Music: Research Resources

Frequently Used

Search Oxford Music Online for basic facts and background information on the history of music.  While the emphasis is on Western classical music, American music and jazz are also very well covered.  Grove Dictionary of Music entries include complete works lists for composers, and the bibliographies associated with the entries  are definitive.
