Abstract: Ethel Smyth (1858-1944) was well-known in her native England and in parts of Germany, and her music was acclaimed during her lifetime. Today, she is relatively unknown, her music seldom performed. Unfortunately, much of her music is out of print. The purpose of this document is two-fold. First, it is hoped that the reader will gain an awareness of and an appreciation for Smyth's work. Second, the document is designed to draw attention to one work in particular, her Mass in D. This document is organized in the form of a critical/ analytical performance guide for the Mass in D. The material included should prove helpful to a conductor planning a performance of the Mass in D. The Mass is in print and has recently received several performances.
