This guide was created to accompany the exhibit of music scores in the main lobby of O'Neill Library. Click on the "Score" tab to find out more about scores at Boston College Libraries and, in particular, faculty compositions. "The 9th" tab has information about Beethoven's 9th symphony. If you have any questions or comments, please send them to me, Sonia Ensins, Music Librarian.
The word “score” has many meanings; in music it usually means a written or printed piece of music with all the vocal and instrumental parts arranged on staves, one under the other.
