The two conductors who championed her music were Fabien Sevitzky and Leopold Stokowski, and she won 19 national awards. Her compositions, transcribed by Vincent Persichetti and others after she became blind at a young age, include works for symphony orchestra, chorus, and chamber ensembles, and solo works for organ, violin, piano, and solo voices.

In this book DiMedio presents an introductory essay on McCollins life and a catalog of compositions, with over 300 musical examples.
