SOOOO… fellow medieval and renaissance music lovers,
I just got to know the paradise that DIAMM is. DIAMM stands for Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music. It’s impressive for its size and beauty. I’m also astounished by its general lack of fame, which - of course - is restricted to early music researchers. I’d say every music student should check this out, at least once in their lifetime.
The image is a detail from an unknown work (by me, at least - no inventory was listed) by flemish composer Adrian Willaert (c1490 - 1562), who was active in Venice and is one of the composers I study.
