St Emmeram Codex music heard for the first time in 600 years

A collaboration of academics in England and Germany, working on the St Emmeram Codex, have recorded a CD of polyphonic music from the manuscript, the first time this music has been heard since the 15th century.

The 3-year research project has also produced a modern colour facsimile of the work, "one of the largest, oldest and most important collections of vocal music to survive from late-medieval Europe." The manuscript includes over 200 compositions of sacred and secular music.
