"The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians" is an authority on all aspects of music. It is widely used by academics and the professional community. First published in 1980, it is a successor to the five-volume "Dictionary of Music and Musicians" edited by Sir George Grove in 1878-83. During the 1980s and 1990s scholarship has advanced, new composers and new performers have emerged, new perspectives have transformed traditional thinking in many areas, and non-Western and popular music attract interest among scholars and researchers worldwide. For these reasons, a team of over 60 has since 1993 been preparing the second edition. Features include 20 million words, 29,000 articles, over 4000 contributors from all parts of the world. New features include: being revised throughout; new biographies, topics, 20th-century composers and 20th-century performers; world music; jazz, rock, popular and light music; and instruments and their history. There is an equivalent on-line service with links images, sound and related sites.
