Laurel Myers Hurst, Kent State University at Geauga, was awarded a $5,000 GRAMMY Foundation Preservation Assistance grant to benefit the El-Dabh Sound Art Project, which enables assessment of the long-term needs of the Halim El-Dabh collection. El-Dabh is a Kent State Professor Emeritus and internationally renowned composer. El-Dabh pioneered the fields of electronic music composition, sound art, ethnomusicological research and black studies. He has retained a vast quantity of audio- and video-recorded concerts and field research. Completing organization and annotation of his collected life's work while El-Dabh, at 93 years of age, can provide insight and guidance is critical for future analysis of 20th-century musical literature.

Additional comments: Fein was editor and translators were David Raybin and Jan Ziolkowski. This publication is a multivolume edition-translation of London, British Library MS Harley 2253, one of the most important literary books to survive from medieval England. In rarity, quality and abundance, its collection of Middle English secular, religious and political poetry is unrivaled. A good deal of its other contents have not been printed previously. Modern English translations of the non-English contents were prepared collaboratively by Fein with David Raybin of Eastern Illinois University (for the French) and Jan Ziolkowski of Harvard University (for the Latin). All three volumes (1,429 pp.) are also available in digital editions published by Robbins Library Digital Projects, University of Rochester.
