Diego de Bruceña’s Lost Choir Book

The Lost Choir Book Project uses innovative 3D modeling technology and TEI/XML encoding to document the only surviving copy of an atlas-sized book of sacred music published in 1620 in Salamanca, Spain, by printer Susana Muñoz. The project will make a serious contribution to the history of music printing in early modern Iberia through the creation of a digital edition of the newly-discovered Bruceña volume with accompanying essays, as well as incorporate digital facsimiles of archival documents and accompanying transcriptions attesting to this remarkable pioneer of the printing of sacred music. A link to the project will be provided upon its completion.
