The collection focuses on Handel and his musical contemporaries in Britain, and comprises over 12,000 items relating to 18th century music. These include about 1,000 manuscripts, as well as printed books, music scores, libretti, performance ephemera and artworks from the 18th century to the present; the collection now acquires modern research and antiquarian material, including sound recordings.

The collection was in private hands until the 1990s, and was formally opened to the public in 2004. It is used for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students from several universities, as well for scholarly research and performance repertoire discovery. The collection has many rare and unique items and a strong collection of ephemeral publications; items are frequently loaned for exhibitions elsewhere, and images supplied for publications and broadcasts.
