Scope and arrangement
The Antonio Mauro scores date from 1884 to 1938, with the bulk dating from 1884 to 1915. Ten original compositions and five arrangements comprise the collection. All are full score manuscripts, with parts in some cases.
The compositions consist of works for piano; chorus; orchestra; voices and piano or organ; and voices and orchestra. They also include a chamber piece for strings, piano, and organ. Some were written for liturgical purposes. One folder contains untitled or incomplete scores.
The arrangements hold music by Stephen Heller, Felix Mendelssohn, Giacomo Meyerbeer, and Giuseppe Verdi, re-orchestrated for chamber groups, small orchestras, piano, or organ. One folder contains illegible or untitled arrangements.
The lone score from 1938, an unfinished sketch, is by Melchiorre Mauro-Cottone.
The scores are in two divisions: arrangements and compositions.
