`Not simply a dictionary, but a true encyclopedia' Gramophone
`the...appearance of The New Oxford Companion to Music is unequivocally to be welcomed, especially in the form it has taken. For all practical purposes it is a thoroughly good thing' Nicholas Spice in The London Review of Books
`as instructive, absorbing and dependable a companion as the mateur or professional musician can find between boards today' Musical Times
`two splendid volumes, which will rightly find a place in musical households for years to come' Classical Music Weekly
`I find The New Oxford Companion of enormous interest, clearly laid out, well illustrated, and quite simply a `must' for the professional and amateur musician alike.' Dame Janet Baker
`an indispensable work of reference...a thoroughly good read on subjects as diverse as education, the ear, broadcasting, hymnology, architectural acoustics, Stravinsky, Satchmo and the musical applications of colour' Sunday Times
`an absolutely indispensable reference book and I would think no library of music books complete without it' Andre Previn
`This new Oxford Companion behaves as one expects any good friend to behave: it keeps one company and so far as I can discover it does not let one down. It is entertaining, a good bedside read and certainly does not parade its scholarship, though its writers are true experts and not professional boilers-down of other people's learning.' Humphrey Burton
`How delightful to to find a serious musical reference book in which Charlie Parker rubs shoulders with the `Paris' Symphony, and the very next entry after `Palestrina' is `Palm court music'! This is an authoritative work on scholarly matters, but also a most companionable Companion.' Joseph Cooper
`comprehensive' North Star
