Schubertline has been publishing downloadable scores of songs, arias and lieder since 2001. Its website, www.schubertline.co.uk, was one of the first to be licensed by Sibelius Software to make use of the newly introduced Scorch software for displaying, playing and printing music. By 2015, the library had grown in size to over 4000 score files, covering most of the best known songs, arias and duets in the classical repertoire.
The ability to transpose vocal music into a key which best suits the voice has made this resource valuable for singers, teachers and and accompanists.
The songs are now available in Score Exchange, so that by using seView they may be downloaded to iPads and tablets as well as to desk-top computers and laptops.
Click on the composer's name, below, to view the available scores. To assist transposition, most song titles are shown in 2 keys; the second version is normally lower. To hear the music, select the Scorch plug-in option.
