About The Collection

The British Music Collection

The British Music Collection is a remarkable resource consisting of over 30,000 scores and recordings from contemporary British composers. The majority of the collection dates from 1960 onwards, but it also encompasses material stretching back to 1900. It is publicly accessible and located in a bespoke search room within the Music Library of the University of Huddersfield. This online catalogue also provides access to significant digitised content.

The collection is made available for reference only and cannot be loaned or removed from the library. Access is open to the general public, as well as university staff and students.

To arrange a visit, please contact Huddersfield Music Library via the British Music Collection website. Please indicate the nature of your request so that we can best help you.
