Prepared by the Music Library Association, with thousands of records selected by experts in dozens of specialized and popular areas of music, A Basic Music Library constitutes the most authoritative music collection resource available. Completely revised and reorganized, this essential reference is divided into three sections:
  • Classical music (organized by genre, composer, and title)
  • Popular music (organized by genre and artist)
  • World music (organized by geographic area, genre, and artist)
The expanded coverage not only includes new music published since the last edition, but also CDs, DVDs, and songbooks combined with printed music. Printed scores cover performance of all music genres by all instruments, voices, and ensembles and include anthologies, study scores, performing renditions, vocal scores, and instrumental methods of studies.
