Collaborative works & publications

I'm wondering how to list the composers of a mass cycle by various hands: perhaps [[Mass for 2 voices (Florentine school, F Pn 568)]] with Gheradello, ser Lorenço and anonymous contributors sharing a common composer page that's identical to the 'publication' page. One precedent I'm aware of is http:...

Re: Texts only

Category Text pages http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Text_pages has examples of text only pages; these are mostly for texts shared among several works. While I agree with User:Bobnotts about the primary aim, CPDL is under construction, and I've made an edition-less page myself at http://w...

Re: Multiple voicings with different number of voices

I find myself objecting to the conjunction "and" and have sometimes replaced Template:Multivoicing to obtain "or". Rakastava (Jean Sibelius) is a piece that exists in 2 different versions, so "TTBB and SATB" does seem appropriate in such cases. I still don't know exactly what the "number of voices" ...

max_user_connections

I had this message a few times last week and have;t been able to log in today. I hope I can rejoice that CPDL is a victim of its own success, rather than there being some other problem!

Re: Multi-category searches for solo voice

I see, but since "solo vocal music" only contains daughter categories like "solo voice" and is never going to give any work pages in a multi-cat search, it seems needlessly confusing to have a checkable box for it.

Multi-category searches for solo voice

http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Special:RunQuery/Multi-Category_Search has a box that can be checked to search for "solo vocal music" but gives a "No results found" message unless one goes further down (up?) the tree to chose something like "solo voice" or "solo medium". If one choses more than o...

voicing categorization

Template:Voicing automatically puts pages into category N-part choral music (by toting up the letters in the voicing category other than using the '''Number of voices''' field). I noticed that Template:Cat|VVVV doesn't accomplish the same: to add Tallis and Striggio arrangements to Category:11-part ...

Approximate dates

I wonder how http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Category:People_grouped_by_birth_year could be differently organized: There are an awful lot of empty 14c categories, and I'm pretty sure if it were a bar graph we'd see a lot of bumps around years ending in 0 or 5. On the one hand I like to leave cate...

Re: Updates to submission process?

Thanks, the next wanderer might be reassured by that note. You make an excellent point about "contributors" as authors; I was thinking instead of the use of the word for "host" on pages like this one (and an incidental debate with Claude on whether B. Todt counted as an "editor" in making the piano-...

Re: Updates to submission process?

I've (hopefully) activated that setting for you now I'll keep an eye out, but no notifications yet. As to the weird page where I left my query, could a brief explanation or a note telling people to ignore it be added? The field "Name of editor/contributor" is intended to identify the person who cre...

Re: Updates to submission process?

Since the forum bulletin boards don't show up on my CPDL watchlist I can be slow in acknowledging the thoughtful replies for which Max can be counted on! Still, 1. There are some very confusing redirects about which I asked here: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Form_talk:Add_work 2. The form asks...

I wonder if we could have a News link on the main page: I'm never quite sure whether I'm using the current AddWork form or not: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Form_talk:Add_work 2 unheralded and welcome developments I've noticed just lately are 1) the add edition tab on workpages fills in some w...

Re: Incipit for Victoria's Laudate Pueri

Victoria's piece is not incomplete, but an intonation is an elegant way to give the starting pitch. At vespers Laudate pueri would be sung with the antiphon Sit nomen Domini (p. 259 in my edition of the Liber Usualis), which alternatively could be said softly while the organ played.

Re: .mxl Files

Yes, I too got what looked like an error message when uploading, which seemed odd since there exists a Template:XML for the icon. A bit of staring revealed an "ignore warning and upload anyway" button.
