with Henry Goodwin and Sandy Williams among the members of the band.

his film Ran (1985), used intercultural music by the composer T ō ru Takemitsu. Indian cinema has long been identified with its non-naturalistic use of song and dance, and Indian Shakespeare films adopt this approach. The troubled romantic expressivity of Hamlet and Ophelia is portrayed in a vocal duet, for example, in the Hindi-language Hamlet directed and written by Kishore Sahu (1954), with music by Ramesh Naidu. Shakespeare has been extensively re-envisioned in modern Indian settings in the work of the director-composer Vishal Bhardwaj, notably in his treatments

In the Indian subcontinent the Methodists formed unions with other Protestant churches to form the Church of South India ( 1947 ) and similarly united churches in North India and Ceylon. American Methodists have also undertaken worldwide missions, concentrating their efforts more especially among Amerindians and in Latin America: the MEC Missionary Society was set up in 1819. American Methodist missions have been extensive in East Asia, with a particularly notable thrust in China

Vesalii icones , where a male dancer established links between the Stations of the Cross and a sequence of 16th-century anatomical drawings, the work concluding with a mock resurrection accompanied by a foxtrot. Foxtrots were equated with bad taste – a clear indication of falsity – and elsewhere in the work were associated with the same Victorian hymn tune as in both versions of Missa super L’homme armé. In St Thomas Wake ( 1969 ), foxtrots were allocated to a small ensemble functioning as a kind of concertino, interposing 1930s dance-band material into the main

Song structure has a wider tonal range than other Bulgarian songs, reaching a 7th or an octave, with highly ornamented
