Pick a site any site

Reviews of digital music websites and digital music collections archives. Was fascinated by the choices in this bundle and had fun browsing through old music and digital reference collections about music. Free trials, free music and periodicals.

Great collections on Naxos Music Library .
A lot of Choral and Choir and Classic Music.

Tried the 15 minutes preview option on several different computers to browse what they had. Great recording but some of the ones I was interested in had a copyright issue for the United States.
Now back to the previous post of chapter 1 for future of the music business…:)
The music I wanted on Naxos was copyrighted. Listened to GOSSEC, F.-J.: Grand Symphonies Nos. 1-3 / Sabinus Suite

“All Naxos Historical, Naxos Classical Archives, Naxos Jazz, Folk and Rock Legends and Naxos Nostalgia titles are not available
to subscribers in the United States and some titles may not be available to subscribers in Australia, Singapore, and Japan because these countries have copyright laws
that provide or may provide for terms of protection for sound recordings that differ from the rest of the world.”

“The copyright laws in which these records were made differ from the United States” ….aannnnd Naxos did not have rights to play the music. Even for subscribers.

The music I wanted was copyrighted. Naxos still has a great collection though. Naxos was my fav for all the music I got on several computers 15 min preview no signups!

The others:
Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale – RILM loved this database. Reminded me of a DK look or Encarta Encyclopedia. Not an easy way to search and would have preferred a search bar but found what I wanted. Not easy to get in you have to sign up through a database. Used CSA Illumina and accessed just rilm. Also on OCLC.
Most are paid subscription sites. Didn’t like the trials asking for so much on:

On the other side of that is ripm – Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (1800-1950). Full free text periodicals!

Had fun browsing …)
