Streamed Music from Music Online: Classical Music Library

The Whittaker Library subscribes to two of the top music streaming services for classical music - Music Online: Classical Music Library (produced by Alexander Street Press), and the Naxos Music Library.  They're a bit like Spotify, but our registered staff and students don't have to pay a subscription, and there are no adverts!  Add to that the useful background information about the music, and you've got a very useful resource.

Here are some useful podcasts about Music Online: Classical Music Library

Now try a search for yourself - go to Music Online: Classical Music Library.  In the search box at the top, type Holst Planets, and hit return. Click on the first item.  See what kind of information appears down the white, left-hand panel.  Note that when you hover your mouse over the Planets title hyperlink, you get further factual info about when the piece was written etc.  However, you don't get a full programme note.
