The Ricercar Lab aims to study and promote all musical expressions of the early modern period. We have three main objectives:
1. To enrich our knowledge of Renaissance music in all its aspects: repertoires, compositional processes, performance practices, global studies, theory, iconography, and organology
2. To construct databases and online repertoires
3. To promote musical heritage

Ricercar is hosted by the Centre d’études supérieures de la Renaissance (CNRS, Université de Tours, Ministère de la Culture).
