This catalogue is divided alphabetically by composer:

A - C, D - H, I - R, S - Z

Entries are arranged in one sequence by composer's name. Where a work has been edited or arranged, the name of the editor or arranger is given.


Each different edition of a work has a separate entry, including those that are reprints of earlier editions (e.g. Publisher: Kalmus).

String parts list the actual number of copies available in each set, and are normally stated in standard format of violin 1, violin 2, viola, cello, and double bass.

Each set of parts is accompanied by a full (conductor's) score unless otherwise stated. Solo parts for standard works are not normally included.
