BOX 1-186 Music
BOX 1-78 Show Music
Chiefly manuscript unbound full scores, piano-vocal scores, short scores, sketches, and parts. The largest portion comes from Herbert’s operettas and operas. There are complete or nearly complete sets of orchestrations for some of the shows, while others are represented by only a few selections. Included here are Herbert’s score for the film The Fall of a Nation, film overtures, music for several Lambs’ Club productions, Herbert’s contributions to Broadway revues such as The Century Girl and The Ziegfeld Follies of 1917, ‘19, ‘20, ‘21, ‘22, and ‘23, and a few miscellaneous stage- or screen-related items. There are also a number of concert arrangements of selections from Herbert’s stage and screen scores, some by Harold Sanford or Otto Langey.
Arranged alphabetically by title of show, and alphabetically by title of selection therein.
