“I know it’s most unusual
To come before you so
But I’ve found an ancient miracle
I thought that you should know
Listen to my music
And hear what it can do
There’s something here as strong as life
I know that it will reach you.” -Rush “2112”
This week I’d like to mention a wonderful reference source of information on all things musical: “The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians“. If you are searching for information on music, songs, composers, and musical styles you would do well to use this resource. “The Grove“, as we call it, is twenty-seven volumes of musical bliss. From Beethoven to jazz musicians to zithers–you can find it here. “The Grove” is just one of the many wonderful music reference books available to you here at the library. So if you have a burning question relating to music please come in, e-mail us or call and we’d be glad to help you.
See you at the library!
