 Tudor Partbooks: The Manuscript Legacies of John Sadler, John Baldwin and their Antecedents

This three-year project – a collaboration between the Universities of Oxford and Newcastle funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – will digitize all the extant manuscripts of Tudor polyphonic music from c.1510-1590 preserved in partbook format (where each vocal part is written in a separate book).
