A Russian librarian has discovered the manuscript for The Funeral Song (1908), a work by Stravinsky that was previously thought lost.

Natalia Braginskaya, of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, said: "The Funeral Song, which Stravinsky composed in 1908 and regretted losing, seeing it as one of his best early works, has been miraculously found in our library.

"The Conservatory has not moved since 1896 and one can speculate that huge numbers of uncatalogued musical works are still buried in the library.”
