During his twenty-year career as a musicologist, Arthur Wenk published books on Claude
Debussy (Claude Debussy and the Poets;
Claude Debussy and Twentieth-Century Music) and music bibliography (the
prize-winning Analyses of
Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Music and Musical Resources for the Revised Common Lectionary).
Later he drew on his experiences as a university professor, church organist,
choral conductor and pianist to produce a series of mystery novellas featuring
musicologist Axel Crochet as sleuth: (The Quarter Note Tales; New Quarter
Note Tales: Axel in Quebec; Axel Crochet: Musicologist-at-Large; and Quarter
Note Tales #4: An Axel Crochet Trilogy). Other books include A
Guide to the Bookstores of Toronto, La Musique et les grandes epoques de l'art, and Camerata:
A Guide to Organizing and Directing Small Choruses.
Dr. Wenk's subsequent careers as calculus teacher and psychotherapist have led
to public lectures on graphing calculators, Geometer's Sketchpad, parenting and
communication, separation and divorce, opera, western culture, and film. Since
his retirement in 2014 Arthur Wenk lives in North Fort Myers, Florida and
Lagoon City, Ontario.
