Not only does it contain music, music theories, and developments in Danish music, including discographies, journals, and articles covering in-print and out-of-print materials, but it also offers a users directory to all Danish musical facilities, institutions, and organizations that relate to twentieth-century Danish music. Reference tools also abound herein, as do catalogs....This slender volume packs a punch, and any library interested in music will want to have it. Scandinavian music scholars will find much delight in this tool for courses in musicology and ethnomusicology. Professional musicians will find much to recommend in this tool because many sources are hard to find."-ARBA
"McLoskey's bibliography should have a given place in major music libraries, where it may help music students and musicologists to search out more about Denmark's remarkable achievement."-Scandinavian Studies
"Unlike other volumes which are merely historical surveys or include Danish music as only a minor part of "Scandinavia music," this annotated bibliography lists sources pertaining to music, composers, and musical life since 1900 in both Denmark and the Faroe Islands....A valuable resource for both students and performers."-Choice
