(Hardback - May 2002)
$69.95 - Online Price


This is a new edition of one of the most famous of Oxford Companions, published in one handy volume for the first time in over 30 years. It replaces both the classic single-volume Oxford Companion to Music by Percy Scholes, first published in 1938 and now in its tenth edition (1970), and the subsequent two-volume New Oxford Companion to Music, edited by Denis Arnold and published in 1983. The new edition draws on Arnold, but has a more concentrated focus on the Western classical tradition. About 70 per cent of the text is new or has been extensively rewritten. Apart from the brief definition-type entries requiring no change, all the material has been thoroughly revised and updated. There are hundreds of new entries.
