Cataloguing Holdings

In November of 2007 a project funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) was started at the Archiv der Erzdiözese under its then head Univ. Doz. Dr. Ernst Hintermaier: "The Musical Repertory of the Salzburg Cathedral" (P 20309-G13) aimed at cataloging the musical sources between 1670 and 1841 for the RISM-database and, thus, make them accessible to the musicological community. Two researchers, MMag. Dr. Eva Neumayr und Mag. Dr. Lars E. Laubhold, have been working on recording musical sources with the help of "KALLISTO" and placing the entries at the disposal of the International Inventory of Musical Sources (RISM). They are, by now, accessible in www.rism.opac  for everyone interested. Nevertheless, a printed cataloge of the Salzburg holdings will be published as well. Results concerning local, national and international music history (e.g. Mozart- research) as well as new insights into liturgical processes are to be expected. With the help of funds from a second project "Music at the Salzburg Metropolitan Cathedral as reflected by the sources" (P 23195-G20), granted by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) in November 2010, and after 1800 signatures in almost 2700 data-records had been entered into the RISM-database, the cataloging was brought to a close for the present. For the future, including  the holdings of the "Dommusikverein und Mozarteum" (1841-1880) into the RISM-database has been planned.
