The series Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae (MMB)
has as its aim to make generally available the
musical traditions of the Byzantine era, which,
in spite of their importance for the study of
early music history, have not been easily accessible.
MMB contributes to the study of these
musical traditions through the publication of
facsimiles of musical manuscripts of the Byzantine
Rite, together with transcriptions and studies
of the notations, history, types and theory of
its music. MMB was adopted as a project of the
Union Académique Internationale in 1933 and
is under the administration of The Royal Danish
Academy of Sciences and Arts.
