This workshop is in two parts. Firstly, the four speakers will present several examples of Spanish and Portuguese musical fragments dating from the tenth to the sixteenth centuries and discuss their musical and codicological characteristics. In the second part the participants will be actively involved in the identification and description of the contents of some unstudied musical fragments belonging to a private collector who has kindly allowed us to include photos of them within the Portuguese Early Music Database (pemdatabase.eu).
The Portuguese Early Music Database is an ongoing research project which aims to digitize musical manuscripts of plainchant and polyphony written before c. 1650 and make them freely available online for consultation. Currently the PEM database includes reproductions of ca 15% of the manuscripts we have digitised so far and we are seeking new collaborators willing to study for the first time the contents of these sources or to focus on some of the features (such as the decoration, palaeography, liturgy etc.) of the manuscripts already indexed in PEM in greater detail.
The workshop’s goals are to:
The morning session will be held in Sala Multiusos 2, Edificio I&D, Av. de Berna 26, 1050-099 Lisbon
The afternoon session and the lecture-performance will be held in the Auditorium 001, Torre A, FCSH, Av. de Berna 26 C, 1069-061 Lisbon
