Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sharp (Church and Worship Music: A Research and Information Guide) and Floyd (Composers in the Classroom: A Bio-Bibliography of Composers at Conservatories, Colleges, and Universities in the United States), both with Baylor University libraries, have added significantly to this second edition without straying far from their original scope and organization. For example, the material in this book, as in its predecessor, emphasizes "inclusiveness over scholarly quality." The second edition covers titles printed or reprinted between 1960 and 2009, accessible using title, author, and subject indexes. Almost all of the 272 new volumes listed were published after 2000 (the cut-off for the first edition). The "Studies of Individual Composers and Works" chapter has been significantly expanded by the addition of 50 more entries covering 17 more composers, including Gustav Mahler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The "Choral Music Websites" chapter is the most expanded, with a whopping 82 additional sites. While some of the included online resources (e.g., Chadwyck's International Index to Music Periodicals and ProQuest's Dissertations and Theses) require a subscription, this is not noted in the annotation. BOTTOM LINE This is one of few resources of its kind with a broad focus (others concentrate on a specific time period or geographic area). Unfortunately, its annotations are not critically evaluative, making it difficult for novice users to determine the quality of one resource over another. Still, this specialized resource will be a welcome addition to academic libraries serving undergraduate and graduate students in music.—Sarah Sutton, Texas A&M Univ. Lib., Corpus Christi
