Musica International was established as a non-profit organisation in 1998 to realise the vision expressed by the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM) of creating a comprehensive database of the world’s choral music. More than thirty years later, Musica International has amassed data on almost 200,000 musical scores and has developed a Virtual Choral Library. This collaborative multimedia database is a multilingual tool and one of the most comprehensive sources of choral music information in the world.
Membership of Musica International is open to all federations, higher education and other teaching institutions, foundations, music libraries and publishers with an interest in raising awareness of the choral repertoire.
