We show that the density of energy levels of a wide class of finite-dimensional quantum systems tends to a Gaussian distribution as the number of degrees of freedom increases. Our result is based on a variant of the central limit theorem which is especially suited to models whose partition function is explicitly known. In particular, we provide a theoretical explanation of the fact that the level density of several spin chains of Haldane-Shastry type is asymptotically Gaussian when the number of sites tends to infinity.
