What is a collected edition?

Collected Editions:  Collected editions are the outcome of a long scholarly effort to publish an accurate and complete edition of a significant composer's works. Two famous ones, the new collected editions of the works of J.S. Bach and W.A. Mozart, were begun in the 1950s and finished only in 2007. Painstaking research and editorial expertise make these editions a valuable part of any music collection. In some cases they may be the only source for a given work in this library.

To browse the Howe Library collection of collected editions, go to the 3rd floor to the QUARTO M3 section (off to the left once you reach the 3rd floor by the main stairs).  Collected editions are in alphabetical order by composer last name.  Indexes to collected editions are in the database Oxford Music Online.
