Are you (or a musician you know) in search of new music to play while you’re staying at home? Here a few resources to explore:

“Sharing the world’s public domain music.” Hover over “Scores” at the top of the page to browse by composer, instrumentation/genre, and more.

MusOpen
Provides “recordings, sheet music, and textbooks to the public for free, without copyright restrictions.” You can browse sheet music by composer, instrument, form, or time period.

Mutopia Project
“2124 pieces of music – free to download, modify, print, copy, distribute, perform, and record – all in the Public Domain or under Creative Commons licenses.” Browse by instrument, composer, or style.

Digital Scores: A Guide to Online Notated Music Sources
This very comprehensive guide from Princeton University Library broadly defines “scores” as “all notated music in all formats,” and links to many different types of collections, most of which are freely accessible.
