Brigham Young University Music Reference

The Music Reference Collection consists of a number of important publications published during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, primarily in the form of historical dictionaries, encyclopedias, thematic catalogues, collection and music catalogues, and music histories. Publications are predominantly written in English, French, and German and represent a broad spectrum of thought regarding the broad subject of music and its composers. All items in this collection are held by L. Tom Perry Special Collections of the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University.
