The ‘Proms’ project has been running since last December now, and was formally inaugurated at a meeting of the full team and advisory board on 10 December 2010. The time has now finally come to start our blog. Much work has been going on behind the scenes: we set up our project database with the Department of Digital Humanities; we have been busily collecting information on our sources and acquiring reproductions (later this year, the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM) team will travel to Modena and photograph the polyphonic manuscripts at the Cathedral); and several pilot case studies of manuscripts and printed editions are in various stages of completion which has taught us a great deal about the difficulties of coming to terms (literally!) with our project aims. We hope to publish the first results on this website in the course of 2012.
In this blog, we will aim to keep interested parties informed about the activities and progress of the project, and we warmly invite feedback on all its aspects.
