An excellent source for core collections is "A Basic Music
Library: Essential Scores and Sound Recordings"
published jointly by ALA and the Music Library Association
in 1997. Although somewhat out-of-date now (titles being
out-of-print, etc.), it is an excellent source. I am using it for
core collection development lists for our libraries so they
can adequately review and develop their sound recordings
collections. Hope this helps.
