Women Composers Collection now online

The University of Michigan Library has completed digitization of its Women Composers Collection, which contains approximately 2800 musical works by women composers. With the exception of several dozen 18th-century works, the music is almost evenly divided between the 19th and 20th centuries. The collection contains music in a variety of genres; songs and solo piano music predominate, but choral, orchestral, dramatic, and chamber music are also represented. Approximately 80% of the works are in the public domain and thus are available in full text.
