    ';Captivatingequal parts memoir and cultural history, Henry Alford seamlessly interweaves heartwarming and hilarious anecdotes about his deep dive into all things dance' (Misty Copeland, The New York Times Book Review). When Henry Alford wrote about his experience with a Zumba class for The New York Times, little did he realize that it was the start of something much bigger. Dance would grow and take on many roles for Henry: exercise, stress reliever, confidence builder, an excuse to travel, a source of ongoing wonder, andwhen he dances with Alzheimer's patientseven a kind of community service. Tackling a wide range of forms (including ballet, hip-hop, jazz, ballroom, tap, contact improvisation, Zumba, swing), Alford's grand tour takes us through the works and careers of luminaries ranging from Bob Fosse to George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp to Arthur Murray. Rich in insight and humor, Alford mines both personal experience and fascinating cultural history to offer a witty and ultimately moving portrait of how dance can express all things human. And Then We Danced ';is in one sense a celebration of hoofer in all its wonder and variety, from abandon to refinement. But it is also history, investigation, memoir, and even, in its smart, sly way, self-helpvery funny, but more, it is joyfula dance all its own' (Vanity Fair).

  • - After the Authorized Version; Newly Compared With the Original Greek, and Revised
    by Henry Alford
    £11.99

    Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. IT is necessary to premise a few words regarding the view with which this Revision of the Authorized Version has been undertaken. It seemed to the Reviser, and to some others, that the time was ripe for an effort to be made to publish the English New Testament in a form more consonant to the now ascertained ancient Greek text, and with corrections of inadequate renderings.

    Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. After what has been said of the style of this Epistle, it would be in vain to attempt to range its contents under any continuous heads of thought. But we may indicate its principal portions and divisions, and remark, as we do so, on some of the precious and important passages. Which abound in it. After the address and greeting (i. I, the Apostle gives thanks for their fellowship regard ing the Gospel (3 expresses confidence that God will continue and perfect the same (6 and prays for their increase in holiness unto the day of Christ (9 Then follows a remark able passage (12 in which he describes his condition at Rome: his feelings and hopes.

  • - Stray Notes on Speaking and Spelling
    by Henry Alford
    £8.99

    Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. Stray notes on spelling and speaking. The things of which I have to treat are for the most part insulated and unconnected so that I fear there will not be even the appearance of connection between the various parts of my volume. And again, it must he confessed that they are not of a very interesting kind. I shall have to speak of such dull things as parts of speech, and numbers, and genders; the obscuration, or the conventional and licensed violation, of rules of grammar, and the pronunciation and spelling of words.'

    Alford was born in London in 1810. Something of a prodigy he had published several Latin odes and a history of the Jews by the time he was 10. Graduating from Cambridge his life was to follow in the family footsteps of being a clergyman and he held the post of Vicar at Wymeswold in Leicestershire, for the next 18 years. Shortly after this he became the Dean of Canterbury. Much of his career highlights are based on his theology and such works as his startling 4 volume edition of the New Testament in Greek. But in this volume we concentrate on his poems. A fine example of a Victorian poet who wrote several volumes of his own verse, his work is undeniably religious in tone but it has that quality of wonderment of expressing something beyond and apart from themselves. Many of these titles are on our audiobook version which can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.
