Resound

 


Between 1982 and 2007, the Archives of Traditional Music edited and printed the quarterly journal/newsletter ReSOUND. An invaluable resource for ethnomusicologists, it covered new acquisitions at the Archives, current field recordings being made, and issues regarding the preservation of materials.

This collection includes Vol. 1, no. 1 (Jan. 1982) - v. 26, no. 3/4 (2007). ISSN 0749-2472
