Music Manuscripts Online

The goal of the Music Manuscripts Online project has been to create and to provide online access to high-quality images and descriptions of music manuscripts owned by The Morgan Library & Museum.

Works by J. S. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Fauré, Haydn, Liszt, Mahler, Massenet, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Puccini, Schubert, and Schumann, among many others, can be viewed on these pages.

Images and descriptions of these manuscripts will be available on the Morgan’s Web site for study by scholars, musicians, and the general public. Over time, enhancements will be added, such as images of watermarks (see, for example, Mozart's autograph manuscript of Der Schauspieldirektor, Cary 331) and essays about the manuscripts by leading scholars.

The Music Manuscripts Online Web pages provide access to digitized versions of more than 500 music manuscripts. Additional images and descriptions will be added as the reviewing process continues. Please note that images of works still under copyright will be accessible only on-site until copyright restrictions on these works expire.

The Music Manuscripts Online project has been made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor.

Additional support has been provided by The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
