Musical Term of the Week

Opus -- Latin: work. Generally used in the listing of a composer's works by opus numbers, usually abbreviated to "Op."

Since the Latin plural opera would lead to unnecessary confusion it is best avoided, although the alternative opuses remains an unsatisfactory substitute.

Opus numbers are not always a guide to the date of composition or even to the date of publication.
