New FONCA-RISM project in Mexico City | FONCA-RISM: Nuevo Proyecto en la Ciudad de México

We have received the following announcement from John Lazos (RISM Mexico/Canada):

Dr. John Lazos, who has collaborated with RISM to catalogue over 500 music works from Mexico, just received a grant from FONCA (Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes). This grant permits Dr. Lazos to catalogue around 450 music works from the Archivo Musical del Colegio de Vizcainas (AMCV, RISM siglum: MEX-Mahn), an archive that holds the music collections from three different religious womens' schools that were active in Mexico City between the 16th and the 19th centuries. The music works from the AMCV will be accessible through RISM’s database sometime early in 2019.
