Theatre: Find Vocal Scores

This guide provides links to basic theatre research: history, design, acting, production, scripts, videos, and careers.

Finding Vocal Scores

Browsing Marriott Library Collections

We have over 700 vocal scores and vocal selections for musicals in the Marriott Library. This list is sorted alphabetically by the title of the musical or song.

You can also find vocal scores for popular music using this list, also sorted alphabetically by title or song. Try adding the name of an artist, group, or genre (rock, jazz, folk, country) to narrow the results.

Searching Marriott Library Collections

If you're looking for a specific musical or song, do an Advanced Search in the Usearch library catalog (change the search box drop-down menu from Any Field to Title). Be sure to enclose the title "in quotation marks". Refine your results by choosing Scores under the headings Material Type or Resource Type.

If you need further assistance tracking down a score, please contact me at:

The Singer's Musical Theatre Anthology

Marriott Library has a complete set of these song anthologies, and have grouped them by voice so you can see the entire subset for just your vocal range.


Sibelius, music notation & composition software, is available on all Macs in Marriott Library, Student Computing Labs, and the McKay Music Library. Use it to transcribe and transpose sheet music scores. To find it, open the Spotlight tool (magnifying glass in upper right corner) and type in: Sibelius.

Sibelius: a comprehensive guide is available in the General Collection, Level 2, MT39.R84 2010

Online Song Indexes

These directories point to sheet music anthologies in other library collections. Many of the books also may be found in the Usearch Library Catalog.
If not, you can search for them using WorldCat, which lists materials available at libraries around the world, and request them through Interlibrary Loan.

Print Song Indexes

These books point to individual song scores published in anthologies. Follow this link for a longer list of vocal music bibliographies and song indexes, including classical, sacred, art, and folk songs.

Digitized Sheet Music Collections

Sheet Music Publishers and Vendors

We attempt to stay up-to-date with the musical scores and librettos that we own. However, if you're aware of a score or libretto that's been published and we don't own it, please suggest a purchase.
