Metadata From Over 500 Objects At Universitäts Und Landesbibliothek Bonn Added To vHMML
Christian Benjamin Klein (1754-1825) was an organist and cantor from Silesia (today part of Poland). During his career he collection more than 500 manuscripts and printed works of music from 17th-, 18th- and early 19th-century composers. The king of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm III, gave this collection to the University of Bonn in 1829, where it was kept at the Musikwissenschaftliches Seminar (where HMML filmed it in the early 1980s). Today this collection is housed in the University Library at Bonn. Links to the full catalog records in RISM (Répertoire International des Sources Musicales) are also in the vHMML/Reading Room records.
