Description

Throughout recorded history the deaths of noble and heroic persons have inspired poets and musicians to create songs of lamentation. This unique bibliography simplifies access to approximately 2,150 such musical works composed between the late fourteenth century and the year 2000 to memorialize musicians. Arranged alphabetically by the name of the dedicatee, a typical entry includes the name, dates, and professional details of the musician being memorialized; name and dates of the composer; title, subtitle, and quote of the memorial dedication of the musical work; publication data; and additional descriptive notes when warranted to clarify the context of the work's creation. The bibliography is indexed by composer names as well as by birth and death dates of the dedicatees. A useful and unique resource for librarians, teachers, and musicians planning concerts, conferences, or exhibitions honoring musicians.
