Green presents useful data on 28 nineteenth-century composers... This reference source will assist conductors of professional, university, or community choruses... It can also serve as a basic guide for those researching specific compositions. American Reference Books Annual This new imprint represents another exceptional reference contribution by Jonathan D. Green... An impressive array of information helpful to conductors in researching and programming concerts... Green provides such a breadth and thoroughness of information and performance knowledge in this book that it deserves a strong recommendation. -- James Deffenbaugh Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, March 2009 Green's book is accurate and well organized ... Green offers the young conductor, amateur, and part-time director the information needed to make informed programming decisions on less-frequently performed works based on the abilities of their ensembles. Additionally, he provides a few cautionary tidbits about difficulties in rehearsal or performance that might head off a few musical catastrophes. For the scholar, Green provides a starting point for the repertoire and its literature. For the librarian, this monograph is a handy reference and an invaluable collection development tool. Ultimately, the greatest value in Green's monographs is the collocation of an entire repertoire within a single unified set. Fontes Artis Musicae, Spring 2009
