The Research Foundation for Music in Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of the Dublin Music Trade website, a new free-to-access online resource detailing the who, what, where and when of the historic music trade in Dublin.
This new website is the first step in bringing together information on the music trade in Dublin from the earliest times to the present day. The coverage of the Dublin Music Trade website falls primarily between 1515 and 1850, however the editors intend to expand and develop Dublin Music Trade as more information is added.
The Dublin Music Trade has been funded by the Music Libraries Trust and the Society for Musicology in Ireland. It is hosted by the Research Foundation for Music in Ireland and is supported by the Conservatory of Music & Drama at the Dublin Institute of Technology.
