National Library of Spain: Fragment of Bellini Opera Score Discovered Inside Bound Volume of Photographs and Drawings
From The Telegraph:
Spain’s national library said [earlier this week] that it had discovered a rare fragment of an opera score handwritten by 19th-century Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini lying within its archives.
The fragment was discovered after the library’s catalogue service requested the identification of a “sheet of music bound in an album of 19th century photographs and drawings with landscapes of Malta and Sicily”, it said.
