A Catalogue of Books of Spanish and New World Polyphony in Context

Welcome to the BHP website!

Although we are still under construction, we would like to make the BHP site open access coinciding with our presentation during the Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference in Prague on 7 July 2017.

The objective of the Books of Hispanic Polyphony (BHP) website / database is to serve as a comprehensive research tool concerning manuscript and printed polyphonic books in Spain and books with hispanic polyphony elsewhere. BHP has no chronological limitations, and we have started to cover the period from the 15th through the 20th century. We do not provide images of the sources, unless the institutions that hold them do so through repositories or permission. In such cases, we incorporate the appropriate links; for instance, to the Biblioteca Digital Hispánica, for books at the Biblioteca Nacional de España in Madrid. We also incorporate links to manuscripts described in Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM), to printed books in Printed Sacred Music Database 1500-1800,  to Portuguese Early Music  (PEM) database, and to other appropriate websites that could offer relevant information. Our menu for “Sources”, “Locations”, “Institutions”, “Musicians”, “Genres”, “Works”, “Movements”, “Documents” and “Bibliography” should give you a sense of our objective, and we are still building searching tools and different ways to connect information.  We would like to serve as a reference tool and as a platform to present fresh, new research and foster international collaboration.

This web/database was initiated as part of the four-year (2013-2016) R+D Project “Libros de polifonía hispana (1450-1650): catálogo sistemático y contexto histórico-cultural” (HAR2012-33604) of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Currently, BHP is part of the objectives of a new R+D Project “Hispanic Polyphony and Music of Oral Tradition in the Age of Digital Humanities” (HAR2016-75371-P, Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, 2017-2020).
