"Bradley's guide is truly international in scope, providing details about songs by important composers in most Western languages. Essential. Purchase by major academic and public music libraries is strongly urged." -- Choice
"There are a few half-hearted attempts available to identify particular texts, some with relation to a single composer's works, but nothing on the scale of this index." -- Library Journal
"The material itself is organized in a single alphabetical sequence that uses typeface and quote marks to distinguish the different kinds of information--composer, poet, title, and first line--which makes it easy to use. This admirable accomplishment is a welcome addition to the reference shelf, for which performers, teachers, scholars, and students will be immensely grateful." -- Library Journal
"Bradley has put together an invaluable reference tool about poetry in music. Meticulous attention to detail is evident on every level, beginning with a clear explanation of how the 125 composers were chosen. Highly recommended." -- Library Journal
"This book will be a boon to scholars and students of the art song, to singers, accompanists and coaches. It will also, arguably, be a book used by literary scholars and students. It will provide in a handy, modern publication in convenient form the kind of information scholars have had heretofore to dig out of all of the out-of-the-way sources that the author herself has laboriously consulted over the years. It will make it much easier for performers to locate music they wish to program. There is no comparable reference tool." -- Rufus Hallmark, Music Department Chair, Rutgers University
