Beginning this month, CMC will be posting a monthly update from the library featuring some of the works recently added to its collection. With over 170 active Irish composers registered, CMC regularly receives scores and recordings which are fully catalogued, digitised and added to its library.
During March, works from 10 different composers were added to the CMC online library catalogue. These include works from a range of musical categories – solo instrumental, ensemble, electro-acoustic, vocal, choral and orchestral works – with most having recent premieres. Selected works include:
