Chopin's First Editions Online (CFEO) was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (Resource Enhancement Programme) from March 2004 to August 2007. The project's chief aim was to create an online resource uniting all of the first impressions of Chopin's first editions in an unprecedented virtual collection, thereby providing direct access to musicians and musicologists to some of the most important primary source materials relevant to the composer's music. 

The CFEO project had four key aims:

  • To create an online resource uniting the original impressions of Chopin's first editions in an unprecedented virtual collection
  • To provide comparative text-analytical commentary on the multiple first editions in this archive
  • To develop complex textual interlinking of this virtual collection and relevant excerpts of the Annotated Catalogue of Chopin's First Editions (co-authored by Christophe Grabowski and John Rink, forthcoming 2009)
  • To devise innovative technical methodologies for complex web delivery of this material, using advanced imaging techniques allied with relevant open standards for metadata and interface design.
