finding vocal music
on: August 24, 2012, 10:03:02 PM
Are there any discussion groups or forums devoted to vocal music?

I know this is not exactly a piano-related topic, but maybe someone will be able to point me in the right direction.

(The immediate issue is that I'm looking for the complete vocal music by composer Carl Loewe, hopefully for medium or low voice. I'm looking either to buy a copy or borrow it from a library. It's not available in New York City, where I live, and I don't know where to go. )

Thanks.

you could speak to the library folks about interlibrary loan lending services. that should get you what you need. i.e. they seach other library and borrow it from them then check it out to you. :)

I second the Interlibrary Loan suggestion.  Through this service I've been able to borrow stuff from all across the country.  Pickup is as simple as going to your local library. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Download it?

Though I do appreciate that printing it would cost a bit!
