new CANTUS website

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 or directly at

  • I have downloaded entire databases of information about a manuscript - in undifferentiated text, and this drew upon ALL my computer skills to turn into usable data.
  • Brilliant ! Its format has been so out of date, and was in grave danger of becoming so outmoded as to be unusable. All that workgone to waste. MySQL is just what it needs, and a good graphic capacity too !
  • Great!
