The Cleveland Public Library Fine Arts Department has made accessible a new collection of sheet music of popular songs from the late 19th century to the present for piano and voice. The collection is primarily made up of gifts donated by generous patrons of the music collections in the Fine Arts Department. A few of the many titles included in this gathering of diverse donations are, Dear Little Pansy Blossom; Just kiss yourself goodbye; and Treasures that gold cannot buy.
The collection is arranged into two series. The first series contains sheet music pieces that are in the modern format. The second series contains sheet music pieces that are in the oversize format. Each series is arranged alphabetically by title and then composer. Each piece is in its own respective folder and labeled by composer (m), lyricist (l), and title. The collection will expand as more pieces are added. This collection, the Sheet music file: assorted gifts to the Cleveland Public Library Fine Arts Department, has an online finding aid to assist patrons and staff in locating titles. To view this collection or others of sheet music, visit the Cleveland Public Library Fine Arts Department on the 3rd Floor of Main Library.
