These are flash-based rendering of the pieces' analyses.


Luciane Beduschi & Nicolas Meeùs -- Théorie et analyses schenkériennes 
An abundant number of analyses are provided by the two scholars including original analyses by Schenker (free PDFs.)


Oxford Music Online 
The Grove Music Dictionary Online has a great article on Schenker (of course!) and an extensive bibliography. This can be a great starting point to find authoritative articles about your topic.


 Schenker Documents Online  
This contains a pretty extensive list of documents relating to Schenker or written by and/or to Schenker. There are two websites with the same name (Schenker Documents Online). It is unclear if this second one duplicates the content of the first one.
