This talk will report on research carried out by faculty and students at the University of Northern Iowa in Spring 2023 on two late medieval chant manuscripts from women’s communities held in University of Iowa Libraries. Participants in the course “Chant from Manuscript” transcribed and indexed two medieval nuns’ manuscripts for publication in the Cantus Database of Latin Ecclesiastical Chant, an international digital humanities project. Faculty and students will share their research findings, demonstrate the pedagogical benefits of incorporating manuscript study into the Musicology curriculum, and sing examples from the two manuscripts.
