Two new digital resources for traditional Irish music have recently become available, the Séamus Connolly Collection of Irish Music and the James Goodman manuscripts.
The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres encourages and promotes the activities of music libraries, archives and documentation centres to support and facilitate the realization of projects in music bibliography, music documentation and music library and information science at national and international levels.
"There exists a significant amount of excellent historical Swedish music that is little known and seldom heard. The aim of Swedish Musical Heritage is to increase knowledge about this music and to propagate its performance. A large part of older Swedish music is notoriously difficult to perform, simply because the existing sources are unattainable for musicians, are in illegible hand writing, or are, for various other reasons, impractical to use. Surprisingly, this is true also of music by some of Sweden’s most prominent composers.
