The Digital Scholarship Group at Boston College is pleased to announce the launch of the Morales Mass Book, an open access companion site to the First Book of Masses by Cristóbal de Morales (ca. 1550-1553), a Spanish composer at the Papal chapel in Rome. With Dr. Michael Noone (Music Department, Boston College) as the primary investigator and researcher, the site explores the Missarum liber primus (Lyon: Moderne, 1546) focusing on the composer, the printer, and the processes that informed the composition of four of Morales’s polyphonic masses. In addition, video and audio recordings invite us into the world of Morales’s superb music. The physical 1546 edition of the Missarum liber primus was acquired by the John J. Burns Library in 2011.

Congrats to the team on the launch! You can learn more about the project at the Digital Scholarship site.

All best,
Sarah
