The published works of Martin Shaw


Martin 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.



EH The English Hymnal P.D. Percy Dearmer
G.S. Geoffrey Shaw R.V.W. Ralph Vaughan Williams
OBC The Oxford Book of Carols SP Songs of Praise


C Curwen MT Musical Times
Cr Cramer N Novello
GFS Girls' Friendly Society OUP Oxford University Press
