Many musicians have enjoyed the solo and chamber music of Robert Valentine, especially that for flute or recorder, but few know anything of this composer's life and other music. This volume lists all of Valentine's known works, including original works, arrangements, and fragments. In standard thematic catalog procedure, the full incipit and original title of each work is provided, together with the date of first publication, statement of medium or genre, key or sequence of keys, thorough description of early editions, and brief listings of manuscripts, modern editions, and recordings, and a title-page transcription. Further, Young provides a biographical overview derived from the editions, musical manuscripts, and research currently available. The work is a model combination of descriptive and analytic bibliography and biography.
