Accessing the Catalogue

There are a number of ways to search the three volumes of the Catalogue of the Music Collection of the Dresden Catholic Court Church 1765.


A simple search can be done from any page using the search box at the top right of the page.

Alternatively, you can use the advance search by selecting this from the menu above.

Browse by composer’s last name initial

You can browse the catalogue by the composer’s last name initial using the A-Z link above. For instance, to search for Antonio Vivaldi, click on the letter ‘V’ in the list of letters at the top of the page. 

A list of all composers in the volume with last names that start with 'V' will now appear.  Information about pieces is displayed as a preview below composer name, and an incipit (beginning bars of a piece in standard music notation) is displayed to the right. If there are no composers whose last name begins with a specified letter, the following message will appear 'No data - the result was empty'. 

Accessing further information on a composer

Once you locate the composer you are looking for, move your mouse over the name (in large text) and click on it. This will take you to a page with more information about the piece.
