا وغنانا غناءه العربي؛ فأعجبت به أيما إعجاب وارتسمت في ذهني صورة العروبة الفخمة بما مثَّل أمامنا من الحركات والأقوال التي صوَّرت لي إباء العرب وفروسيتهم وعظمتهم، وما أتاه من شجيّ التلحين وحسن الأداء، وتفخيم اللفظ الدال على معناه، والإبانة في مخارج الحروف، فهو حرىُّ بأن يكنى بغريد الشرق الذي لا تفتح العين على مثله، وأخذت منذ ذلك الحين أشعر بتيار موسيقى يتمشى في عروقي إلى أن أضحيت من المولعين بالغناء العربي الذي لا أصبو إلا إليه، وحزت ملكة التمييز بين جيده ورديئه لا سيما إذا سمعت ركزا لخليط مجدد. ولما هبَّ على الموسيقى العربية عاصف التجديد، وحاول أن يقتلع جذورها من تربتها المباركة الخصبة، شمرت لصد ذلك التيار عنها غيرة على عظمتها وسحرها، واتقاء للرمق الباقي منها، إذ هي الآن والعياذ بالله واقفة على مفترق طريقين لا محيد لها عن سلوك واحد منهما، فإما أن تحيا وتستعيد ماضي شبابها إذا تداركها أولو الأمر منا، وإما أن يسجل عليها الموت الذي لا حياة بعده إذا ألقينا حبل المجددين على غاربهم يجهزون على تلحيننا القومي ويرتضخون لَكْنَةً غربية بدلا من ترديد نبرنا العربي،

Abdication

by Juliet Nicolson

England, 1936. After the recent death of George V, the nation has a new king, Edward VIII. But for all the confident pomp and ceremony of the accession, it is a turbulent time. Terrible poverty and unemployment affect many, but trouble few among the ruling elite; for others, Oswald Mosley's New Party, which offers a version of the fascism on the rise in Germany, seems to offer the vision of the future. Nineteen-year-old May Thomas has just disembarked at Liverpool Docks after making the long journey by steamer from Barbados to escape the constraints of her sugar-plantation childhood. Her first job as a secretary and chauffeuse to Sir Philip Blunt, Chief Whip in Baldwin's Conservative government, will open her eyes to the upper echelons of British society... The unlikely friendship she forms with Evangeline Nettlefold, American god-daughter of the Chief Whip's wife and an old school friend of Wallis Simpson, will see her through family upheavals including the shocking, sudden loss of her mother; but more significant for May, the Blunts' son Rupert has an Oxford University friend, Julian, a young man of conscience for whom, despite all barriers of class, she cannot help but fall. Secrets, hidden truths, undeclared loves, unspoken sympathies and covert complicities are everywhere - biggest and most dangerous of them all, the truth about the new King's relationship with a married woman, and the silent horror that few in Britain dare voice: the increasing inevitability of another world war...
