Our Director of Music Publications and Editor-in-Chief of the Amy Beach Project, Chris A. Trotman, is responsible for the editing, in some cases transcribing and/or orchestrating, and engraving of all the following editions.  The revised editions were carefully edited using manuscript sources and are complete with editorial documents, such as a preface, editorial policy, list of sources and critical report.  Furthermore, the Amy Beach Project is in cooperation with Amy Beach’s estate executor, The MacDowell Colony.
