Kalamazoo "Cantus Hackathon" Session

We began an inventory of the antiphoner copied by Jacobellus of Salerno, now held by the Art Institute of Chicago! Our willing participants learned about the layout of manuscript pages, the expected order of chants throughout the offices, how to navigate through the Cantus input screens (some automated and some manual), and more.
