Welcome to Sheet Music Back In Print


The Land Where the Good Songs Go

Dear old songs forgotten too soonó
They had their day, and then we threw them away;
So off to a happier home they flew,
Where they're always loved and they're always new...

This great P.G. Wodehouse/Jerome Kern song is a perfect metaphor for this website and can be purchased here. Many other songs by this duo are featured in the innovative musical Oh Boy!, first staged in 1917 and recently produced here in Chicago at City Lit Theater. Sheet Music Back In Print prepared new editions of almost all of the music that was then arranged by musical director Kingsley Day. For links to the titles in our site from Oh Boy!, click here. And be sure to visit our latest additions page if you haven't visited us in a while.

Editor-in-Chief Francis Lynch explains the concept behind our website in this video by Burlingham Productions:


Here you can download sheet music in affordable, new editions of rare and formerly out-of-print piano/vocal works. Our catalog includes works from the late 1800s to the early 1920s, and you can view a sample page and listen to an MP3 of any piece before you purchase. For vocal works, you can also view a vocal part with all of the words so that you can sing along with the music! You can purchase individual works, or you can purchase an annual membership for only $25 that allows you to download everything in our catalog. All music is supplied in the PDF format and downloads in seconds for printing on your computer. We feature four major categories of works:

Popular Songs and Show Tunes
Solo Piano Music (Rags/Waltzes/Marches and more)
Art Songs and Duets
Sacred Songs and Duets
