The following pages take you to alphabetical listings in three categories of the known borrowings by Ives of music by other composers. Click on the arrowheads in the right hand columns to listen to sound files of these tunes.
These borrowings have been identified by J. Peter Burkholder in All Made of Tunes: Charles Ives and the Uses of Musical Borrowing (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1995) and by Clayton Henderson in The Charles Ives Tunebook, 2nd ed. (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2008).
The “Songs” listing encompasses several categories defined separately in
Henderson: “Patriotic Songs,”
“Popular Songs,” and “College
Music,” and some songs that
he groups in “Classical Music.” The “Instrumental Pieces”
listing presents a number of fiddle tunes.
