MMDB

Medieval Music Database

John Stinson is responsible for the Medieval Music Database which houses over 70,000 works of all kinds. John was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in January 2010 for services to medieval music.

The original online archive exists on the La Trobe University Library Website (active 1994- 2004), and a new and updated version is currently under development.

The MMDB contains a complete transcription of a 14th-century set of Dominican corali in the Biblioteca Augusta di Perugia and is indexed by text, melody and rubric, as well as three medieval musical manuscripts held in Australian libraries. One of these, the Poissy Antiphonal, is discussed in detail in The La Trobe Journal.
