Syracuse University Libraries has a circulating collection of over 34,000 volumes of printed music, including study scores, vocal scores, chamber performance sets, and scholarly critical editions. The collection focuses on European and American art music from the 17th through 21st centuries (i.e. "classical music") and musical theater vocal scores, with a growing collection of folk and popular vocal music from various regions and ethnicities.
Musical works can be published as individual pieces in a larger score collection, or they can be published as a stand-alone score. Also, like you see on YouTube, published scores can have a lot of variations in how the publisher chooses to print the title on the score. When the library catalogs a score, we transcribe what the publisher called the score, but we also add a "preferred title" that helps users find scores better.
