This paper contains an overview of Pre-Columbian music research between 1880 and 1920. Figures and the interdisciplinary direction of the research movement are discussed in detail. Many of these early studies remain ignored, which is a concern for music historiography.

In this paper the objectives, methods, and achievements of early researchers on pre-Columbian music are discussed, including distinguished scholars who played an essential role in the development of music-archaeological research in the Americas. Between 1880 and 1920, many important questions on music in the pre-Columbian societies were raised and even answered, but seldom reflected in later periods of research.

Cantus scriptus: Technologies of Medieval Song

The Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age; 2010 Symposium
Edited by Lynn Ransom & Emma Dillon
ISBN: 978-1-61719-056-8
This volume gathers six essays from papers presented at the 3rd Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on November 19-20, 2010. The essays explore both the technology of inscribed musical expression in the Middle Ages—especially in regard to notation—and the role that modern digital technologies play in facilitating the study of music manuscripts today. As the manuscript evidence shows, medieval music as written text was both expressive and prescriptive in shaping music-making practices, performance, and reception.
