Foley (Department of Word and Worship, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago), together with a group of able consultants and contributors from diverse religions, has produced a concise but remarkably broad dictionary of musical terms and persons related to the worship of numerous faith traditions, especially those practiced in North America. As the editor indicates, this volume "pays particular attention to the religious and ritual aspects of music." Signed entries include extensive cross-references, and brief bibliographies are attached to the most important entries. Excellent binding and exceptionally clear type make this volume a pleasure to consult. Highly recommended for all libraries supporting sacred music. L. Smith emerita, University of Western Ontario
