GregorianChant.jpg Gregorian Chant Digital Manuscript Collection
The Gregorian Chant Manuscript Collection was digitized from a set of microforms that came to the University of Chicago Library in the 1990s. Reproductions were obtained from various Western European institutions, libraries, and religious houses mainly in France and England. The collection of liturgical codex manuscripts dates from the 9th through 17th centuries with a concentration in the 12th and 13th centuries and include antiphonaries, missals, graduals, breviaries, sacramentaries, kyriales, tropers, sequentiaries, and others. The first twelve titles in this collection have been digitized and can be accessed from the Library's online catalog.

The St. Albans Collection of Music came to the University of Chicago as 34 volumes of printed and manuscript music acquired by successive Duchesses of St. Albans between 1780 and 1860. The collection thus provides an interesting and unusually complete picture of the musical life of an aristocratic English family in Georgian and early Victorian times.
