Classical Music Library

Connect to Resource

Collection of 60,000-plus tracks, including recordings from the world's greatest labels including Hyperion, Bridge Records, Sanctuary Classics, Artemis-Vanguard, H�nssler 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.


We add repertoire according the MLA publication "A Basic Music Library" to ensure Classical Music Library will include at least one recording of each work listed. We provide multiple recordings of most major works, to enable comparative listening. Classical Music Library also includes many works not in the MLA list, and is increasingly adding recordings by great performers and composers.

You can also access the collection through the Music and Performing Arts interface, which allows you to search across all of the Alexander Street Press music collections from one site.
