This site is dedicated to vintage sheet music or musical scores. The references to rare and nostalgic remain relevant but references to current and modern music will disappear from here.
There is still the question of what is meant by vintage. The definition is moveable. What is vintage depends on the age of who is listening. I will treat the term liberally. As a guide I will regard The Rolling Stones’ music as vintage and that of any of their contemporaries or predecessors.
There will be two main strands to the site. Physical sheet music – generally pre-used that is for vintage or classical music.
Some of the music is over one hundred years old so condition varies. Music will show varying signs of wear, tears, commonly users notation or their names on the front. In all cases the music itself will be readable. Nothing will be listed where any of the music itself is illegible.
A look at the shop pages will illustrate that there is a variety of genres; pop music of its time; show tunes; classical including full scores; dance music; marches. The front covers of some of the sheet music are works of art; probably some are collectable. Music for example by A T Paull has become more desirable for the drama of the graphics than the quality of the music.
There is still a lot of music to add from my collection. Music will be added each day so please keep coming back to see what changes.
The second aim of the site is to provide articles of interest. Your contributions will be very welcome.
