Re: recordings for composers

what I got trying to translate it using Google translate. Tried the translation of the Latin text into German out of curiosity, and the result is far from meaningful. It seems that Google translate is not aware that Latin, unlike English, is a language with declination and conjugation. wisdom is no...

Re: recordings for composers

@carlos: I think that Susan does not refer to the O Antiphone "O Sapientia", but to a different text which you can hear sung in the style of a Fado here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sstoCsyfIP4 Despite the hexameter with medieval pronounciation (meter is created by stressed and unstressed syllab...

Re: recordings for composers

Dear Susan, I am glad that you like this setting. This shows that renaissance counterpoint is timeless and there was good reason why it ruled for about 150 years unaltered. Incidentally the Renaissance is still called in German the "classic" time of vocal music (which might be translated into Englis...

Re: recordings for composers

The recording of your Magnificat is wonderful.
Thanks for the hint, which has pointed me to Matthew Curtis' offering.
Here you can hear him singing my "Ubi caritas":

Empty link to Buxtehude work

Dear all, on the Text Page to "Christe, du bist der lichte Tag" http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Christe,_der_du_bist_der_helle_Tag there is a dead link to a work "Befiehl dem Engel, daß er komm" by Buxtehude. I could not find a work on CPDL by Buxtehude with a similar title. Does someone have an ...

Re: Lyricist field for settings of bible texts

There seems to be some confusion about the term "version". What Carlos and Richard mean, these are actually chapters, and I do not think that "Lyricist" is the appropriate field for this information. Some pages use a (non standard?) filed "Text source", which might be appropriate for this. Currently...

Re: Lyricist field for settings of bible texts

Thanks for all the interesting thoughts. I must admit however that my original point was much simpler: how shall I specify the Bible Version (i.e. the translation )? Every setting of a bible verse is based on a specific translation: Vulgata, King James, Luther, and so on (translations still under co...

Re: Lyricist field for settings of bible texts

How useful would that be for users? I'm not a conductor, so I have no idea if they search works starting from the biblical text. Yes, I think this is usually the way church choir directors search works: the first step is to look up the propers (biblical texts sung as part of the liturgy) of the day...

Lyricist field for settings of bible texts

Dear all, just posted a new setting of the passion after John http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Johannespassion_%28Christoph_Dalitz%29 and wonder what the correct entry for "Lyricist" is. It seems that, on CPDL, for biblical texts the lyricist information is usually left empty. IMO it would be howe...

Re: How can I post orchestra part scores with main score?

A ZIP file is a bit cumbersome to handle, because you must first download and unpack it to decide whether it can be useful. I would instead suggest to concatenate the PDFs of the individual parts into a single PDF, which can e.g. be done with pdftk (a cross platform freeware PDF-Toolkit) with pdftk ...

Re: Trad_Title_(Traditional) vs. Trad_Title_(Arranger)

The problem of different settings of the same tune does not only occur for folk tunes, but also for chorales. Just checked how this is solved in CPDL for "Vom Himmel hoch" (melody by Luther, arrangements by almost every major composer), and this seems to be the perfect solution: one central page lis...

Re: Giovanni Legrenzi, Lumi, potete piangere

It would be helpful to know from which opera or cantata this piece is. There is a recording by Rial & Jaroussky and L'Arpeggiata of the piece, so I guess it is a duet with basso continuo. Maybe the liner notes of this CD list the source. Once you have it, you can find locations of manuscript copies ...

Re: Choice of Clefs and Keys

Contributors sometimes post editions of wonderful and interesting music using the wrong clef for the altos and in unperformable and/or unlikely keys. Hey, the wonderful thing about the sharing economy, of which CPDL is a part, is that you can make your own edition and post it again. What you find a...

Re: Looking for source of Vivaldi's "Vieni, vieni o mio dile

To close this thread: I have posted an urtext edition of the manuscript copy of this little aria under Vivaldi's works at CPDL.
