Find Scores of Music by Black Classical Composers!
Based on Professor Richard Greene's excellent site, "Classical Music Recordings of Black Composers", " Black Composers - Scores" provides links of composers' names to library holdings of scores of Black composers of classical music. Clicking on a name will yield the composer's scores in Worldcat, the combined online catalogs of thousands of libraries worldwide. Clicking on the title of a work will show the libraries that own the work. Musicians wishing to perform a work can check if a local library has the score to a particular work, or request a score on interlibrary loan. It is our hope that this tool will encourage increasing numbers of performances of this beautiful and overlooked repertoire. Enjoy!
