A basic tool for investigating nineteenth-century British journalism, including music criticism, has long been The Waterloo Directory of English Newspapersand Periodicals, 1800–1900, issued in 1976. Among the 50,000 entries of its updated series 2 (2003) are more than 200 music titles. Most of those originated in London and had brief lives. They touch every conceivable topic from church music to Wagner, madrigals to music hall, string technique to theories of history.
