The DFG project, which has been running since September 2014, is for the first time dealing in detail with the rich sources preserved from the heyday of the Detmold Court Theatre and is developing an XML-based model for the deep exploration of comparable stocks.
The source descriptions are based on the RISM data records available since the 1980s, which thanks to RISM's Linked Open Data Initiative can be converted into the data format of the Music Encoding Initiative (MEI) and subsequently enriched, e.g. by incipits of the music numbers, collection of personal data, as well as strokes and inlays contained in the materials.
All documents are recorded in MEI or TEI either completely or as regests, so that the interaction of both standards can be intensively tested and, above all, MEI can be further developed with regard to its applicability in music library applications. Facsimiles are also integrated exemplarily with the help of the Edirom tools. The project conceives a model that can be used in the long term for similar projects.
