Provenance

The project had been designed with the express intention of donating the materials to the Sibley Music Library, an intention communicated to the composers who were contacted.

Restrictions on Use

There are no restrictions on use of the collection except for those imposed by the provisions of the U.S. Copyright Law and its revisions. Logistically, a service copy will be generated in response to any research inquiry involving any of the collection’s audio holdings; that workflow will be managed according to the availability of engineering personnel within the Eastman School’s Office of Technology and Media Production.

Associations

The collection’s most explicit association within the Sibley Music Library is its earlier counterpart, the Women Composers Collection. The Women Composers Collection II came about in exactly the same manner as did the earlier collection, which was the gift of Edward J. Hines in July, 1995.

 

 

 

 DESCRIPTION OF SERIES

The collection has been subdivided into three series according to physical format. The arrangement of items within each series is alphabetical by the composer’s surname.

 

Series 1, Scores

These holdings represent the musical compositions submitted by the individual composers, in whatever format (manuscript facsimile, computer-generated via software, or published).

Series 2, Sound Recordings

These holdings represent the recordings that accompanied the scores submitted by the individual composers. The holdings vary in terms of their representation: some recordings represent no more and no less than the scores that those recordings accompanied; certain other recordings represent selections by the given composers in addition to the target works represented in the scores that they accompanied. Unless otherwise indicated in the finding aid, the recordings cited herein are in the compact disc format.

Series 3, Correspondence and Biographical Information

These holdings represent the written correspondence and other information submitted by the individual composers. According to the guidelines of the project, each student wrote to a given composer and sent a set of questions to be answered. As reflected by the holdings, many of the composers responded by way of letters in whatever length, often accompanied by other documents, such as a business card, a copy of a C.V., and/or copies of published reviews.  The documents are arranged under the name of the given composer, with the overall sequence being alphabetical by composer’s surname.
