Dr Salisbury was a choral scholar and subsequently lecturer at Worcester College, Oxford, where he completed a doctoral thesis on the manuscript sources of the liturgical Office in medieval England. His current work broadly embraces the sacred music of the late Middle Ages in England, focusing particularly on the texts and chants of the Mass and Divine Office. Dr Salisbury has published on other musicological and liturgical topics as well as issues in the study of late medieval manuscripts and printed books. As a contributor to DIAMM, he maintains an interest in the digital presentation of manuscripts as well as the use of computers to facilitate large-scale study. As one of the leaders of the Fragments Project, a multi-year arts and culture outreach programme in Scotland, Dr Salisbury’s research has been employed on a wider scale to bring medieval music, and present-day artistic expressions responding to it including new commissions, to audiences in Scotland, and elsewhere via the BBC.
