    Abstract:
    Despite the interdisciplinary nature of the Italian madrigal—a genre in which poetry and music often stand on equal footing—critical editions of this repertoire tend to focus primarily on the musical text, devoting limited attention to the often-complex philological tradition of the poems set to music. Likewise, most critical editions are devoted to the works of a single composer—as opposed to settings of the same poetry by multiple composers—and thus offer a rather segmented perspective on the repertoire, which is not conducive to the study of musical traditions and to comparative analysis. This paper proposes a new model for critical editions of this repertoire, one in which musical and poetic texts are devoted equal attention. To do so, we will provide an overview of a digital project that follows this model, namely the Tasso in Music Project (www.tassomusic.org), showing how it draws on both musical (Humdrum, MEI) and textual (TEI) encoding systems to render the interdisciplinary nature of its repertoire.
