Original title / Originaltitel Geistliche Gesänge des deutschen Mittelalters. Melodien handschriftlicher Überlieferung bis um 1530
Summary / Zusammenfassung The intended publication in eight volumes «Sacred Songs of the German Middle Ages. Melodies and Texts in Manuscript Sources until ca. 1530» (Geistliche Gesänge des deutschen Mittelalters. Melodien handschriftlicher Überlieferung bis um 1530) represents section II of the project «Das deutsche Kirchenlied. Kritische Gesamtausgabe der Melodien» (The German Sacred Lied. A Critical Complete Edition of the Melodies) of which the patron is the Society for the Scholarly Edition of the German Sacred Lied (Gesellschaft zur wissenschaftlichen Edition des deutschen Kirchenlieds).
The object of the edition of the «Sacred Songs», edited by Max Lütolf, assisted by Mechthild Sobiela-Caanitz, Cristina Hospenthal, Bernhard Hangartner, and Max Schiendorfer, is to record the wide range of the medieval sacred vocal repertory with vernacular texts as completely as possible, and to transcribe and comment adequately the multifaceted forms of appearence, using uniform editorial guidelines.
The edition is geared primarily towards medievalists of various disciplinies in order to make the melodies and texts accessible to them again or for the first time. An overview of the work should facilitate new perspectives on research topics already approached, while the careful study of details and coherencies among the works should inspire new (including transdisciplinary) research goals.
The eight volumes are subdivided as follows:

Vol. 1: Melodies and texts; A–D, No. 1–172
Vol. 2: Melodies and texts; E–H, No. 173–330
Vol. 3: Melodies and texts; I–M, No. 331–536
Vol. 4: Melodies and texts; N–Z, No. 537–750 and Addenda
Vol. 5: Melodies and texts; Cyclic Collections
