Editorial Reviews

?Most scholars and researchers in black music know the special collections at Howard, Fisk, and Atlanta universities; but they are largely unaware of the reservoir musical resources at other black colleges and universities. This unique bibliography is a detailed inventory of published and unpublished compositions, hymnals and songbooks, phonograph and tape recordings, correspondence, photographs, programs, broadsides, and newspaper, magazine and journal clippings located in the special collections at 17 black colleges and universities in the US. A chapter on each of the ten institutions that own music manuscript collections appears in Part 1. Smaller collections are minutely described; extensive collections are treated more closely here than in any other available source. Those institutions without music manuscripts are represented, along with the others, in the bibliography and union list in Part 2. The biographical data on persons mentioned in the inventories and the author's carefully crafted introduction give this catalog the scholarly and literary ingredients of an encyclopedic history. Part 2 is a union list of 1,135 books on black and African music and musicians in the special collections at the 17 institutions listed in Part 1. Both parts are indexed in the general index. Essential for libraries supporting African-American music and musicians.?-Choice
