June 2018: We are pleased to announce the launch of our book Early Music Printing in German-Speaking Lands which recently appeared with Routledge in the series 'Music and Material Culture'. The program and abstracts of our conference at the end of June is now online. You are cordially invited to attend.


Welcome to the website for the project Music printing in German-speaking lands: From the 1470s to the mid-16th century.

This project builds upon the FWF project which ran from 2012-2015: Early music printing in German-speaking lands: Technical and repertoire development. The current project extends the investigation in two directions: backwards to the beginnings of music printing, and forwards to 1550. By its end, detailed data on the first seventy-five years of music printing will be examined in detail and presented in this online database and in scientific publications.
