Note: Numerous composers throughout the finding aid for the Lauro Ayestarán Collection have unknown biographical information. Because of the amount of "Other Manuscripts" in the collection (mostly signed printed scores) by composers whose identities cannot be verified in reference resources, their names are not included in this inventory. Researchers are encouraged to read the finding aid.
