Manuscripts Print Page


In addition to the manuscripts found in its archival collections, the Gilmore Music Library has hundreds of individual manuscripts. They are listed in Orbis

A few highlights (several of which have been digitized):

Some of these items are shelved across the street, at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. To study them, please consult the Beinecke Library directly.

A good way to find manuscripts is to go to the  Orbis Advanced Search page, and then choose either "Music (manuscript)" or "Archives or Manuscripts" from the drop-down Type menu.
