The Boston Musical Gazette edited and published by A.N. Johnson and J. Johnson, Jr., explores a well-spring of topics on music from composition to publishing to appreciation. This book republishes the numerous printings of the Boston Musical Gazette in a multi-volume set for readers to enjoy and preserve. An excellent resource for musicians, historians, singer/songwriters, or those with any interest in music and the music industry, the articles and essays presented in this volume do their best to cover a wide range of information which is easily approachable to readers of any level of interest in the topic of music.

The book explores a great range of topics including articles on musicians, composers, choir music, and music festivals, containing a year's worth of musical information in the Boston area. In addition, the gazette does its best to explore music by specific locations such as "The Music Scene in New York" or "The Romantic Sounds of Paris" as well as detailing specific forms of music from all over the world, like the music of Germany, Scotland, and China. Of course, music isn't just about performances, it's also about learning how to play, and the book includes several articles on music instruction, organ music, and piano music. Finally, the publication covers a wealth of modern genres such as church music and popular music, and a litany of articles on famous composer J. S. Bach, with unique comparisons and criticisms aimed at both educating the reader and imbibing them with a sense of passion.

Whether used as a source of reference or entertainment, The Boston Musical Gazette serves as an excellent starting point for those interested in music. It's an easy and approachable read for anyone with any level of interest in music and topics related to this subject. Highly recommended for all readers.
