Welcome to the Archive of Iberian Polyphony, an open-access resource and research tool for musicologists, musicians, and interdisciplinary scholars working in the field of Iberian Studies. The Archive of Iberian Polyphony was developed under the FCT-funded R&D project The Anatomy of Late 15th- and Early 16th-Century Iberian Polyphonic Music, PTDC/CPC-MMU/0314/2014, based in the CESEM – Centre for the Study of the Sociology and Aesthetics of Music at NOVA FCSH, Portugal, and directed by João Pedro d’Alvarenga between 2016 and 2019. The Archive gathers information regarding Iberian polyphonic repertories both sacred and secular, their basic musical parameters, texts, sources and composers, also providing downloadable editions of the individual works for study and performance purposes. Although it was designed for a specific project dealing with Spanish and Portuguese polyphony from between the 1470s and the late 1520s, the Archive remains open to future enrichments and will also include later repertories.
