Sir Arthur Bliss was one of England's most renowned twentieth-century composers. This bio-bibliography provides a brief biography prepared with the assistance of the composer's widow. It then presents a complete list of works and performances, classified by genre and arranged alphabetically by title of composition. Each entry contains a list of premiere performances, with references to commentaries from performance reviews cited in the bibliography. Brief details are also given concerning original manuscripts and their location. The next section contains a discography of commercially and privately produced sound recordings. An annotated bibliography of writings by the composer and about him and his music follows. Annotations are often in the form of quotations from performance reviews. The bibliography concludes with appendices providing alphabetical and chronological listings of Bliss's works and a complete index of names and titles.
