Unique reference books donated to library

Petawawa musicians will benefit from the latest

donation to the public library.

A 20 volume set of New Grove Dictionary of Music

and Musicians was added to the Petawawa Public

Library's collection recently.

The unique reference work is a gift of residents

Charlotte and James Norcop.

The encyclopedias are no ordinary dictionary. They

are the most comprehensive, lucid and authoritative

guide to the enjoyment and understanding of music

ever created, according to Head

Librarian Jean Risto.

Crammed with facts, analyses, fascinating

illustrations and extensive listings of composers'

works, the New Grove is a work of unrivaled

musical scholarship by 2,400 contributors from

more than 70 countries.

Birthday gift

James Norcop, who teaches singing in Petawawa,

received the set from his wife as a 60th birthday

present.

"It's a reference work I've always

wanted to own," Norcop explained, "but not only is

it too big for our home, I wanted to share it with all

the musicians, students and music lovers in our area.

"We both decided," he added, "the library was the

most appropriate home for it."

The Norcops and members of the Petawawa

library board gathered for an official presentation

ceremony at the Civic Centre, where the New Grove

volumes were turned over to their new home.
