Cantus: A Database for Latin Ecclesiastical Chant


Cantus is a database of the Latin chants found in manuscripts and early printed books, primarily from medieval Europe. This searchable digital archive holds inventories of antiphoners and breviaries -- the main sources for the music sung in the Latin liturgical Office -- as well as graduals and other sources for music of the Mass.

New phases of the project include adding chant melodies to existing records and indexing other types of chant manuscripts, including processionals, pontificals, and sources that contain sequences.
