Philosophies of Music History

By Warren Dwight Allen | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL SOURCES
WHEN it has been necessary to visit the New York Public Library or the Library of Congress in order to consult rare works, that fact is indicated with the initials NY or LC in the bibliographical notes. In addition to library files, a bibliography of musical bibliographies by Michel Brenet (Mlle. Bobillier) in L'anniée Musicale, Paris, 1911, provided an excellent starting point for bibliographical research. The following studies on the literature of music in general have been helpful:
J. N. Forkel, Allgemeine Literatur der Musik, Leipzig, 1792, 540 pp. NY.
Carl F. Becker, Systematisch-chronologische Darstellung der musikalischen Literatur von der frühesten bis die neueste Zeit. 1836, 605 pp. NY.
James E. Matthews, The Literature of Music, London, 1896.
Julia Gregory (Library of Congress Music Division), Catalogue of Early Books on Music (before 1800), Washington, 1913.
Adolf Aber, Handbuch der Musikliteratur, Leipzig, 1922, 695 pp. NY.
Eric Blom, General Index to Modern Music Literature in English, London, 1927, 159 pp.
Ludwig Schiedermair, Einführung in das Studium der Musikwissenschaft, Bonn, 1930, 107 pp.

Bibliographies of music history also appear under the title "History of Music" in Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, 1928 edition [99], and the Musiklexicons of Hugo Riemann [107] and H. J. Moser [287]. Current and past issues of the Peters Jahrbuch der Musikwissenschaft ( Leipzig), the Acta Musicologica ( Copenhagen), the Musical Quarterly ( New York), Music and Letters ( London), and La Revue Musicale ( Paris) provide book lists that are constant and growing sources of information.
