This is the online version of Orbis Musicae, an international musicological journal published by the Department of Musicology of Tel Aviv University. While the journal publishes articles and books reviews (mostly in English, but with occasional contributions in German and French) dealing with all aspects of musicology, the editors have attempted in the past to emphasize the music of the Middle East and the Mediterranean basin. The pages of Orbis Musicae contain studies by some of the world’s best-known musicologists and are often illustrated with musical examples and other materials. The site includes Orbis Musicae No. 11 - 1993 - 94 and No. 12 - 1997.
