IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library

My music teacher turned us on to this excellent web site, which not only lists composers alphabetically but also by nationality (who knew there was an Icelandic composer Sveinbj√∂rn Sveinbj√∂rnsson? ) and music by instrument and even entire books - I downloaded Chinese Music by J. A. Van Aalst in the hopes of finding the origins of the music featured in my CD Splendid Jubilant New Year - The Collection of Chinese Festival Music. I'd love to transcribe Splendor Night Vision (which is awesome for the title alone) into piano form - how handy if somebody already put together the sheet music.
