Margarita M. Hanson Fund

supporting books on music before 1800

The Margarita M. Hanson Fund (USA) supports the publication of books in any language about music or musical culture before 1800. Margarita Hanson was publisher of the Éditions de l’Oiseau-Lyre between 1971 and 1996. Under her direction was completed the 25-volume Polyphonic Music of the Fourteenth Century, embracing over 2,000 compositions. She was decorated by Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1986 and by the Republic of France the following year; in 1992 she was awarded the degree Doctor of Music, honoris causa, by the University of Melbourne.

The Margarita M. Fund has been used to support the following publications:
