Three new releases from the Royal Opera House
Three more titles have been added to the Royal Opera House Collection:
TRANSLATION: La Phonobase offers music historians and enthusiasts alike a new resource of hundreds of pre-1914 recordings, mainly from France. These old sources have been digitised with the most advanced technology, and offer the whole range of different types of music - popular, opera songs and cafe-music. The resource is regularly updated, and enquiries or comments are very welcome.
"La Phonobase - www.phonobase.org - offre à l'historien, au musicologue, ainsi qu'à tous les publics, la ressource nouvelle de milliers d'enregistrements, réalisés avant 1914, principalement en France. Ces documents anciens sont numérisés avec des moyens techniques avancés. On trouvera représenté l'ensemble des genres musicaux alors les plus en vogue, de l'air d'opéra aux chansons des étoiles du café-concert. La base est enrichie régulièrement. Questions et réflexions sont les bienvenues."

Authors received feedback quickly, and the revision process consisted of efficient online interactions with the editorial group. The final result is not only open-access, but open-source. Each essay is licensed to encourage collaboration to continue post-publication, as the essays are distributed, remixed, and hacked in various ways. And the entire volume can be "forked" and used as the basis for new projects or updates to the current project..." *
