Re: PDF previews on composition page

I'm IT illiterate, so pardon me if I'm completely off base, but what about a system like they have at IMSLP, where a preview image is about the size of a postage stamp but enlarges when you scroll over it? Another concern I would have is that some pages have 15, 20, or even more editions. All those ...

Re: Submitting a revised edition

A new, but related, question. My editions of Hassler's Cantate Domino a 5 , CPDL #39952, #39960 and #39961, http://www3.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Cantate_Domino_a_5_(Hans_Leo_Hassler) , were flagged with a score error. I've since corrected the error and revised the scores in other ways, and I've uploa...

Submitting a revised edition

I would like to update my edition of Gombert's Musae Iovis (#22734) http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Musae_Iovis_(Nicolas_Gombert) , I have revised the edition slightly and the editorial notes considerably. My concern is that if I simply overwrite the old edition with the new, its revised status w...

Re: Dido and Aeneas, Fowler edition

Hello Carlos, I've taken a copy of the Sibelius file for the complete score and of Greg Johnson's errata list. I'll have a look at making the corrections (I'll also have a look at my copy of the Novello edition to verify the errata). I expect to produce a new complete score and set of parts (with me...

Re: Modern vs Contemporary

'Contemporary' is a bit of a slippery term. Its literal meaning is 'at the same time', and refers to what is current at the time of writing, so what's contemporary now would no longer be so in the future. 'Modern' can be used in much the same sense as 'contemporary', i.e. music that is current at th...

Re: Latin help

I had the bright idea of submitting the question to a Latin forum and got this correction to the first sentence: Communions for the whole year which the Holy Roman Church customarily uses on its more solemn feasts, to be sung to the accompaniment of Organ music by one, two, three, four, five and six...

Latin help

I am currently working on an edition of a piece from Zielenski's Communiones and wish to include a full translation of the title page. The text reads: Communiones Totius Anni Quibus in solennioribus Festis Sancta Roman Ecclesia vti consueuit ad cantum Organi, per Vnam, Duas, Tres, Quatuor, Quinque, ...

Gregorian Intonations in the Mass

We all know about the use of Gregorian intonations for the "Gloria in excelsis Deo" and "Credo in unum Deum" portions of the Mass, but can anyone point me to any documentation about how these intonations are to be implemented? I've looked in vain in music history books, Catholic dictionaries and cer...

Re: What does "Capella" mean?

Praetorius in Syntagma Musicum vol. 3, bk. III, ch. 2 provides a series of definitions of capella (p. 124 in the Kite-Powell translation). 1. In imperial chapels of Austria and other Catholic countries, a separate choir was drawn from the various choirs and placed in a separate location. I'm not qui...

A forum for members' research?

Hello all CPDL-ers. Is there any interest in a forum where members submit small research papers for peer review and critique? I'm thinking about essays longer than are feasible to post in a forum entry. I have a number of topics I've been working on that I know would never make it into an official m...

Re: Allegri Miserere ornamentation

I was in my local sheet music store recently and had a look at their Allegri offerings. There is an edition by Rutter in which he details all the variant readings in previously published versions. In one of the falso bordone sections there is a passing C# that would create the Neapolitan harmony you...

Re: Allegri Miserere ornamentation

I have a recording of an alternative version by A Sei Voci . The divisions were written by a French musicologist whose name I can't remember (I'm not at home to check my CD). Unfortunately, while there is a 'Miserere' sung by A Sei Voci posted on YouTube, it's the track in which they do the 'usual' ...

Basso Continuo: to realize or not to realize?

I'm broaching this possibly sensitive area with some trepidation, but here goes. The trend I have noticed in recent scholarly editions of baroque music involving basso continuo in its various forms (figured bass, unfigured bass, basso seguente etc.) is to leave it alone. That is all very well for sc...
