The Divine Office in the Latin Middle Ages

One of the results of extensive research on Northern European tonaries was a database of this material. This database is similar to CANTUS, the large and growing on-line database for Gregorian chant that contains indexes of all the chants in selected MSS and early printed sources of the Divine Office. Using both databases, this chapter compares modal assignments of certain antiphons. The results of these comparisons have implications for the study of both tonaries and antiphoners, two very different kinds of documents that include common information concerning chant melodies. This pilot study suggests that further comparisons hold great promise.
