Editorial Reviews

?Pemberton is identified as a community college English instructor, but her publications have appeared in music education journals, and her dissertation was on Lowell Mason. She writes from a thorough knowledge of her subject, who was a leading figure in 19th-century American music and a pioneer teacher of music in schools. Pemberton furnishes a list of Mason's 11 monographs and articles, followed by entries for 268 representative writings about him. Detailed annotations are provided. Mason's compositions and published collections of church music are meticulously described. An expansive index of persons, worktitles, and topics concludes the book.?-Choice
