New database: Recent Researches in Music Online (RRIMO)
We are pleased to announce we have subscribed to Recent Researches in Music Online (RRIMO), a database from A-R Editions, which has published the Recent Researches in Music series since its inception in 1962. We had arranged for trial access this spring, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing all instruction online and sending us home to support the research and curricular needs of our patrons remotely, and we have since decided to add it to our long list of resources you will find listed on the Music page in the Database Library.
Recent Researches offers critical performing editions of music in seven series, and titles fall into two basic categories: editions that span the history of Western music, and editions with ties to specific cultural milieus. Most editions in Recent Researches in Music are devoted to works by a single composer or in a single genre.
RRIMO provides online access to all titles published in the seven Recent Researches in Music series: Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, 19th/20th centuries, American [including Music of the United States of America (MUSA), a co-publication between A-R Editions and the American Musicological Society], and Oral Traditions. You get access to fully searchable text content of scores and partbooks, and the ability to read them online, print, or save them to your computer.
RRIMO also includes titles from the series Collegium Musicum, which was founded by the Yale University Department of Music in 1955 and published by A-R Editions from 1969 to 2017. These volumes present a diverse selection of works suitable for performance by early music ensembles.
