        Subject: Corpus Rhythmorum Musicum

I am delighted to inform the list that a renewed version of the database 
containing the textual and musical editions and the linguistical, metrical, 
musical and paleographical analysis of the earliest Latin medieval "songs" 
of non-liturgical transmission - such as the "Planctus Karoli" and many 
others -, edited by a team of scholars coordinated by me and Sam Barrett 
(Univ. of Cambridge) is on line at the address www.corimu.unisi.it, now 
including the audio records of the modern musical transcriptions realized by 
Giacomo Baroffio's choirs. For copyright reasons the reproductions of the 
140 pages of the original manuscripts can be still consulted only in the 
cd-rom enclosed in the SISMEL www.sismel.it publication. The database will 
be constantly updated with new entries: the next ones are "computistic" 
songs (rhythmical early medieval calendars set to music in IX-X century). 

Every proposal of collaboration to the next editions will be welcome.
