    Summary:

    Warner/Chappell Music is an American music publishing company that traces its establishment to Chappell & Co. in London in 1810. Warner/Chappell grew in part due to its acquisition of other music publishers, many of which played prominent roles in New York City's Tin Pan Alley and in the production of shows on Broadway and elsewhere. The Warner/Chappell Collection primarily consists of scores for musicals, most intended for Broadway, but some for film, television, and other venues. The majority of the scores are manuscripts in the hands of arrangers, songwriters, and copyists, and includes combinations of full scores, piano-vocal scores, parts, and lyric sheets. The collection also contains manuscripts for popular songs and works for orchestra, band, and chamber ensembles, as well as a small number of business papers, programs, and cancelled checks.
