My current research involves the technicalities of music printing in sources emanating from German-speaking areas from the late fifteenth to mid-sixteenth centuries. My special focus is on liturgical books, especially on the connections between printed missals and graduals, and printed breviaries and antiphoners. Concurrently I am exploring the plainchant repertoire of early modern Salzburg, particularly the chant used by the Benedictine Order. My doctoral dissertation investigated plainchant revision in graduals printed in the Italian peninsula in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the interrelationships between sources issued by different publishing firms. Throughout my research I maintain a strong interdisciplinary focus, and I am interested in the use of digital technologies and social media to promote accessibility, public outreach, and engagement.
