Anthony Milner, who is recognized as Britain's leading Catholic composer, has been widely praised for his ability to combine freshness and originality with a thorough grounding in the historic traditions of music. Although his choral works on religious themes have attracted a wide audience, his instrumental works also have a prominent place in the modern repertoire. This new bio-bibliography is the first book devoted to Milner's music and career. It provides fully annotated catalogues of his compositions, performances and reviews of his works, and his achievements as a teacher, writer, and lecturer. The volume begins with a biographical survey of the life and works of Anthony Milner. A works and performances section presents a catalogue arranged alphabetically by genre and supplying descriptive notes and information on commissions, texts, scoring, and publication. A bibliography of some 400 references by or about Milner lists books, articles, magazine and newspaper reviews, published or broadcast talks, lectures and interviews, record album essays, and other publications. Quotations or summaries of the contents are provided. The volume includes a complete discography as well as several supplemental lists that will help the reader locate specific information. A research tool for performers, conductors, music critics, and specialists in musicology or church music, this work will be a useful addition to collections in contemporary, choral or liturgical music.
