Annotated Reference Tools in MusicSeries Editor: Robert J. Kessler
This is a wide-ranging series that includes books that deal with the gathering of specific music reference material. As an example, THEMATIC CATALOGUES IN MUSIC by Barry Brook lists available music catalogues but is not a Thematic Catalogue in itself and is a valuable reference tool.
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.
