thoughtful, emotionally fleet and powerfully recorded
published works of Martin Shaw
Shaw kept a log book, in his own handwriting,
which listed almost everything he
had published. It is not quite complete;
the following list is based on it
but includes a few things which he
forgot to mention and certain other
publications which for the sake of
completeness it seems right to mention.
A few minor and occasional derivatives
from Songs of Praise are omitted.
The order is, so far as can be ascertained,
chronological; the assignment ofworks
to years, in any case, can be trusted.
