Schubertline: Inexpensive Sheet Music On-line
When Julianne Baird was at ODU in February last winter she passed the information
on to Agnes Fuller Wynne who passed it on to us. As each new issue of AU grew in length I held
the information for the next issue. Now that a new school year has begun, this information is very important for
both student and teacher and I must no longer delay in bringing it to you. Finally, here it is.
Schubertline can be found at Schubertline.com .
There you will find over 1100 scores available on-line for you to print, most for a fee
of about $1. There are also twenty titles you can print without charge. Instant on-line printing of lieder,
songs and arias which may be viewed, played and printed in any key using Sibelius Scorch,
the free software which lets you download sheet music from the internet. We count music by
54 composers from Bach and Beethoven to Wagner and Wolf. Copyright laws prevent their offering
music by anyone who died after 1932. We hope you will find it useful and if you do, they also
offer a six month subscription for about $25 that allows you to download and print an unlimited
number of scores.
We'd suggest that you print the two pages titled Using Schubertline
from their menu to help you figure out the details.
Update May 1, 2005: Mary Nicholson of Schubertline has sent us
the following new information:
