    Summary:

    The Tams-Witmark Music Library was established in 1925 through the merger of the Arthur W. Tams Music Library and the rental library of M. Witmark & Sons. The Tams-Witmark (Original Library of Congress Collection) contains music (manuscript and printed scores) that was being performed in the United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The scope of the collection ranges from eighteenth-century operas of Handel and Glück to a musical by George M. Cohan. The bulk of the materials are nineteenth-century English, French, German and Italian operas and operettas, the majority in full score, with some instrumental parts. Most of the scores have been annotated with cuts and performance markings, and some feature reduced or non-standard orchestrations. The collection also contains a small amount of concert music, including secular and sacred choral works, patriotic music, symphonic scores, and incidental music.
