RISM Series A/II: Music Manuscripts after 1600 is the most comprehensive annotated index and guide to music manuscripts produced after 1600. RISM brings together more than 380,000 works by over 18,000 composers into one database which can be easily searched. The manuscripts are found in over 595 libraries and archives in 31 countries including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, Uruguay and USA.
The Music manuscript database is linked to three other databases providing additional information to specific content: Composer, Library Sigla and Bibliographic Citations. (occasionally, these databases include information from other RISM series too.) The database can be searched from hyperlinks in the Music manuscript database, or directly from a database search menu. Individual manuscript citations also include musical incipits of individual movements of the cited work.
