A page from a Graduale Romanum

The Gilmore Music Library is rich of all kinds of rare books and manuscripts including this Graduale Romanum. The Graduale was used by monks of the Congregation of St. Justina, of the Order of St. Benedict, at the monastery of St. Peter of Saviliano. It dates from the 15th century.

In Focus

The Gilmore Music Library will be undergoing a renovation project commencing June 1, which will continue through mid-December 2016. We will not be closing our doors during the renovation, but instead will be working around the construction and will continue to offer the majority of our regular services. 

Robert Shaw (1916-1999) was the most renowned choral conductor of the 20th century, and a major orchestral conductor as well. He would have turned 100 on April 30, 2016. A new exhibition dedicated to Shaw will be on display at the Gilmore Music Library from April 6th through May 27th 2016.
