ReSounding the Archives

ReSounding the Archives is an interdisciplinary collaboration that brings together digital humanities, history, and music. Partners include:

The project’s goal is literally to “re-sound” the archives — to bring World War I sheet music to life through recordings and live performances. Students from Mason, UVA, and VT worked together to select, research, and record music, exploring history from new vantage points. The project website provides digitized sheet music, historical context, and usable recordings of each song.
