Welcome

MMMO database is an international virtual library of music sources, and gathers notated manuscripts of Western language from the medieval period up to 1600. For example, within seconds this database will find all antiphonaries or the twelfth century or all Dominican manuscripts, etc.

A special effort is made to index the songs of the oldest sources contained in fragments, marginalia and notated additions, incorporated in manuscripts which are not fully notated.

WORK IN PROGRESS

CANTUS IMPERII

MMMO welcomes the Cantus Imperii project indexes medieval manuscript between the 8th and the 14th centuries, from areas corresponding to Charlemagne’s Empire.
These indexes will allow to compare full texts of chants and rediscover diverse chant traditions.
