About the Project
The Renaissance Canons website is part of a research project developed within the framework of Early Music Departament lessons at Escola Superior de Música e Artes do Espetáculo (Porto/Portugal). Its goal is to provide an online resource to the students to assist their practise of didactic canons from 16th and 17h centuries through the original sources.
The project is incorporated to Centro de Estudos de Sociologia e Estética Musical (CESEM) and supported by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT).
Beyond the walls of a classroom, this website was created with the aim to expand the reach of our efforts as a free resource. To this end, its contents (texts and recordings) are published under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 licence. All scores and excerpts from original sources are public domain and are referenced with IMSLP pages accordingly.
We appreciate all comments and suggestions that can be done here or directly through the authors.
