Festschrift SeriesSeries Editor: Robert J. Kessler
This series offers the peers, students, and collaborators of eminent scholars the opportunity to honor them and recognize their accomplishments and contributions to the discipline. By 2012 Pendragon Press will have published 26 such volumes, collections of essays usually organized around the scholarly concerns of the honoree. The list of such honorees includes not only our foremost leaders in the field, but also the beloved guides of lesser fame in the development of music scholarship. The quality of the contributions is of the highest level.
Bob Kessler, Managing Editor of Pendragon Press, has been with the company since its creation in 1977. Previously he had been a songwriter, working for Frank Loesser as a contract writer, having Off-Broadway shows, movie lyrics, TV series, and many recording to his credit. With Claire Brook he founded Pendragon in an effort to make available to the musicological world those book projects which, though worthy, would not otherwise be published. Apparently, this filled a needed lacuna as Pendragon’s backlist is now approaching 400 titles. Bob lives in Hillsdale, New York, with his wife, Janet Lincoln, close by the offices of Pendragon, and looks forward to many years of fruitful labor in the vineyards of scholarship.
