Anniversaries We’re Celebrating

International in scope, this open-ended series features short, readable books about women composers. These volumes represent the broadest possible spectrum of music that women have created, in all styles and genres from classical to popular to traditional, from early to contemporary, from secular to sacred, from private to public, from the great range of regional, social, ethnic, and other communities that have shaped their experience. Taken together, the Women Composers books aim to answer the question, What music have women created, and why and how and with what result?
