List of sources
The music sources of the Fondo de Música Tradicional can be divided into two large groups corresponding to the folkloric Missions and the Competitions organized by the former Instituto Español de Musicología of the CSIC between 1944 and 1960. The 65 Missions were comissioned to especific researchers, who were sent to the provinces to collect melodies and texts; from these Missions there are cards with melodies and texts, as well as the informants’ cards. From the Competions there are 62 notebooks that were presented; among them there are those presented by school teachers with songs collected from their students.
From here there are links to the basic description of each Mission and Competition; the list can be organized chronologically or by alphabetical order of researcher. The Competitions and Missions can also be selected by province; for a more detailed geographic search, though, see under "Locations" in the main menu. The titles of Missions and Competitions whose digitized materials can be consulted appear in capital letters; the rest of the materials are being catalogued, digitized and incorporated to this website on an ongoing basis.
