The Chantilly Codex is one of the most well-known compilations of secular vocal music of the Middle Ages. It includes 113 pieces in French and Latin. Scholars debate the origin of the manuscript, placing its creation in the late fourteenth to early fifteenth century in southern France, northern Italy, or even further south in Rome. The composer Baude Cordier may have been the scribe of his two compositions. The manuscript boasts two delicate pen-and-ink drawings, two zoomorphic initials with border decoration, and an added nineteenth-century frontispiece.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
