Editorial Reviews

March 2009 CHOICE
Much needed to call attention to what has been written and how to find it. This volume will be useful in all colleges and universities where voice is taught and art song encouraged....Recommended. Two-star review.
March/April 2009 Journal of Singing
Recent American Art Song fills a void in repertoire resources. Every university library should own this volume, and teachers who wish to explore new repertoire will find this a useful and reasonably priced addition to their studios.
June 2009 Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association
Everything represented here was composed in the last quarter-century, and it is high time this segment of the repertoire receive its official due. Most useful for choosing new pieces are the indices of songs by voice type and by difficulty. One can only hope that future editions will follow Clifton's lead.
August 2008 American Reference Books Annual
Recent American Art Song: A Guide is a well-researched directory of U.S. songwriters and their music since 1980....The author is a world authority on the topic.
