Description

This session will demonstrate how one can use "CANTUS: A Database for Latin Ecclesiastical Chant" to determine information about loose medieval music manuscript leaves, like the ones hanging on the walls of your neighbourhood library.

Digital images of fragments will be shown on-screen. On a second screen, a panel of musicologists will use the online CANTUS database to match textual phrases in order to determine the liturgical contents of the leaves. The panel will then comment on the types of notations, scripts, sizes, and other features of the fragments and attempt to determine a suggested provenance and dating for the leaves.

Submissions of fragments from the audience are welcome .... and necessary! Participate in this episode of the "Antique Fragments Roadshow" by bringing to the session images of the leaves hanging in your libraries, offices, homes, etc. or send them to CANTUS prior to the Congress.
