Welcome to my blog! I will here write about my ongoing research on chant in the Birgittine Order in my research project ‘The Musical World of the Birgittine –Order’.

It is these days going through important decisions concerning their outstanding library due to the fact that the Vatican has closed the abbey. I therefore start my blog with an article about this fantastic collection including a link with a petition you can sign for the preservation of the books:
