Finzi Music Collection

Richard Mudge.  FIN M1012.M75M8
I’m pleased to report that our project to digitise the eighteenth-century music scores within our Finzi Music Collection is now complete. 140 items by composers such as William Boyce, William Felton, John Humphries, Richard Mudge, John Stanley and Charles Wesley were transcribed and arranged, usually in Gerald Finzi’s hand, in the early twentieth century and preserved in his collection. Digital copies of the scores can now be easily reached from the Special Collections website, where a new Digital Collections page has been opened. This has been a collaborative project involving both myself and Special Collections staff, who helped hugely at the scanning and web-page creation stages, and it’s satisfying to have played a small part in opening up our rather hidden music collections to a wider public.
