Editorial Reviews


"Grier's book is welcome.... It is to be valued further for its insight into the nature of the editorial project and the close, distinctly non-tangential relationship the activity bears to the wider discipline of musicology. [Grier] has made an important and useful noise in an overly quiet field." Edward Harsh, Journal of Musicological Research

Book Description

The preparation of editions for performance and study is one of the most important activities and contributions of the music scholar to cultural life. This text examines music editing from the early music repertoire to contemporary works, including a number of genres from opera to the symphony.
