This one is tricky. The phrase 曲集 translates to "collection (of musical pieces); studies; album; suite; ED" on WWJDICT. One rule we usually follow is to use any English text on the Front Cover in the display titles. Unfortunately, this has been rendered in English in many different ways on albums we have here:

All Sounds of....
(全)曲集 (Complete) Song Box
Music Collection
That last example is actually 楽曲集, which I would agree with translating as music collection.

I would use these when no official title is given:
曲集 = Song Collection
楽曲集 = Music Collection
音楽集 = Music Collection

+ add "Complete" if it has a 全 prefix.
