Historical Performance Practice

A guide to library resources for musicians learning historically-informed performance practice.

How to use this guide

Use the menu bars on the left to find resources for historically-informed performance practice of music from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic style periods.  For example, click the "Articles" bar to see a list of journals and databases for finding articles about historically-informed performance practice.

For a more general guide to music resources in the library, start with the main Music Research Guide.
