Digitised Music Manuscripts Summer 2017
From Byrd to Britten and Monteverdi to Mozart, a wealth of music manuscripts are available to browse, free-of-charge, on the British Library’s Digitised Manuscripts website.
At the time of writing, you can view no fewer than 335 music manuscripts on the site. Additional content is added regularly.
Our last digitised manuscript, published just a few days ago, was Lansdowne MS 763. Dating from the fifteenth century and written on vellum, this is a collection of music treatises by various authors.
