Find Song Titles

Search a song title by Keyword Boolean in QCAT using quotation marks: - e.g. "il pleure dans mon coeur".

Use the Song Index to help locate songs from published collections/anthologies housed in the music collection stacks. If title access does not yield the song (since the search string is followed literally), try searching only by the composer's last name.
