The project assumes gathering all available information regarding the preserved materials, digitalisation and publishing of the 17th century library, belonging to Prince of Legnica and Brzeg, Jerzy Rudolf, as well as finding the missing voices in the libraries all over the world. 

As a result, a website will be launched at, where all digitised materials will be hosted, along with their metadata, as well as the collection catalogue, description and history. Additionally, the website will also host the unpublished transcripts of some musical pieces.

The project will also encompass a series of concerts, which will present the exceptional pieces of Renaissance music, unknown for several hundred years, to a wider audience. They will be also recorded on 6 CDs and will be distributed to audio collections of the most important libraries of the world. The descriptions of Polish musical sources from this collection will be included in the international RISM catalogue in Frankfurt am Main.
