Our Choral Music Library
Over 50,000 scores!
The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir maintains an extensive choral library – with works by composers from A (Lydia Adams) to W (Healey Willan) and everything in between. We have over 400 different works, totaling over 50,000 scores. Music is available twelve months of the year. View the TMC Choral Library Catalogue below to see what’s in stock. The TMC Library is at 596 St. Clair Ave West, Suite 3, Toronto.
A Behind-the-Scenes look at the TMC choral library
In January 2017, Brian Chang of Ludwig Van Toronto wrote about the TMC library and then librarian Lorraine Spragg: “For any given performance at the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, there are 130 copies of each piece of music, one for each chorister. For a concert of small works, there could be 15 or 20 different pieces of music. That’s 1500-2000 pieces of music to coordinate, label, track, distribute and ensure their return before filing back away. The job of a choral librarian is the most underrated, most essential part of a choral administration.”
