Public Domain Music (Free Online Scores)

At the time International Music Score Library Project was added to LibGuides, it had 167,455 scores. Petrucci Music Library or IMSLP is a wiki that collects and maintains a page to share public domain music, or music that has gone out of copyright. If you can't find the score you are looking for in the Library's collection, and the score is more than 120 years old, chances are it is located here.
