Solo Music Reference Collection

The Solo Music Reference Collection is housed in the Choral/Band/Orchestral Library (Room 134, Talbot College), and contains music for solo instruments or solo instrument with keyboard accompaniment. Most of the music is not standard repertoire; an interesting assortment of unusual and twentieth-century music may be found in this collection. These scores may be signed out from the C/B/O Library for a 28-day loan, and can be renewed.

The Solo Music Reference Collection does not appear on the Western Libraries catalogue. It was originally listed in the Western Pamphlets Microfiche Index, but that is no longer available. However, each numbered section is arranged alphabetically, or "cuttered" by composer's surname. Go down to the C/B/O and check the shelf. Access to the collection is restricted to the hours of opening of the C/B/O Library.

Note: The SMRC should be used to supplement the music found in the main collection of the Music Library. Please consult the handout for your own instrument for assistance in locating materials in the Music Library, or the Music Reference Librarian.
