The editors of MUSA volumes, by engaging with the full range of American musical practice in both written and oral traditions, take on challenges not typically addressed by scholarly editions. MUSA publications build upon the strengths of traditional approaches to musical research through the preparation on critically-edited scores. Furthermore, each MUSA volume begins with a contextual essay that extends the scholarly discourse in the field of American music and introduces the musical art of America to a wide variety of readers, including performers, scholars, and students.
