The Plainsong and Medieval Music Society was founded in 1888, and exists to promote the performance and study of liturgical chant and medieval polyphony, through the publication of editions, facsimiles and scholarly articles, and through educational and liaison events.

The Art of Music is currently engaged with several projects for the Society; Compline and The Play of Daniel have both been engraved with SCORE.™

Typesetting of music and text for the new edition using plainsong notation now available

The Play of Daniel
chant notation of 'Into thy hands, O Lord', part of Compline

Typesetting of music and text in Latin and English for David Wulstan's new edition – now available.

Wulstan's staged performances with the Clerkes of Oxenford were internationally acclaimed in the 1960s and 1970s. This new edition is both a historiographical record of the treatment of the music in those classic performances and a practical guide to the ways in which the music can be brought to life today.
