ABSTRACT
The music archives in the Abbey of Montecassino and in S. Domenico in Ortona provided the basis for a thorough-going cataloguing project, based on international cooperation that not only involved setting up systems for timely project completion and reporting but also required the establishment of analysis and verification systems that resulted in the correction of historical errors in the collections.
