We are all in John Bawden’s debt for this outstanding resource, which will save all his conducting colleagues enormous time, effort and frustration in their concert planning processes. The front cover describes the book as "The essential reference book for Choral Directors and Librarians". It is certainly that, and much more.
I'm sitting here planning the next [concert] and finding it, thanks to your brilliant Directory which is open in front of me, 125% easier than ever it was before. I had the old NFMS choral catalogue, but this in a different league. Congratulations and thank you.
No choral conductor should be without a copy of John Bawden's Directory of Choral Music, already an indispensable part of my programme-planning. To have so much accurate and clearly laid out information, quickly and readily available at one's fingertips, is absolutely invaluable. I can't imagine life without it!
