The Chansonniers of Nicholas Du Chemin (1549-1551): A Digital Forum for Renaissance Music Books

Development of an open source bilingual database and collaborative digital forum to facilitate research and scholarly exchange about Renaissance music.

The digital environment offers much that might advance the study, teaching, and performance of early music. Focusing on a neglected but important repertory of chansons from mid-sixteenth-century Paris, this unique project will put old books before a diverse audience of modern scholars and musicians in ways that will prompt renewed understanding of these cultural artifacts and their meanings. Our work will advance scholarship and serious study of Renaissance music in several related ways, offering a searchable image archive, an innovative electronic display for music books, commentaries and examples, and tools for research, transcription and collaboration.
