Charles Sherman, 1929-2018

One final, sad note:  on January 30 noted Michael Haydn scholar Prof. Charles Sherman passed away at the age of 88. Charles was the editor of most of the available music of Michael Haydn, and together with T. Donley Thomas, published Johann Michael Haydn (1737-1806): A Chronological Thematic Catalogue of His Works in 1993. Charles was a fine scholar who dedicated his career to the dissemination of Michael Haydn's music, and its understanding. He was a very kind and generous man, a master teacher, and inspiring mentor. In his honor, I would like to suggest we dedicate the Spring 2019 issue (Vol. 9.1) to Michael Haydn studies. Please think about submitting items for this special issue, and other research you are working on for the Fall issue.  Consult the submissions page for guidelines.
