Thematic Catalogs

A thematic catalogue is an index to a group of musical compositions that incorporates citations of their opening notes (incipits), or principal melodic features (themes), or both. These citations may be given in various forms, such as conventional notes, neumes, tablatures, syllables, numbers, letters or computer codes.

      -Barry S Brook,

Thematic catalogs of classical music are located in the Music Library, in the general call number area of ML134, in the scores section of the facility. The exception to this is one of the thematic cataloges for the works of Vivaldi, which is located in the Music Library Reference section, due to the helpful tables it contains and the complexity of finding an exact piece by the composer.
