Resources for medieval musicology and liturgy
The CANTUS Database for Latin Ecclesiastical Chant is delighted to announce that a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is funding the redesign of CANTUS at the University of Waterloo (Canada). In order to maintain its usefulness as one of the most lauded online Gregorian chant research tools, this digital archive of medieval manuscript indices is being redeveloped in MySQL on a Drupal server. In this more up-to-date environment, there is great potential for new analytical and data-entry tools intended to serve both researchers and database contributors. CANTUS is now affiliated at the University of Waterloo with the MARGOT research cluster of medieval digital humanities projects, and is being run collaboratively by Debra Lacoste (University of Waterloo) and Jan Koláček (Charles University, Prague). Access CANTUS via MARGOT at http://margot.uwaterloo.ca/cantus/index.html or directly at http://cantus.gregorian-chant.org/.
