BOX 45-53, 58 Music, 1908-1975, and undated
Chiefly manuscript and printed music scores, many used for choreography of Pearl Lang. Some manuscripts include cues, annotations, and choreographic notes. Scores published by the Japanese Federation of Composers in 1971 are prevalent. Also included are song lyrics in Yiddish as well as translations to English of lyrics in other languages. For Lang's informal jottings of names of recordings and compositions that she found of interest, see instead the Music Notes subseries within the Writings series.
Where known, arranged alphabetically by composer and alphabetically by work title therein. Song lyrics, a file with multiple composers, and unidentified manuscripts are described at the end of the series.
