Music of the United States of America (MUSA): A National Series of Scholarly Editions

Preparation for publication of volumes 27-30 in the Music of the United States of America series and editorial work on two additional volumes. (36 months)

Applying the principles of critical editing to a variety of American idioms, including jazz, psalmody, popular song, nineteenth- and twentieth-century symphonic and chamber music, art song, Native American ceremony, and the Broadway show, MUSA (Music of the United States of America) is devoted to expanding the legacy of American music available for study and performance. MUSA is publishing a 40-volume series of scholarly editions of American music. In addition to musical notation, each volume includes a substantial essay and a critical editorial apparatus. By bringing notated music and scholarly interpretation together in the same volume, each MUSA volume seeks to place the sounds of music making in the United States within the context of the nation's cultural life. Founded in 1988, MUSA is a collaborative venture administered by the American Musicological Society through its Committee on the Publication of American Music (COPAM) and is published by A-R Editions.
