Re: Request pages

My first random test (Telemann: "Ach wie flüchtig") showed that an edition is available on IMSLP (part books in C clefs, text in "currente" script). Certainly usable by musicians accustomed to early music, but not the average parish choir. BUT, what prevents the requester from creating an edition hi...

Recommended way to provide background information to a piece?

Dear CPDL pundits, as I think that one of my pieces is incemprehensible without some background information, I have created a PDF summarizing this information, have uploaded the file to CPDL and linked it on the page of the respective piece. Here is the file in question: https://www.cpdl.org/wiki/im...

Re: How to post chorale (i.e.: hymn) settings in different languages?

please, divide the 'Music files" parts into "In Esperanto language:" part So the different titles should be given in the "Edition notes"? There is also the field "Title" under "General information" which is independent of the page title and can be set more than once. I have changed this page accord...

How to post chorale (i.e.: hymn) settings in different languages?

Dear all, often, I prepare editions of my chorale settings with translations in different languages. I am not sure how to post these editions: All editions on the same page with only the title of the original language (mostly German). Example: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Nun_lobet_Gott_im_hoh...

Multiple voicings with different number of voices

What is the correct way to indicate different voicings of a piece? There is the Voicings tag, but that requires a fixed number of voices. What if there are different editions that are arrangements for different numbers of voices? As a workaround, I have used two Voicings tags, but I wonder whether t...

Error when logging out

Whenever I log out from CPDL, I get an error "Log out failed due to session error. Please try again."
When I click on the link under "try again", the logout is completed.

Albeit it is only a nuisance and not critical, there seems to be a bug in the logout procedure that should be fixed.

Re: Songs of freedom and struggle

A modern grand master who still writes and sings such songs is David Rovics. On davidrovics.com you can find texts and recordings of many of his songs in the section "songbook". If you are interested in historic songs, try to locate the special archives in your country and make dates for visits. In ...

Re: How to list works by composer with voiceing/instruments?

Ah, this query is only possible for editors. It actually yields the list that I was looking for.

Now I only must remmeber to press "Cancel" after querying this list and not to press "Save" inadvertantly ;-)
A bit cumbersome, but it works.

Thanks for your help, Chris

Re: How to list works by composer with voiceing/instruments?

I cannot exactly figure out what your answer refers to. Are these hacks on the Wiki code that enable an automatic listing on the ChooralWiki page, i.e. somethind that must be done by a CPDL editor? Or are these options accesible to CPDL vistors? In case 2, is there an example somewhere how this can ...

How to list works by composer with voiceing/instruments?

While it is possible to search for works of a composer with a voicing known beforehand, I wonder whether it is also possible to obtain a list of all works by a composer that includes their voicing (plus the instruments of the accompaniment). It is a bit tediuous to click on every work listed on the ...

Re: Music for organ and small choir?

As you intent to show off the organ, you are presumably looking for music with an obligatory organ part and not merely with basso continuo accompaniment. What about Johann Nepomuk Hummel's Mass in B flat Major, which is available on CPDL? You can find for more classical (ie. Vienna classics) music w...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

To me, this looks much more confusing: where is the user supposed to click on to download the score?
A right click on the preview image would only save the preview image, but not the PDF.

Can no longer edit the works list after adding a new work

It seems that the contribution process has changed: after adding a new work, the work is listed as "Other works not listed above", but when I try to edit the works list, the list is empty and only contains a template (#SortWorks:). How can I edit the list such that the new work appears among the oth...

Re: Composer versus arranger for parodies

I guess you are using the term "parody" in its serious sense? Yes, I had meant it in its broadest sense of taking a piece of music or text and transforming it into a different context. Although the piece I had in mind actually is a parody in its modern sense (with a humoristic or sarcastic connotat...
