    Finally happened! Total semi-annual programming and the site is ready)))
    I present you the first in the world sheet music search engine ScorSer. I myself had spent a lot of time searching for the sheet music among several archives, now everything will be easier.
    Indexed more than 30 sheet music sites, and this is about 250.000 scores. 9000 scores only of Bach, Mozart is about 4700 and 3200 Beethoven scores.
    All scores are FREE!!!
    Multi language Search: for "Handel" request the search goes on with " Händel " and translation into other languages. The results present in original writing and translation in your language.
    Total so far supported 15 languages. Over time, perhaps an extension.
    PS: If you see any error search, or you have any suggestions, do not hesitate - write to the forum.
    PPS: sorry for bad english

    This seems like a very useful thing indeed. I'll certainly bookmark this one and use it regularly.
    Thanks for posting this ! I know of some site that collect links to 'free' music sites, but this is way better.

    In particular I was please to discover http://www.classicscores.narod.ru/ , a site that looks almost as vast as IMSLP or Mike Hawley's site (the latter sadly unavailable after a distastrous disk crash).

    Very useful, though the search isn't perfect (try putting in Messiaen, for example.)

    .. and with none of their copyright concerns :wink: :D

    I realy glad that you like my site)))

    My index use stemming - so the messiaen = messa = messie and so on. I was done because i want to supply more results (recall instead of precision). When you search something exactly this works good.

    Soon i'll add precision search which will use "" in query to mark words wich should not be stemed.

    New version of search

    Main improvements and additions:

    There was added lists of Composers, Instruments and Tags to make search easy and improve it quality.

    Improved accuracy of the search: earlier because of the cutoff endings of short words, such as, for example, "aria" in the search results was a lot of unnecessary items. Now stemming works only for long words

    Improved ranking of results: first, now displays the results with exact matches to the search query, then the results obtained by detecting the query keywords, instruments and composers, and then remaining on the old search results.

    The navigation in search result is improved by adding composers, instruments and tags.

    It's too bad that the 'Classic Scores' site is down. Of course I had planned on grabbing some music there, but waited too long... :x
