Music of the United States of America (MUSA)

Preparation for publication of five volumes in the series Music of the United States of America. (36 months)

Music of the United States of America (MUSA) is a series of scholarly editions of music that aims to represent the depth and diversity of our nation's heritage by publishing musical works of exemplary artistic quality and historical significance, for the benefit of scholars, performers, students, and the general public. Since 1993, MUSA has published 31 editions (5 are multi-volume sets) and 21 sets of associated performance parts, making its editions available world-wide for study and performance. MUSA intends to reach its goal of 40 editions in print by 2026. The AMS requests funding from the NEH for MUSA to move forward the publication of 5 new critical editions of music over 3 years. NEH funds will help pay the salary and benefits of the Executive Editor (who is responsible for executing the MUSA project) and wages for Editorial Assistant student workers at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
