Medieval Music, Big Data and the Research Blend

Music's Professor Mark Everist has just won £49,480.00 (FEC) from the Arts and Humanities Research Council together with his co-investigator, Nicholas Gibbins, in Electronics and Computer Science.

The project, part of the ‘Transforming Musicology’ theme, takes structured data – the nearly 1000 conductus poems edited in the Cantum pulcriorem invenire project – and links this to the plethora of digitised medieval texts on the world wide web. The aim of the project is to uncover intertextual reference between the conductus and such other types of text as sermon, chronicle and commentary in the period 1150 to 1350. Cantum pulcriorem invenire is a major research project funded by the AHRC for three years between 2010-2013; this new award will allow for further extension of the research developed in the earlier phase.
