Classical Music Library is a multi-label database centered around over 50,000 Classical music recordings. A reference section yields biographies and images of compsers, themed playlists, a glossary of musical terms, and a historical guide.
The database includes recordings of music written from the earliest times (eg Gregorian Chant) to the present, including contemporary composers. The selection ranges from vocal and choral music, to chamber, orchestral, solo instrumental, and opera.
A 'Sacred' category for browsing genres such as the Mass, Requiem, Stabat Mater, Magnificat, etc. enables users to distinguish between a composer's sacred and secular works, such as Bach's sacred and secular cantatas.
Users can create playlists and purchase downloads of some materials. Educators have options to create tests and further organize material for use in coursework.
