NewMusicBox » A Helpful List
This article appears on the website NewMusicBox.org which as you might guess specializes in the work of living composers. The list spurs important conversation about female composers that are active today and has already generated some response articles on the website.
It would be interesting to see your response if you have the time to investigate some of these composers or others profiled on this website. The scope of "new" (for us anything written in the last 50 years or so) is so far off from what is going on in serious (classical) music that it would be surprising if we did anything that made it to their list. This might spur a whole conversation about "traditional" church music and it's connection to current culture.
