Music Library from the Alexander Street Press

The Recorded Sound Reference Center now offers listeners the Alexander Street Press Classical Music Library. The growing collection of 50,000-plus tracks includes recordings from the world's greatest labels including Hyperion, Bridge Records, Sanctuary Classics, Artemis-Vanguard, Hänssler Classic, Vox and many more. Coverage includes music written from the earliest times (e.g. Gregorian Chant) to the present, including many contemporary composers. Repertoire ranges from vocal and choral music, to chamber, orchestral, solo instrumental, and opera.

Researchers can access the database on a walk-in basis in Room LM113 of the Library's Madison Building. No appointment is necessary. In addition to audio tracks, the database includes liner notes and other information for many of the selections. Researchers can browse by genre, title, composer, performer, record label and search by a variety of methods. Listeners can also compile playlists of material.
