With entries for 17,000 composers, this Third Edition more than triples in size the original edition of Dr. Hendersonís directory of published music composed for the pipe organ, with biographies of the composers. By far, it is the most comprehensive resource available. Arranged alphabetically by composer with works listed in chronological order, these entries are definitive. Publishers (1,400 of them) are identified with addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail, and websites. Life dates, birth places, and biographies appear for most of the composers, celebrated and obscure. Additions include a chronological list of Parisian titulaires, along with other useful appendices (such as a comparison of the contents of the editions of the Bach organ works). 1,006 pages.
