Our catalogue contains details of over 40,000 items,  most of which are available for consultation. In many cases we can provide copies for sale or hire.  You may search the catalogue here.

general search will return a list of matching items in the collection (sound recordings, music scores, sets of parts, books and so on) which are not associated with (classical) music ‘works’.   This is the best search to use if you are looking for particular tunes, songs, albums, books, articles, pamphlets and so on.

classical search will return a list of matching works (usually identified by composer, title and date), with which one or more collection items may be associated. We have agreements with many composers that allow us to make copies of their unpublished music and supply to third parties.
