Acquisition of Music Library of French Composer Gabriel Baille

NUI Maynooth Library is delighted to add the music library of renowned French musician Gabriel Baille (1832-1909) to its exceptional research collections.

Gabriel Baille was at the centre of musical life in the French city of Perpignan.  He composed for organ, piano, orchestra and mixed choir.  His music library, of 81 volumes, contains much of interest to NUI Maynooth and St. Patrick’s College Maynooth, particularly with regard to 19th century French editions of instrumental methods, organ music and sacred music.
