Thanks to Dominique René de Lerma for sharing his list of Perry's works with me. This list is compiled from Zenobia Perry's list, in consultation with Janis-Rozena Peri, and from examination of the actual scores. There are many additional works that the composer is holding back because they need revision or recopying. I have used the date that appears on the actual music, if available; otherwise I have used the date of the premiere. Zenobia Perry often listed the date the work was copyrighted with The Library of Congress on her own list of her compositions.
