Periodicals | The Canadian Encyclopedia




The first Canadian periodicals to pay attention to music were early literary journals such as The Montreal Museum: or Journal of Literature and Arts (Montreal 1832-3), Le Fantasque (Quebec 1837-45, 1848-9), Literary Garland (Montreal 1838-51), Le Ménestrel (Quebec 1844-5), The Anglo-American Magazine (Toronto 1852-5), and L'Écho du cabinet de lecture paroissial (Montreal 1859-75). Many of their volumes included pieces of music and an occasional article or concert review. Music occupied a regular if not dominant position in magazines devoted to a combined coverage of the arts, beginning with L'Artiste (1860) and Les Beaux-Arts (1863-4), both published in Montreal. Similar partnerships were evident in many later publications, eg, Arcadia, The Arion, Canadian Review of Music and Art, Curtain Call, Le Nigog, LePasse-Temps, and Qui? and continued in the 1970s in Performing Arts in Canada. The first exclusively musical periodicals were George F. Graham'sCanadian Musical Review (Toronto 1856) and Adélard J. Boucher's Le Canada musical (Montreal 1866-7, 1875-81). Their fate - a short life-span - was shared by many of the several hundred periodicals listed on the following pages.

Fortunately, more than a few periodicals have been able to survive for relatively long periods. Among those of general appeal that lasted nine years or longer were La Lyre, Musical Canada, and Le Passe-Temps; among those of some longevity and still being published in 1990 were Aria, Canadian Musician, Coda, Chansons d' aujourd'hui, Country Music News, Live, Music Express, Music Magazine, Musicworks, Opera Canada, Performing Arts in Canada, Sonances, Son hi-fi vidéo and Sound & Vision House organs such as the various magazines of the Canadian Music Centre, JMC (YMC), TCM and RCMT, the TSO News, VSO, and Western Music News have had long runs. The same can be said of several magazines addressed to special professional groups, Anacrusis, Canada Country, The Canadian Bandmaster, TheCanadian Music Educator, the Canadian Music Trades Journal, Harmonie-Québec, OCSM Newsletter, Radio-activité, The Record, The Recorder, La Revue Saint-Grégoire, and RPM, as well as publications of musicians' union locals. Financial and editorial stability has been enjoyed also by fully subsidized journals such as TheCanadian Composer, and TheMusic Scene, backed by CAPAC and PRO Canada respectively, (and later merged as Canadian Composer, backed by SOCAN), by Musicanada, sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre and later revived by the Canadian Music Council, and to a more limited extent by the journals and newsletters of professional societies of teachers, ethnomusicologists, organists, therapists, manufacturers, and other groups. While the 1980s did see the decline of some general coverage periodicals such as Musicanada, a large number of new specialized publications, including Bluegrass Canada Magazine, Circuit, Consort, Contact, Country, Fan Club, Folk-lore, Jazz Report, Muscien québécois, Musick, Network, Streetsound, and Ultra haute fidelité/Ultra High Fidelity Magazine, have emerged.

Canadian music periodicals have adopted many formats, achieved widely different levels of sophistication, and proceeded from a variety of editorial and critical attitudes. Most, however, have sought to promote recognition of Canadian achievement and discussion of vital issues. Many have succeeded in contributing to the development of taste and the spread of knowledge. Even the least have helped document musical history under the immediate impact of events, though reporting in earlier times often was limited in coverage and regional in bias. The historian's work is aided greatly when a certain period is well documented by periodicals and suffers when it is not. The period 1962-5 (between the demise of The Canadian Music Journal and the beginning of The Canadian Composer), for instance, is poorly documented by Canadian music periodicals. Unfortunately consultation of many periodicals is made difficult by their rareness on library shelves. To help alleviate this problem, in the 1980s, some periodicals began to appear on microform, including L'Art musical, Audio Scene Canada, Canadian Composer, Canadian Journal of Music, Canadian Musician, Coda, Musical Canada, Music Scene, Musicworks, Le Passe-Temps, and Piano Canada.

Indexing also improves access to periodicals. Several Canadian music periodicals are indexed by the Canadian Magazine Index and/or the Canadian Periodical Index, including Canadian Composer, Canadian Musician, Coda, Musicworks, Opera Canada, Performing Arts, and Music Scene. In addition to these, the Canadian Folk Music Bulletin and Journal, Canadian Music Educator, Canadian University Music Review, Musicanada, Sonances, and Music Magazine are indexed by Music Index.. Point de rèpere indexes Aria, Compositeur canadien, and Sonances. Furthermore the National Library of Canada maintains the Canadian Musicians Index/Index des musiciens canadiens covering all the Canadian music periodicals received by the Music Division. Magazines have occasionally published their own index issues including À l'écoute (Feb 1991), Alla breve (Fall 1989), Canadian Band Journal (Fall 1989), Canadian Folk Music Journal (no. 17, 1989), Canadian Musician (Apr 1989), Music Magazine (Oct 1987), Ostinato (Jan 1991), Sonances (Summer 1989), and Yé-Yé (Dec 1989).

Canadian music magazines face problems common to magazines everywhere and also some that are unique to the nature of this country. In early days, as in recent ones, opening editorial statements conveyed idealism and an urgent sense of purpose, and the reasons for failure also have remained much the same. Often they were economic - the difficulty of competing with well-established foreign magazines, and the small market for subscriptions and advertising sales - but also technical, in particular the problems encountered in gathering news reports in a vast country. Some of the failures may be blamed on publishers' lack of judgment - launching magazines without securing funds and copy for at least the first year, starting in the face of local competition, championing parochial causes, attempting to make do with spare-time editors, and other such factors. In addition, the indifference of readers and of Canadian writers (many early magazines had to fill their pages with reprinted articles and news items from foreign publications) must share the blame for the failure of many Canadian music magazines.

With the escalating costs of paper, printing, and postage from the 1960s on, recessions in the early 1980s and 1990s, and the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax in 1991, financial assistance became an imperative in the survival techniques of music magazines, and in response the Canada Council, the OAC, the MACQ, and other national and provincial arts-support organizations developed helpful subsidy programs.

Despite these problems new Canadian music periodicals continue to appear and many long established titles, such as those listed above, are self-supporting and have achieved national and international recognition. The development of desk top publishing has helped the appearance and eased the production difficulties of many publications. One trade magazine The Record, is available electronically. As the 1990s begin, music periodicals in their totality continue to promote, document, reflect, and enrich musical life in Canada. However, a disquieting phenomenon has developed in the last quarter of the 20th century, and not in Canada alone: the needs of specialized interest groups have been well satisfied, but a large void has developed at the middle of the scale between the extremes of academic style and 'easy reading,' of promotion and criticism, of documentation and opinion, of basic issues and ephemeral concerns. Since the demise of the CMCouncil's Musicanada, news of a general nature and discussion of broad issues, and hence contact between the main interest groups, has been hard to find.

The following list of Canadian periodicals is arranged in alphabetical order by title. Indicated are title and significant title changes; parent organization in the case of house organs; place(s) and dates of publication; normal frequency of publication; relationship to preceding, succeeding, and absorbed periodicals. Annotations are added when helpful in clarifying the predominant subject matter and language. Completeness of information has been difficult to achieve because complete runs of many periodicals cannot be found in any library and because others lack proper identification of place, issue number, or date of publication. Besides music periodicals proper, magazines devoted only partly to music have been included when music is a regular component (ie, the subject of more than an occasional article or a review column). Newsletters and bulletins are included if their content may be of general interest or documentary value. Excluded are concert programs in the form of magazines, annual reports of organizations, academic calendars, catalogues such as Acquisitions put out by the CMCentre, Audio-Key, Film/video Canadiana, and similar publications.
