Music: LDS: Primary Music

LDS music for children in the HBLL

The Music section of the HBLL collects vocal music for children. Arangements or compositions by church members can be found by searching "Mormon Music Collection" in a general keyword search.

M 1990  M 1998 = secular vocal music for children

M 2190 – M 2196 = sacred vocal music for children

Compositions by LDS composers are designated by a .8 after the call number (so, for example: M 2190.8, or M 1990.8).
