9780810830370: Choral Music by African-American Composers: A Selected, Annotated Bibliography, 2nd Edition

Lists and describes approximately 1,600 published and unpublished choral works by more than 100 African-American composers and arrangers, 600 more works than the first edition. Many of these works, representing all styles from simple four-part settings to avant-garde pieces, have not been performed before because of the difficulty in locating them. White's bibliography provides a useful tool for busy conductors wishing to perform music by African-American composers, and serves as an incentive to choral conductors to program little-known composers as well as unknown works by established musicians.

Arrangement is by composer. Entries list number of pages; voicing and solo requirements; vocal ranges; degree of difficulty; a cappella or type of accompaniment; publishers; and catalog number. Also included are a title index; a listing of selected collections of Negro spirituals; biographical sketches of African-American composers and arrangers; and three appendixes: selected source readings, selected discography, and addresses of publishers and composers.

About the Author:

Evelyn Davidson White was professor of music at Howard University, where she served as associate director of the widely-acclaimed Howard University Choir, and directed the Howard University Chapel Choir.

Review:

No other resource competes with this volume, which merits acquisition by all libraries with music collections and should be on the bookshelves of all choral conductors. (Choice)

...the outstanding feature of this book is the illuminating introduction that ranges across the history of its subject... (Eric Winter)
