Dublin Music Trade

Librarian and researcher Catherine Ferris completed the first phase of a project to make the research of Brian Boydell and Barra Boydell into the Dublin Music Trade to 1900 available in a free-to-access online searchable database. The Dublin Music Trade website launched in 2013, and further additions and developments are likely to follow. Making this information easily accessible will benefit musicologists, students, and particularly assist RISM Ireland when ascertaining dates of publication of scores. The Society for Musicology in Ireland, the Abbey Theatre Music project and Peartree Design have also contributed to this project.
