Methodology

The project has consisted of four principal activities:

  • Acquisition of digital images of Chopin’s manuscripts and first editions
  • Comparative textual analysis of these sources
  • Adaptation and expansion of information derived from the Annotated Catalogue of Chopin’s First Editions
  • Development and refinement of the technical means to display these images and related text, whether generated by the project team or by individual users.

These activities have been conducted by the Project Director, by several Research Fellows at the University of Cambridge and at Royal Holloway, University of London, and by the technical team at the Department for Digital Humanities, King’s College London (formerly the Centre for Computing in the Humanities – CCH).
