Users can now view online the music contained in the entire Hudleston Collection of printed guitar music in digital format. This is freely accessible via the Royal Irish Academy of Music online catalogue.

 

This unique resource, held in the RIAM special collections, contains over 1,000 works for guitar (both solo and chamber music) in original editions from the 19th century.

 

It was the private collection of Josiah Andrew Hudleston (1799 – 1865) who lived for many years in Madras and subsequently settled in Ireland in 1857. Throughout his life, Hudleston collected works for guitar composed by his contemporaries, several of whom he knew personally. This corpus of work represents a very flourishing period in the history of guitar music, featuring composers such as Giuliani, Sor and Carulli, and many other lesser known names.

 

You can search for material by going to our online catalogue http://library.riam.ie and selecting “Hudleston Collection” from the menu of options.

 

We welcome any feedback from users, which can be sent to library@riam.ie.
