The Düben family members served as Hofkapellmeister at the Royal Swedish Court from 1640 to ca. 1726 (Anders Düben 1640-62, his son Gustav Düben 1660-90 and his sons Gustav, 1690-98 and Anders 1698-ca. 1726).

Gustav Düben the elder (1628-90) is generally regarded as the main assembler of the collection, which contains vocal and instrumental works by more than 300 composers from Germany, Italy, France, Poland, England, the Baltic countries and Sweden, besides a large number of anonymous works. It is most llikely that the collection represents what remains of the music library from the Swedish Royal Court during the reign of Queen Christina (1644-54), Charles X Gustav (1654-60), Charles XI (1660/1672-97), and Charles XII (1698-1718).
