Resources for medieval musicology and liturgy
Melodiarium hymnologicum Bohemiae is a digital catalogue of the repertory of monophonic Latin, Czech, and German sacred song found in sources located in the Czech lands or imported into the Czech lands, from the earliest beginnings until the 18th century. In a general sense, the catalogue builds on the unrealized project of a universal hymnological catalogue prepared just before World War II at Brno’s university by Vladimír Helfert and Antonín Škarka; conceptually, however, this catalogue is based on the requirements given by the current knowledge about monophonic sacred song and technically it makes use of the possibilities offered by new electronic information and communication technologies. An integral part of the catalogue is the edition Fontes monodici Bohemiae et Moraviae, which presents a digital facsimile of important sources for the study of Czech sacred monophony from the 14th to the 18th century.
The project Melodiarium hymnologicum Bohemiae is realized by a team of scholars from the Department of Musicology of the Philosophical Faculty of Masaryk University in Brno with the financial support of the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports of the Czech Republic.
