    I was wondering if anyone had the score to the magic flute or  it is available for public domain.  I need it primarily for the glock. excerpt, I have looked all over the internet and have come up empty handed.I know the part is doubled with piano, but I needed some suggestions on what score to use.  There are two scores the overture and the ballet play. Any suggestions would be great.

    Did you mean imslp.org? The link you provided seems to be dead.

    Try this link. http://imslp.org/wiki/Die_Zauberflöte,_K.620_(Mozart,_Wolfgang_Amadeus)
    IMSLP.org is a great resource for basically anything in the public domain.

    Hi Chase, 

    IMSLP.org is great, as others have mentioned, but when I needed to perform this part in January, the individual part for the glockenspiel wasn't posted.  Perhaps it's up now.  

    While you're looking at the score, check out the glockenspiel part in the second Act for a thrill.  It really shows how this part was written for a keyboard glockenspiel as opposed to our modern instrument.  When I performed it, we had to use two players with separate instruments to get to all the notes in the two sections of the opera.

    Best of Luck!
