Designed to list all titles of works in the "Music-in-Print Series," this "Master Title Index" is a single alphabetical listing. Each title is followed by a reference number or series of numbers which indicates the volume or volumes of the "Music-in-Print Series" in which the catalog entries can be found. The key for the series can be found on the reverse side of the title page. This volume can be especially helpful in locating traditional pieces, which are often listed by title only. On the other hand, generic titles, such as "Two Songs," produce an abundance of entries. The "Master Title Index" lists all titles exactly as they appear in the volumes indexed--and in those volumes' sources. As a result, entries still reflect the weaknesses of the publishers' catalogs. (The reviewer of the companion Music in Print Master Composer Index (CH, Apr'90) made the same observation.) For example, in this title index, some articles have been rotated to the ends of titles ("Captain of Sunshine, The"), but many of the foreign articles have not ("Das War in Meinen Kindertagen"). For quick location within the volume, alphabetical headers at the top of each page would have been a nice addition. Nevertheless, for all music libraries owning the series, this volume is indispensable. -K. A. Abromeit, Wright State University
