Four Anthologies of Musical Ekphrasis

While I am thinking about it, let me link to the four best anthologies I've found so far of poems about music. Three come from the nifty little books in the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets Series. All are worth owning if you are at all interested in musical ekphrasis.

Music Lover's Poetry Anthology, ed. by Helen Hardy Houghton and Maureen McCarthy Draper
Music's Spell: Poems about Music and Musicians, ed. by Emily Fragos
Jazz Poems, ed. by Kevin Young
Blues Poems, ed. by Kevin Young
