This catalog of works, organized alphabetically by composer, details the compositions of fifty-four modern British composers born between 1893 and 1923. Volume three covers composers from Elizabeth Maconchy to David Wynne. Compositions are listed chronologically and include pertinent information about the performance, year of composition, music history, first recordings, and original manuscript location. Concert music is listed separately from documentary and feature films and from music composed for radio, television or stage. As a tool for further research, this catalog will appeal to soloists, chamber musicians and orchestral players as well as to scholars of classical music. A selective bibliography is included for each composer. Each volume includes a title index organized by composer.
