About the Authors
  • This is the first book to provide an introduction to music editing, including the history of the field, and the issues and problems encountered. The preparation of editions for performance and study is one of the most important activities and contributions of the music scholar to cultural life. Through accessible editions, previously unknown music enters the repertory, while well-known works receive fresh interpretations. James Grier examines music editing from the early music repertory to contemporary works, including a number of genres from opera to the symphony. Grier also examines the future of music editing and its application on CD-ROM and related electronic media.

    • First book to discuss and explain clearly for students the principles of editing music
    • Received prestigious funding award from Yale University Hilles Publication Fund
    • Discusses editing of the music repertory from early music through to the nineteenth century, including opera
