The Russian National Museum of Music has provided access to the electronic library "Treasury of Sacred Music". The online resource presents digitized old music manuscripts and music publications from the museum's collection.
In particular, the library offers Old Believers' books of the XVIII-XX centuries, documents dedicated to the singing of various centers of the Old Believers, as well as spiritual works by composers of the Classical era and liturgical books.
The portal also stores books that are not related to the Old Russian tradition. These are historical manuscripts, personal diaries and letters of researchers of the XIX century: Prince Vladimir Odoyevsky, Archpriest Dimitri Razumovsky, Archpriest Vasily Metallov and Soviet musicologist Viktor Belyaev.
