The Center for Digital Initiatives at Brown University has produced a number of excellent digital collections over the past years, including strong collections of digitized sheet music. The Yiddish Sheet Music collection continues in that tradition by offering a wide range of pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. Visitors can browse the collection by creator, title or even thumbnail images of the first page of each piece of music. The collection offers an inside glimpse into the world of Yiddish music that dominated many a stage in places like the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and for persons with an interest in cultural history or ethnomusicology, this site is a real find.
