Critique: Cox (...) builds up a vivid picture of what life was like for musicians in the Salvation Army... (His) admirably documented and readable study belongs to the social history of British music and makes a fascinating contribution. MUSICAL OPINIONAs Cox amply demonstrates, Richard Slater was pivotal in creating a self-contained Salvationist musical world (...) Drawing upon an impressive number of primary and secondary sources ... (Cox) ... manages to capture the theological motivation behind Salvationist music - the redemption of the lost (...) Such a balanced assessment should make this well-researched volume appealing to religious and social historians of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Britain. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY Music has been part of Christian worship for millennia and this study shows that Slater and his 'Army' bands deserve an honourable mention in that history. CONTEMPORARY REVIEW This book brings to notice the man who was central to the shaping of so much that Salvationists take for granted and the evolution of what was shaped. ... (It keeps) brilliantly to its main ground of grassroots music with scholarship and a refreshing understanding that bangs no drum. It is an excellent reference work. I cannot commend it too highly. SALVATIONIST The wealth of fresh insight is impressive (...) For anyone interested in the evolution of Salvation Army music and of its place and function within a broader social context, The Musical Salvationist is both informative and engaging. BRITISH BANDSMAN This book will please the scholar and the general reader. (...) Cox allows us to reassess and better understand in the clearest manner this key figure in SA music and mission. We get a truly human story. (...) This is an outstanding study that makes a vital contribution to the growing field of research into Salvation Army music. THE BRASS HERALD
