Calvin Choral Music Database (CCMD)

The Calvin Choral Music Database (CCMD) contains over 5,000 records that describe choral scores. The core of the database is Calvin College's choral music library. The database can be searched in a multitude of ways. Some of the more distinctive and interesting are by program notes, Biblical source, liturgical use, and instrumentation.

Along with the database there are accompanying binders holding single study copies of the scores. They encompass all time periods, styles, and voicing. The CCMD is especially useful for students of choral literature, worship planners, and choir directors.

Selectors have made a special effort to add music from many cultures and countries and in a multitude of languages.
