Title: Cyril Scott (1879-1970)
Post by: Albion on February 21, 2019, 12:56:36 pm
A superb new book has been published covering the range of music and literature of Cyril Scott, The Cyril Scott Companion, edited by Desmond Scott, Lewis Foreman and Leslie De'ath all of whom have worked tirelessly to get Scott's music back before the public. There are also significant contributions from Martyn Brabbins and Martin Yates who have revived Scott's major scores on Chandos and Dutton respectively. This is a substantial tome at over 700 pages and beautifully produced with many rare photographs and musical examples:

I payed just over 36 on Amazon... well worth the investment.
