Choice Review

The latest in a series devoted to significant composers, this volume will be a primary aid for anyone investigating the life and works of Faure. After an introductory biographic chapter, Phillips (Univ. of Guelph) provides a catalogue of Faure's compositions, evidently based on Jean Michel Nectoux's chronological listing but reordered by genres and opus numbers, followed by a catalogue of literary pieces about the works. There follows a chapter on primary sources found in seven countries, organized alphabetically by country and location. The longest chapter is the bibliography of texts regarding Faure's life, music, and other matters: exhibition catalogs, discographies, miscellany, and three "oddities." Extensive endnotes to each chapter, a series of appendixes listing collections of materials previously listed, a checklist of master's theses (Phillips includes doctoral documents in the bibliography), and an index of authors complete the volume. This basic resource is highly recommended for all music collections. R. Stahura; emeritus, Ripon College
