RISM Ireland is working to undertake the systematic cataloguing of musical sources in Ireland, both north and south. Religious and secular manuscript and printed music up to the twentieth century, music librettos and books about music are central to the project, as is the issuing of RISM sigla to previously unidentified music repositories. Sources may be either public or private but must be accessible to bona fide researchers: totally private repositories are therefore excluded from the project.
Researchers and other interested parties are invited to contact any member of the RISM Ireland Steering Committee with information they may possess regarding hitherto unidentified, uncatalogued or little-known music sources or any other repositories in Ireland. We also welcome any information regarding any completed or ongoing cataloguing or research projects. Any assistance given to the RISM Ireland project will be appropriately acknowledged.
