Axton, M. ; Carley, J.P. 'Triumphs of English' : Henry Parker, Lord Morley, Translator to the Tudor Court : New Essays in Interpretation. British Library, London, first edition, 2000.
From the blurb: "One of the few authors from the ranks of the nobility during the first half of the sixteenth century, Henry Parker, Lord Morley (c.1481-1556) is an undeservedly neglected figure, whose rehabilitation this volume sets out to accomplish. Morley was the first Tudor writer to render Petrarch's Trionfi into English verse, he set about imitating the 'Italian Ryme called Soneto', and he translated Plutarchian Lives into English decades before any other writer attempted to do so. He presented his translations each year as New Year's gifts to those he wished to please, individuals as diverse as Henry VIII himself, the King's daughter Mary, and Thomas Cromwell. To Mary he wrote in praise of orthodoxy, whilst to Henry and Cromwell he condemned the pope in no uncertain terms. As the essays in this deeply interdisciplinary collection show, Morley was a kind of mirror of the ways in which the Tudor nobility functioned in a world wracked by faction and discord."

Carley -- Books connected with Henry Parker, Lord Morley and his family / Julia Boffey and A.S.G. Edwards -- Morley, Machiavelli, and the Pilgrimage of Grace / K.R.

Charlie Parker Records, Membran Media GmbH,Jan 2012 ISBN: 0885150331934
Jeder Plattensammler ist bestimmt schon mal über ein Album, auf dem ein kleiner Saxofon spielender Vogel und der Label-Name 'Charlie Parker Records' abgebildet ist, gestolpert. Bei näherer Betrachtung der Rückseite fällt einem direkt das Veröffentlichungsdatum aus den sechziger Jahren und die Überschrift 'Stereo-pact!' auf. War die Headline 'Bird Lives' wörtlicher gemeint, als man annahm Was haben Rays Nance und Barretto mit Charlie Parker gemeinsam Wer ist der 'Satan in High Heels' Wann haben Barney Kessel und Harold Land 'El Tigre' gezähmt Und wofür steht 'Stereo-pact!' überhaupt In Internet-Foren, unter Fans und Plattensammlern ranken sich wilde Gerüchte um die Veröffentlichungen dieses Labels aus den sechziger Jahren. Obwohl im Internet eine komplette Liste der Veröffentlichungen zu finden ist, wurde der Gesamtkatalogs dieses legendären Labels noch nie gesammelt angeboten. Mit dieser Sammlung aus neu gemasterten Original-Alben wird der komplette Katalog von 'Charlie Parker Records' aus den Jahren 1961 bis 1965 erstmals gesammelt veröffentlicht. Das Label wurde von Charlie Parkers Witwe Doris und dem Musik-Magnaten Aubrey Mayhew gegründet, um die Veröffentlichungen von illegalen 'Live-Bootlegs', die nach Charlie Parkers Tod auftauchten, zu kontrollieren. 50 Alben und mindestens 5 Singles wurden auf 'Charlie Parker Records' veröffentlicht, um die Musik von Charlie Parker zu huldigen. Unter den Künstlern, die Musik bei 'Charlie Parker Records' veröffentlicht haben, finden sich, neben Charlie Parker selbst, Freunde, Fans und Bewunderer dieses einzigartigen Musikers und Komponisten.
