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.

Organ Music Treasures

The Gilmore Music Library is home to a wealth of organ music, in manuscripts and early printed editions, ranging from J.S. Bach and his circle, to Yale composers such as Charles Ives and Paul Hindemith. This exhibition has been organized to coincide with the Northeast Regional Convention of the American Guild of Organists in New Haven. Take a look at our online exhibit here...

The staff and collections of Oral History of American Music (OHAM) have moved from their previous location on Prospect Street to Sterling Memorial Library (SML). The move to SML situates OHAM just down the hall from the Benjamin Franklin collection, the Boswell Papers, and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies. The collection will be more easily accessed, and the OHAM staff will be better able to use library services and to take part in the larger central campus community.
