I just got this link emailed to me by my friend Norris. Looks promising.

Music for the Nation, American Sheet Music, 1870-1885
The Library of Congress provides another fine online resource with a new American Sheet Music site. Thousands of pieces of sheet music registered for copyright during the post-Civil War era. Search by author, title or subject.

Thanks Alice, that's a good one.
I found that Henry Clay Work had even written a sequel to "Grandfather's Clock", that I'd never heard of before.
I wish they were all readable, however. Many aren't, even on my reasonably high resolution monitor.

Alice, I can't get this URL to work. Is it exactly right above? I tried every logical variation I could think of, but no luck.

Try it again, Chet. I made it clickable, and it seems to work.

well, I can report that the images in the .tiff format are easy enough to read!..(big, though)..but you need to save them.. and read them with one of the graphics viewers that will handle them..( they give some suggestions on a 'how to' page) I used Thumbs Plus, and CompuPic..I have only just begun to look thru the site...(lots of pics of lots of stuff...!!)

here's a link giving the scopp on 3 other tiff viewers which plug into browser. (spent the extra $10 to upgrade free CPCview so prints the individual parts direct from the Net without any "downloading, saving, importing to graphic program, etc")

http://www.dot.co.pima.az.us/gis/webdev/tiff.htm

[thanks Alice for the link. besides the vocals, found 53 brass band charts, many of which are arranged for the instrumentation of our local "period" band; and we are playing them! It's just so hard to find (& then decipher)old band arrangements from that time. Again, thanks.]

I've always had trouble making links to sheet music and other information in the American Memory Collection. If you go to a page at American Memory and copy-paste the URL from your browser's address bar, you'll come up with a string of characters eleventy-seven inches long. Jim Dixon heard my cries of anguish, and sent me this:

    From: Jim Dixon
    To: Joe Offer
    Title: Linking to Library of Congress


    How to link to any page at the Library of Congress site:

    First view the page you want to link to, and then, on your Windows Explorer toolbar, click View, then Source. When the new window opens, at the bottom of the page you will see a message something like this:

    <!-- The following URL will result in display of this document -->
    <!-- http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/aasm:@field(NUMBER+@band(rpbaasm+0521)) -->

    Copy and paste that URL into your link.

    I think I learned this from a FAQ page somewhere at the LOC site.

    Feel free to post this info on the Mudcat FAQ page, or the HTML PermaThread, or whatever you consider appropriate.
