Results and Observations from 2005 Repertoire Study

My final dissertation as a doctoral student at Indiana University was a thematic catalog of top works for wind band, which would later become the book now published by Meredith Music.  The pieces selected for the original academic work resulted from a survey of significant wind band conductors, each of whom were asked to select “Yes” or “No” to each piece on the survey.  They were also allowed to write in missing works of significance.  I will attach some observations from that study, including the works that received a “Yes” from every respondent, comparisons to the results of the landmark studies by Ostling and Gilbert, and some additional information useful to interested conductors.  Enjoy!
