Royal Academy of Music records added

The catalogue of the Royal Academy of Music’s library has been added to Copac.

The library contains over 125,000 items including considerable collections of early printed and manuscript materials. The holdings include valuable items such as a partly-holograph manuscript of Purcell’s Fairy Queen.

The special collections include a Sir Arthur Sullivan archive, a Sir Henry Wood archive, the Robert Spencer collection of early English song and music for lute and guitar and the Foyle Menuhin archive, which contains scores, books, letters, photographs and other items relating to the life of the violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

The records have been added as part of the Challenge Fund.
