Project Team

This Text Archive was initiated as part of the project Citation and Allusion in the Ars Nova French Chanson and Motet: Memory, Tradition, Innovation, which was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK, from 2007-2010, and developed as part of the Leverhulme funded project Guillaume de Machaut: Music, Image, Text in the Middle Ages. The team involved has included to date:

Prof Yolanda Plumley (Department of History, University of Exeter) was principal investigator, and directed the project and its outputs. She is currently directing the project Guillaume de Machaut: Music, Image, Text in the Middle Ages (funded by The Leverhulme Trust, 2010-13), which is producing a complete edition of Machaut’s works.

Dr Giuliano Di Bacco was research fellow on the project; he designed and constructed the Text Archive with Gary Stringer, and edited and encoded many of the lyrics.

Gary Stringer (now Assistant College Manager for Infrastructure and Technical Services, Humanities, University of Exeter) provided technical support for the project, collaborated with GDB on the design and construction of the Text Archive, and developed the XQuery/XSLT queries for the website.

Dr Tamsyn Rose-Steel (University of Exeter) was a doctoral student attached to this project; she worked on the transcription and encoding of texts, and continues to mark up further lyrics.

The Archive has also benefitted from the contribution of texts transcribed and encoded by Dr Benjamin Albritton (Stanford University).
