A comprehensive and detailed documentation of all the published and unpublished music related to Shakespeare's life and work, this five-volume set constitutes an invaluable reference tool. Encompassing music from many countries, ranging from the sixteenth century to the present, the catalog demonstrates the extent of Shakespeare's influence on culture throughout the world. The music listed includes operas, ballets, overtures, tone poems, songs, and various types of incidental music (for stage, radio, film, and television productions). Entries for each composition provide information on voice and instrument requirements, publication history, and data on first performance. The first three volumes deal with music and musical stage-direction for the plays (arranged alphabetically) and with settings of the sonnets and narrative poems. The fourth volume contains indexes of Shakespeare's titles and lines, the titles of compositions, and composers, arrangers, editors, librettists. The final volume provides an entirely new research aid: a selected, annotated bibliography of writings, in various languages, on the subject of Shakespeare and music.
