"Diane Peacock Jezic, a pianist, teacher, musicologist, mother and feminist, died in 1989, leaving behind this book as a legacy of her dedication to women composers and their music. Beginning with Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) of the Medieval Period and finishing with six present-day composers, such as Ellen Zwilich, Women Composers provides a historical recounting of each composer, with a biographical summary, a musical example and a selected list of works. This is a long overdue resource for music scholars, aficionados and others who want to establish women's place in musical history. Elizabeth Wood, who took on the project of producing this second edition, adds even more on the accomplishments of women in music spanning over 900 years. Discover the prolific herstory of each woman while listening to the book's companion cassettes featuring the works of all 25 composers. An engaging combination."--The WomanSource Catalog & Review : Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by SH.

In this ground breaking reference book Sophie Fuller provides accessible, original and extensive information in an A to Z of over a hundred women composers from Britain and the United States, covering the period from 1629 right up to the contemporary scene. Each entry gives a flavour of the composer's milieu as well as her music, to provide a fascinating insight into both her life and creative works. Fuller examines the reasons why women composers have been so neglected, reassesses their work in the light of recent scholarship, both musicological and biographical and provides a critical frame of reference in which to place both the women and their music.
