KIRKUS REVIEW

These are brief sketches of the lives of American composers from Francis Hopkineon to Aaron Copland. Useful, but uninspired, the collection contains some early musicians and perhaps two or three recent ones not included in the C. L. Bakeless Story Lives of American Composers (Stokes, $2.50), but the individual biographies are not nearly as interestingly done as in the Bakeless collection.
