Note to self: clean out garage

librarian at an evangelical seminary near Philadelphia has made one of
the most important musicological finds in memory — because she decided
to clean out a dirty cabinet in the building’s basement.

Heather Carbo has unearthed Beethoven’s manuscript score for a piano version of his Grosse Fuge, a work with almost mythical status
in the music world. It had been hidden away and forgotten on a bottom
shelf at the Palmer Theological Seminary, in the suburbs of the city.

“I was just in a state of shock,” Ms Carbo said.
