Liber Hymnarius:Community portal
There are two big goals for the Liber Hymnarius wiki:
- to provide recordings of the hymns of the Liber Hymnarius
- to provide translations of the hymns.
For recordings, please try to keep the third line from the bottom on A.
“What can I do to help?”
Plenty! There are one big and two smaller areas that have yet to be tackled:
- The big one: cross-reference of the melodies. Noticed how many of the melodies are the same? It would be great to easily be able to pull up all the hymns with the same melody. Right now, the only way to do that is to sift through the category each hymn is placed in according to meter. Huge thanks to Benstox for getting this going!
- A littler one: cross-reference of the authors. For example, it would be nice to search for St. Ambrose and find a page for him with links to his hymns. Again, thanks to Benstox for putting in the time necessary to make this happen!
- A littler one: cross-reference of the liturgical usage. Right now, coming to a particular hymn page from an outside website (like a search engine) won't tell you for what the hymn is used.
Many thanks also to Brennansia for providing so many translations!
Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!
