1600 -1850

RISM series A/II: "Music manuscripts after 1600" is the most comprehensive annotated index and guide to music manuscripts produced after 1600. It brings hundreds of thousands of works by thousands of composers into one database. The manuscripts are found in over 595 libraries and archives in 31 countries. The Music manuscript database is linked to three other databases providing additional information to specific content: Composer, Library Sigla and Bibliographic Citations. (occasionally, these databases include information from other RISM series too.)
