Haberl, Franz Xaver
(1840-1910)
working for church music reform, in 1874 Haberl founded a famous school for church musicians at Regensburg (Ratisbon). This school began with three professors - Dr. Haberl, Dr. Jacob, and Canon Haller - and only three pupils, and attracted reform-minded church music programs. Haberl not only secured permanency for the school in the shape of endowment, but he built next to it a church, dedicated to St. Cecilia, where pupils are given opportunities for practising the knowledge they have acquired in theory. As president of the St. Cecilia Society, which position he held from 1899 until his death, as editor of Musica Sacra and Fliegende Blätter für Kirchenmusik, the official organ of the society, as the author of Magister Choralis, now in the twelfth edition, and of innumerable articles on historical, theoretical, and scientific subjects, but especially as director of the school which he founded, Haberl championed the spirit and authority of the Church in musical matters against modernizing influences

Half-diminished seventh chordhalbverminderte Septakkord (German), which, when written slightly differently, as the notes F, B, D# and G#, consisting successively of the intervals, an augmented fourth, a major third, and a perfect fourth, is called the Tristan chord), the half-diminished seventh chord is made up of a diminished triad with an added minor seventh; for example, F, Ab, Cd, Ed, the intervals being successively minor third, minor third, major third. The fully diminished seventh chord has successive intervals minor third, minor third and minor third, that is a diminished triad with an added diminished seventh
in functional analysis, naming a chord and deciding which enharmonic choices to make when writing it should be determined by how the chord is perceived to function. In non-functional (or structural analysis) the notes alone tell us what it is. The half-diminished seventh chord, which we have already noted can be rewritten as the Tristan chord, may also be further rewritten, using the notes B, D#, F, A, in which case it could be interpreted as a suspended altered subdominant II chord

Half mordentthe 'turn-with-a-line-through-it' is a mystery ornament that occurs in Haydn's piano music, which he called a "half mordent" but for which he offered no explanation as to how it should be played. The confusion is made greater by the fact that his use of the symbol was inconsistent. In similar places he sometimes substitutes the normal turn as a symbol or even writes the turn out. Today, pianists play a normal turn or a mordent since, in his use of the ornament, it is generally indistinguishable from a mordent. This strange ornament is discussed in the preface to the Weiner Urtext Edition of Haydn's Piano Sonatas. Sonja Gerlach, in the Preface to the Henle edition of the Violoncello Concerto in D major (Hob. V11b:2), writes "Haydn's "half mordent" Q should usually be regarded as a quick turn performed on the beat, though it may also be intended as an inverted mordent

Half stopped hornsometimes called 'echo horn', these notes are performed by closing the bell nearly totally and fingering the notes a half step above the note you want to sound. This effect is specifically requested by some composers to obtain a very distant sound, like an echo. Paul Dukas calls for this effect (for example, by writing sons d'écho (prenez le doigté un 1/2 ton au dessus)) in the well-known horn solo Villanelle and in Sorcerer's Apprentice where the composer asks that the opening solo on the first horn to be played half-stopped. It makes it very, very difficult to play and most players will either play it fully stopped or will possibly even use a mute

Halicarnassusan ancient Greek city on the southwestern coast of Asia Minor (what is now Bodrum, Turkey), site of the mausoleum at Halicarnassus. This tomb was built between 353 and 350 BC for Mausolus (377-353 BC), a satrap in the Persian Empire, and Artemisia II of Caria, his wife and sister. She is renowned in history for her extraordinary grief at the death of her husband (and brother). She is said to have mixed his ashes in her daily drink, and to have gradually pined away during the two years that she survived him. The structure was designed by the Greek architects Satyros and Pythis. It stood approximately 45 m (148 ft) in height, and each of the four sides was adorned with sculptural reliefs created by each one of four Greek sculptors - Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas of Paros and Timotheus. The finished structure was considered to be such an aesthetic triumph that Antipater of Sidon identified it as one of his Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

Halle Pietismthree magistrates belonging to the Pietist society founded in Leipzig by Philipp Jakob Spener, including August Hermann Francke who was to found the famous orphanage at Halle (1695), commenced courses of expository lectures on the Scriptures of a practical and devotional character, and in the German language, which were zealously frequented by both students and townsmen. The lectures aroused, however, the ill-will of the other theologians and pastors of Leipzig, and Francke and his friends left the city, and with the aid of Christian Thomasius and Spener founded the new University of Halle. The movement, guided by Francke, spread from Halle throughout the whole of Middle and North Germany. Among its greatest achievements, apart from the philanthropic institutions founded at Halle, were the revival of the Moravian Church in 1727 by Count von Zinzendorf, Spener's godson and a pupil in the Halle School for Young Noblemen, and the establishment of Protestant missions

Hamam(German m./n., from Turkish) or hammam, the Turkish variant of a sauna, distinguished by a focus on water as opposed to steam
the bride's pre-wedding visit to the hamam was a distinctive custom in ancient Turkey. One of the prerequisite gifts of the family of the groom was a vest, and a pair of loose trousers, the shalvar made of fine felt cloth. This outfit was worn on the special day for going to and coming back from the bath during the winter months. Another item of clothing worn specifically on the day of the bride's visit to the hamam, was a silk robe open at the front similar to the Japanese kimono. The collar, the sleeves, and the front borders were all embroidered. In this ornate robe, the bride would sit on an elevated seat, much like a throne in the tepidarium, or the warm room of the hamam. Maidens and young attendants carried candles as they walked in circle around the would-be bride. Then, with the bride leading the way, the procession would move slowly behind a woman beating the tambourine, around the hamam's main pool. Singing and chanting joyously, the candle-bearing procession would go around the pool several times. Following this ritual, the bridal veil is produced and used to cover the bride's head. After the procession comes the ceremony of wishing. Unmarried girls, wishing to find an ideal husband, tossed coins into the pool
