Morales Mass Book

The following has been received from Anna E. Kijas, Senior Digital Scholarship Librarian, Boston College Libraries: It is my pleasure to announce 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. This 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.
