A few minor suggestions, and a question:

* On the front page, I would drop the words "browse (by)" aboven the
columns ("browse latest additons"->"latest additions", "browse by
instrument"->"instrument", "browse collections"-> "collections"). This
saves some prime screen real estate, while still being perfectly
* Still on the front page, I would make the column title ("Latest
additions", "Instrument", ...) a clickable link and drop the "Show
all" link at the bottom. It's no use there anyway, as it drops off
most screens...
* The links currently exposed by "show all" at the bottom of the front
page: I would not point them all at one page crowded with multiple
tables, but at a separate page per subject (a "by instrument" page for
example). When one wants to browse all instrument links, no use
pointing the user to a page with tables for composer, instrument and
style. Just a link to a page with "by instrument" should be much
clearer and get rid of some more tables.

I would like to propose some more minor updates that would be filed
more easily as git pull requests (and/or if on github, github issues).
Is there some git repository with the new code in a branch where I can
propose those?
