Scores and libretti
The Library's collection of 100+ libretti and nearly one thousand scores.
The Library has a collection of 100+ libretti and nearly a thousand scores. The scores include a large number of Musicals, Anthologies, Composers, Singers, scores by time period and scores by genre (Broadway, Jazz, folk songs, music hall etc.) There are also a small number of scores or practice books for a range of instruments.
A lot of work was done cataloguing each song title in the collected works, so you can now search the library catalogue by song title and discover where individual items can be located.
The scores have been catalogued as 7-day loans, but under the current circumstances we can be flexible about this. These items can’t be reserved from the catalogue, so you may find it helpful to browse the list of holdings in the links below and e-mail staff details of what you would like to loan.
