Online Edition of the Secular Music of Luca Marenzio

Preparation for publication of volumes 4, 8, 13, 19, and 21 of the complete online digital edition of the secular music of Luca Marenzio. (33 months)

The goal of the Marenzio Online Digital Edition (MODE) is to make available, for the first time, the complete critical edition of the secular music of Luca Marenzio (c. 1553-1599), a preeminent composer of the Renaissance whose output had a fundamental impact on early modern European culture. By innovatively integrating music philology and digital technology, MODE introduces a model for both producing and disseminating editions of musical repertories of the Western tradition. The comparison of the sources through new digital tools allows editors not only to produce an accurate version of a composition and to enormously speed up the editing process, but also to improve scholarly understanding about the world of early modern printing. The output of the edition through a dynamic web-based digital interface offers users the flexibility well known to other humanities digital editions, but thus far unavailable to music. The NEH grant will be used to edit one fourth of the works.
