Fontes musicæ in Polonia

is a editorial series initiated by the Institute of Musicology, University of Warsaw. It is co-created by a team of musicologists affiliated in many centres of the country and abroad. The aim of Fontes musicae in Polonia series are the editions of music sources connected with the culture of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and preserved in our country’s libraries. Till the end of 2021 it will be mostly the results of the NPRH project titled:

The Music Repertoire of the Society of Jesus in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (1565-1773)

As part of the project, the following series are published:

A series  catalogues of music collections,

B series   facsimile editions and books,

C series  critical editions of music sources.

These series will appear simultaneously in two versions: printed and electronic, freely accessible on this website.

This publishing formula answers first and foremost to the needs of the present: effective global circulation of research results and easy access to sheet music for all those interested in early Polish repertoires.  By preparing this series, however, we aim to pay our debt of gratitude to the past, to study and revive forgotten monuments of our culture so that they are restored to the national heritage. The expected results of cooperation in an international research environment should lead to a reliable assessment of the historical values of our tradition. In this way, we also work for the future.
