Access to Freegal has ceased. There are still a number of ways in which to get your groove on at Christchurch City Libraries. These include:
Music Online: A truly huge catalogue of music. Includes streaming audio of classical, popular, and world music, opera, and jazz. Music Online allows you to cross search: American Song; Classical Music Library; Contemporary World Music; Jazz Music Library; Popular Music Library and Smithsonian Global Sound.
Naxos Music Library: the world´s largest online classical music library. Currently, it offers streaming access to more than one and a half million tracks of both standard and rare repertoire and is continually updated. Jazz, world, and pop/rock are also represented in this eResource.
Oxford Music: for all your music reference queries.
All you need to access the above musical resources are your password/PIN and a need to escape this cold world and float away on a few magical music notes!
