    Think through the progression of music in the last 100 years.</font>
    • ragtime to</font>
    • jazz to</font>
    • swing to</font>
    • rock</font>
    • country/western is not a separate entity, but originally rooted in a folk/swing mixture (now Shania has the folk/rock sound)</font>
    Fussing over what was "pop" music of the 100 years before that.</font>
    • folk (for common folk)</font>
    • classical (for upper class) including operetta</font>
    • minstrel? Stephen Foster "Dixie" type?</font>
    Any help or insights appreciated. Am working on this with the infusion of "popular" music into the church's music .. but that is a ways away.

    Here's a good site, although it may be more than you wanted to know.

    Twentieth Century Style

    Good info on Hymnals. Hope it helps.

    Are you speaking specifically of American music, or are you also talking about (twentieth century) Poulenc, DeBussy, Stravinsky, etc.?

    I would say they are just as important as ragtime, jazz, etc.
