For the last 10 years, CCM professor Mary Sue Morrow has dedicated herself to completing her late mentor’s series of books.

Weighing in at nearly 900 pages, the Symphonic Repertoire – Volume I may be the first of its kind. Other literature on the 18th century symphony just skims the surface of the era.

“We looked at symphonies by many different composers,” says Morrow. “Mozart and Haydn were not the only symphony composers in the 18th century.” The massive volume includes essays by Morrow and her co-editor, Bathia Churgin, and 20 other scholars.
