This chapter describes first the process and problems associated with the production of an electronic database incorporating the texts of, some of the chants of, and information about 1200 late medieval liturgical Offices; and second the computer files and programs written to analyze and search the poetry and chants. These data are associated with the publications abstracted as RILM 2337 and 578. The results of several analyses of melodic motives are presented and discussed. Final comments relate in general to the use of computer for humanistic data processing.
