Stanley Sadie (1930-2005), former music critic for The Times of London and editor of The Musical Times, published thirty books and edited the monumental New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians.From Library Journal:
Although this work bears the name of Sir George Grove, it is not a condensed version of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians ( LJ 12/15/80). Though largely based upon The New Grove , and retaining its relative scope and authority, the work is intended as quick reference for a broad spectrum of readers. Thus unlike The New Grove , it includes names and nicknames of significant works but no bibliographic references and few illustrations. While one might find the New Oxford Companion to Music ( LJ 11/1/83) as useful for illustrative material, the present volume is highly recommended, particularly for information on recent events. William J. Waters, Pensacola Jr. Coll., Fla.
