Song & Music Index

Our comprehensively indexed catalogue of music recordings/scores provides access to all songs and music works (no matter how short) and to the artists & composers to which they are linked.

If you can’t remember the full title of a song/track, you can use the title keyword option (Title – any word) on our Catalogue to search what words you do recall, including the artist’s or composer’s name.  For example, “Non so più” sung by Amelita Galli-Curci, can be searched by inserting significant words from both the title and artist’s name, such as, “più” and “Galli-Curci”.  Likewise, “I’m a lonely little petunia in an onion patch” can be searched using “petunia onion” in the same way.

You can also search larger works by using the standard ‘Title - first words’ option to search titles of books/music.

Note: The Author Search includes artists and composers, including casts of operas, shows, etc.
