Music Resources and Trumpet Music
at the
Paul Meek Library


General music resources and reference

The music reference section is located on the first floor and includes all call numbers beginning with the letter 'M'.

Baker's Biographical Dictionary  (ML 105 .B16 2001)
An excellent resource for biographical information for major and minor composers. The preface by editor Nicolas Slonimsky is a good read. I also recommend Slonimsky's Lexicon of Musical Invective. (ML 100 S.637 1989)

Harvard Dictionary of Music (ML100 .A64 2003)
This is dictionary contains everything from definitions of musical terms to musicological articles on specific subjects like "Gregorian chant", "ophicleide", "Music of Southeast Asia" or "güiro). It does not contain biographical citations. (Incidentally, a couple years ago, I had the opportunity to meet the editor, Don Michael Randel, who at the time was President of my alma mater, the University of Chicago. He is a former trumpet player.)

New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians  (ML101.U6 N48 1986)
The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians is the most comprehensive and up to date music encyclopedia in the English language. It is an excellent resource for information on individual composers, articles on various topics. (There are volumes on specific topics including American Music, Jazz, Musical Instruments, Opera, Women Composers)

Electronic resources

New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians Online - the same resource as above available online.
