Writer, musicologist. A former schoolteacher and a scholar of Elizabethan drama, J.B. Steane turned to his first love, music, in the 1960's, becoming one of the world's leading authorities on classical singers and singing. He was a regular contributor to The Gramophone magazine and a broadcaster on BBC radio, and his writings are considered cornerstones by many who love great singing. His books include The Grand Tradition, Voices: Singers and Critics, and the Singers of the Century series.
