 Hsieh, Fang-Lan
2003 0-7734-6580-4 276 pages
The purpose and scope of this bibliography is to survey the literature concerning church music, primarily in publications from 1980 to the present, while including materials that have been published and serve as primary resources earlier than that. The emphasis is on Protestant church music, largely those published in the English language. The selected lists include over 700 titles, and contain citations with annotations of reference works and bibliographies. The annotations offer an indication of the scope, content, and special features of each work. This study will fill the research and reference needs of music students, scholars, and church musicians, as well as providing research and college libraries with a reference for building their church music collections.

The French Jesuits, the Wendat, and Christian Music: A Translation of Cantiques in the Wendat Language
 Steckley, John
2024 1-4955-1214-2 224 pages
This is an 8 x 10-inch, softcover book. "Cantiques are hymns with a long-held tradition behind them. They were already long-established in the Catholic church before the cantiques studied here were translated into Wendat. The Jesuits who did missionary work with the Wendat and the Wyandot from the 1630s to the late 1700s set a high standard for learning an indigenous language and writing in that language. This is true both in terms of dictionaries and grammars, as well as religious works. Their linguistic work with an indigenous language can be considered to be unmatched in North America during this period." -Dr. John Steckley
