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.
