Abadia de Montserrat (Barcelona). Biblioteca i Arxiu Musical
In addition to the library (Biblioteca), whose manuscripts were first catalogued by Olivar (1977) and whose contents can be searched in an online catalog (see the following link Biblioteca de Montserrat), the Montserrat Abbey has an important, separate music archive (Arxiu Musical) with music from the 17th through the 20th centuries in process of being catalogued. The Montserrat manuscript choirbooks purchased from the Madrid convent of the Encarnación in the 20th century are in the Biblioteca; in the present database, at the moment, the only items from the Arxiu Musical are the Ms. 22, 25 and 2991, but others will be added in the future.
I would like to thank the librarians of the Biblioteca de Montserrat and father Daniel Codina for facilitating my work for this project, still in process of including detailed inventories of each choirbook of polyphony in Montserrat.
