Abstract

Since 2005, Western’s Music Library (CDN-Lu) has been the beneficiary of regular installments of a magnificent gift of printed music published between 1760 and 1850. Why installments? The Drs. Whitby, ardent chamber musicians, are still actively playing and enjoying portions of their collection! Over the course of six decades of collecting, they have assembled an extraordinarily rich library which, thanks to digitization, is being made available to music scholars, professional musicians, and music-making amateurs alike via the Internet Archive.

[BM1]Since there’s at least 1 year (2015) in which the Library didn’t receive an accrual, let’s say “regular.”
