About the Author:

Peter Mills is Senior Lecturer in Media &Popular Culture at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. He was singer and lyricist for the band Innocents Abroad who made two albums, Quaker City and Eleven. He has taught music, literature and philosophy at universities in the UK , Hungary, Romania and Croatia, and has published work on, amongst others, Samuel Beckett, Olaf Stapledon, Hungarian folk music, Pink Floyd, national anthems and The KLF.

Review:

"Littered with sparkling quotes from such artists as Kevin Rowland, Maria McKee, Kate Rusby and Fiachra Trench (themselves armed with an acute knowledge and understanding of Van Morrison's work), I cannot praise this book highly enough. Its investigative validity is agglutination to that of the musical importance of its subject." www.davidmarx.co.uk May 2010

Review on http://www.vanmorrisonnews.blogspot.com

"Mills, who clearly holds Morrison in the highest esteem and shows an exhaustive knowledge of the singer's body of work, has written an analysis of interest to academics in the field as well as any devoted fan. The complexities of Morrison's oeuvre are made visible in discussion that encompasses his vocal style; his use of jazz, gospel, folk, and blues; and the meaning and possible symbolism of repeated poetic themes and places in his music. In addition to lines from the songs, many quotations from interviews with Morrison are included." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.



"Mills ... is clearly a huge fan [of Van Morrison] who has drawn a lot of emotional succour from Morrison's work over the years."
The Word Magazine
Interview with author in Yorkshire Post, 18th June 2010

Reviewed in Leeds Guide, Wednesday 29th September

'An in-depth, passionate and eloquent study of Van Morrison as a performer both live and in the recording studio'



'It is one of my favourite Morrison songs, a perfect ball of love and desire, belief and rock'n'roll, and, perhaps more oddly, one of themost frequently performed songs at his shows. Peter Mills, in Hymns to the Silence, refers to it as ''this dark horse of a song'' — a way to describe the surprising appeal of a song that was never a hit, but has provedcompelling to many.' (The Guardian)

Peter Mills groundbreaking book investigates the oppositions and harmonies within the work of Van Morrison, proceeding from this identified starting point. Hymns to the Silence is a detailed investigative study of Van Morrison s remarkable career. The book takes several intriguing angles.

It looks at him as a singer, at how he uses his voice as an interpretive instrument. And there are in-depth chapters on his use of mythology, on his stage performances, and on his continuing fascination with America and its musical forms.
