The Conservatoire’s archives hold a large number of original music manuscripts together with rare and early published music. This includes original manuscript music by Sir Ernest Bullock, Frank Spedding, Philip Halstead and Sir Philip Ledger amongst others, as well as important and signed published music scores by Hindemith, Handel, Bach and many others.

Work has begun on cataloging the Conservatoire’s extensive early and important music collection, which includes both original manuscripts and music published before the year 1800. Visit our Early & Important Music Collection catalogue.
