Music on Record: A Critical Guide, Volume 2
Volumes I and II cover orchestral music. Volume III covers every field of chamber and instrumental music, and a fourth volume surveys vocal music. The listings are by composer, based on importance and number of records available. A selective list of those records, and some collector's items, round off each entry.
