The Burns Antiphoner is an interactive and open access resource with a dynamic presentation layer through which content (metadata, music notation, textual incipits) and multimedia based on the encoded inventory and data from a 14th-century Franciscan antiphoner can be queried and viewed. The manuscript has 119 parchment folios with text and notation for antiphons and responsories for the entire annual calendar of saints’ days. This project is a partnership of the Boston College Libraries and the Music Department in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences, with the support of an Academic Technology Innovation Grant.
IIIF manifest URI for the Franciscan Antiphoner is https://library.bc.edu/iiif/manifests/ms.1996.097.json. This manifest can be loaded into IIIF compatible viewers.
Please note: additional exploratory work is in progress and materials will be added to the repository when available.
