The year-end season is when traditional music can be especially appreciated, and it’s the perfect time to show support for the Traditional Tune Archive.
If you rely, enjoy, or otherwise use the TTA during the year, would you consider making a donation to help underwrite the archive at this time?
User donations are essential to keeping the TTA running commercial-free and technologically up-to-date.
We would like to thank those who have made contributions to the TTA (monetary and informational) and we look forward to engaging new members of the music community.

Valerio and Andrew.
Tune books



This list will hopefully includes a lot of important URTEXT edition of tunebooks that were in print within the past years but are now out of print.
One may find them in large libraries.
Alternatively one may inquire the Internet, which can access inventories of distributors and second-hand book stores.
... one may find them here!
Individual tunes can be separately found in this site in ABC format together with annotation, comments, anecdotes and semantic links to alternative titles, alleged composers and/or geographical provenance, of the same tune.
Tunebooks listed here are freely downloadable and ready for printing in Portable Document Format.
Lilypond and LaTeX were the tools used to typesetting music.
More to come...
