How to Find Art Songs and Arias in Collections


For a successful search, know the following information:

  • Who is the composer/arranger?
  • What is the title of the song?
  • Is the song part of a larger work (opera, oratorio, song cycle...)

  1. Use a Song Index to locate songs published in collections or larger musical works:
  2. Open up KentLINK.

  3. Select "Title" tab and enter the name of the song collection or the title of the song.

  4. To limit search to printed music, click on "Other Material Type" menu and select "Music Score."  To limit search to sound recordings, click on "Sound Recordings" menu and limit search to a specific format or "All Sound Recordings."

  5. Click on "Sort by" menu and choose "Title" to organize results by title.

  6. Click "Submit."

If you are unable to find what you're looking for in KentLINK, search in OhioLINK.  Obtain items not found in OhioLINK through Interlibrary Loan.  For additional assistance, contact a Performing Arts Librarian.
