  Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians is an encyclopedic dictionary of music and musicians, considered by most scholars to be the best general reference source on the subject in the English language.
Initially released through the vision and toil of George Grove, it was brought to a new height by Stanley Sadie and is the leading music reference source in English for both encyclopedic information and bibliographies.
It was first published in 1878 as A Dictionary of Music and Musicians in four volumes edited by Sir George Grove with an appendix and index.

Phil Goulding’s Classical Music: The 50 Greatest Composers and Their 1,000 Greatest Works is, at least, useful for those who, like myself, lack formal training but want to compare their burgeoning CD libraries to that of a fellow aficionado.
Sir George Grove (1820-1900), an English engineer and musicologist, first conceived the notion of a music dictionary in the 1850’s.
The “concise Grove” does, nonetheless, nicely complement the “full” edition; in fact, it can serve as a rough outline of, or a springboard to, the full edition.

Grove has several other dictionaries, opera and jazz among them, but if you can only handle one, this is the one to get.
The dictionary depends on a large pool of contributors, most of whom hold academic positions, and our academies are beset with insufficiently acknowledged problems.
One could never hope for a 'compleat' dictionary of music and musicians any more than one could hope for hope for a 'compleat'library of knowledge in one publication.

    For those interested in the history of singing, I recommend highly the "Singing" article in THE NEW GROVE DICTIONARY OF MUSIC AND MUSICIANS, SECOND EDITION (29 VOLUMES), edited by John Tyrrell, executive editor, copyright 2003 by Oxford University Press, Inc.
