Music / Women's Studies

This classic anthology combines source readings with interpretive essays and personal portraits to illuminate the rich yet neglected history of women in music

The voices of women such as Abbess Hildegard of Bingen, Clara Schumann, and Marian Anderson resonate as they emerge from the wide range of materials in this volume, which includes letters, diaries, poems, novels, and reviews that reveal women's achievements not only as patrons and educators but also as composers and performers.

Reviews / Endorsements

Women in Music has been a core resource for scholarship and teaching since it first appeared in 1982. Out of print for too long, Women in Music can now take its rightful place again in the center of a growing field of gender and music research, allowing women to speak for themselves.”—Susan C. Cook, University of Wisconsin School of Music
