Welcome

The Slovak Early Music Database - Cantus Planus in Slovacia allows free and universal access to complete or fragmentary manuscripts with musical notation, written before c. 1600, kept at many different libraries and archives in Slovakia. Every manuscript is given in full-color reproduction and entered with a general description. Selected codices and fragments with monophonic or polyphonic music are fully indexed.
