  This column presents a comprehensive list of new music publications that have been sent
recently by publishers and distributors for possible review in Notes. Self-published music is

vide brief listings of a broad range of new editions of music, thereby assisting in selection
and ordering for libraries or personal collections. After the listing is prepared, the publica-
tions are sent selectively to John Wagstaff, the “Music Reviews” column editor. All Web
