I've done a version for SATB & Piano. Please go to http://dovetonmusic.com/Cat_Folk_Songs.html where you can view a sample. If you like it you can e-mail me your order. Apologies for the shameless self-promotion!
I note with regret that distinguished contributors sometimes post editions of wonderful and interesting music using the wrong clef for the altos and in unperformable and/or unlikely keys. I presume the music posted here is meant to be sung and listened to, not just looked at, so why not make life as...
Well, that just shows how diverse opinions can be, even amongst educated musicians. I have long disliked this norm which is being increasingly forced upon us, namely what Stephen and vaarky are advocating. Personally, I find it far clearer to have beaming follow the text underlay, so long as beams a...
We really should get back 'on topic', but you are quite right, Dave, Fellowes was pretty cavalier when it came to Dec and Can etc. etc.. However, I am at this moment holding TCM Vol 2 in my hand (it weighs a ton!), and, if you look carefully, it is possible to discern Byrd's intentions in spite of t...
My point was really a general one, but I do believe the Byrd piece I cite is most likely to be sung SATB, untransposed, as I find it unlikely that choirs are going to choose to sing pieces in which the altos have nothing to do. The Cantus Secundus is perfect for a counter-tenor and, in any case, an ...
Given that most users probably don't want to have to edit the scores they download (even if they have the software), might I suggest contributors use the normal treble clef for Alto parts? An example of an impractical choice (chosen at random from very many) is to be found in Byrd's 4-voice 'This sw...

Lassus did not write the text 'Peccantem me quotidie' as is stated on his cpdl page and others. It is part of Matins of the Dead (see note by David Fraser at the end of his edition of Byrd's setting).

Hello, Forgedglory. Yes, I did this for my choir last summer and haven't got round to posting it yet. I'll try to get round to it this week, but if it doesn't appear on cpdl, go direct to http://www.doveton-music.de/CatFree.htm SATB+Piano is a great medium and worth investigating by people who have ...

Just to let you know that Hymns A&M Historical Edition (1909) says: 'THE TUNE (Engelberg) is by Sir Charles V. Stanford, and was written by him for this edition'. It is Hymn No. 220 (Rev. Ed. 437.). Stanford apparently copyrighted the music in 1904, and it appears to have been composed specifically ...

Hello. If you have a vast range, try the solos in some of Purcell's anthems. If it is low bass notes in choral music you're after, then Ockeghem is your man, although neither composer will take you down to the murky depths you say you can plumb!

Latin pronunciation is indeed a can of worms! On the first, original point, given that Mozart was a German-speaker, it would seem to make sense to use a German pronunciation of Latin, which is what most German-speaking singers still do. On the specific word 'exaudi', Germans would spot that the word...
This is my 2nd attempt at creating an account (some gremlin deleted me almost as soon as I had greeted you all a few days ago) so I am hoping I really have arrived this time. I am already a contributor to cpdl as well as being a singer, arranger and choral director. My main musical interests are Eng...
