Nothing quite like this?a chronology specifically of American music?has appeared since Henry Charles Lahee's Annals of Music in America (1922). This work, of course, bears a strong similarity to Hall's (music history, Andrews Coll., Michigan) three previous musical chronicles covering the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries (e.g., An Eighteenth-Century Music Chronicle 1750-1799, Greenwood, 1990), though the scope here is limited to American music. For each year, historical and cultural highlights are listed, followed by two separate entries on music, one covering the "vernacular/commercial scene" and the other the "cultivated/art music scene." These musical entries include births, deaths, debuts of performers and foundings of musical groups, publications, and compositions. The coverage of American music is significantly expanded here from Hall's earlier volumes; in addition, it picks up the years 1700-49 and 1988-95. The index is more detailed as well: compositions are now indexed, although only under the composer's name. Another welcome addition is the bibliography.
