Re: A Copyright Issue

It might be helpful to encourage the editors to name their sources, so that end users can prove the public domain status against performance right societies or other third parties. Mentioning the sources can also prevent editors from relying on non PD material and save choirs relying on CPDL edition...

Lists in Forum not working

Hallo,

it seems that the list markup offered in the CPDL forums are ignored by the forum software. Here is an example:
  • first item
  • second item
Looks liek a bug to me,

Re: Lotti "Gloria in Excelsis" (C, 12/8)

Dear Christopher, maybe you already know this, but here is an instruction how you can help yourself in case of manuscript sources (there is also a catalog of printed sources, but that is difficult to access, becasue you have to travel to a library that has a copy of the RISM catalog): Go to the RISM...

Re: How long does it take to post a new score?

And in case you have MacOS X, the built in print dialog has a "PDF" submenu, in which you can choose "Save as PDF". No additional software required.

Re: Piece absent from external site

The link goes to the Werner Icking Music Archive (WIMA), which seems to have vanished/been merged with IMSLP. "Gib unsern Fürsten" is the second part of "Verleih uns Frieden" from the "Geistliche Chormusik". You can find the complete edition here: http://imslp.org/wiki/Geistliche_Chor-Music,_Op.11,_...

Re: psalms in accapella worship

There are different forms of psalm singing (alternating, antiphonal, metrical). Which form is most appropriate or your needs depends apart from practical considerations also from the religious traditions of your church. In the alternating mode, odd and even verses are divided between two groups whic...

Re: 3-part sacred anthems

Even though it is a good deal of time until advent and chistmas, here is a piece under the CC-BY-SA that hopefully exactly matches your needs:

http://music.dalitio.de/choir/dalitz/tollite-portas/

There is both a "catholic" and an "anglican" edition.

Hope this helps,

Re: High School general choir

Any chance you can add a translation to the works page? My French is not the best, so maybe someone with better knowledge of the French language should do it. I were interested in it too. After having a look again at the Facsimile, I have noticed that I had changed the tenor at the beginning of the...

Re: High School general choir

When a French text is ok, I would suggest "Le content est riche" by Sermisy. Beside "Doulce memoire" it was the most popular piece of the 16th century. "Le content" has a very comfortable ambitus for all voices and has simple, easy to learn lines interwoven in perfect counterpoint. If the text must ...

Re: Basso Continuo: to realize or not to realize?

As a lute player myself, I find editorial B.c. realizations very annoying, because they add little value while introducing tons of awkward page turns. From the practical point of view, an empty staff system above the bass line might be a good solution for those who cannot sight read figured bass. Th...

Re: keyboard for sectional rehearsals

What do you think about reconsidering your habit of practizing with a piano? Practizing with a piano is not only bad for intonation and musicality, it also costs more time: if you instead demonstrate how a section should be sung, you save a lot of time removing the bad habits of imitating the hammer...

Re: Hodie Christus natus est (Palestrina)

It seems to me that the metrical signs in this edition are complete nonsense, but to be sure, it were necessary to have a look at a facsimile. In any case I have never seen a metrical sign "4/2" in 16th century music, and "3/2" in the 16th century generally does not mean "three half notes" but "thre...

Source for text underlay "Tourdion"?

Dear all, does anyone know from where the text "Quand je bois du vin clairet" stems that is underlaid in the CPDL editions under the instrumental "Tourdion"? The music book "ars musica" (from which the editions on CPDL are presumably ripped off) gives a source for the music and only says the "french...

Re: Spargete Sospiri Luigi Rossi

What about diminutions added by the performers? If the singers are worth their money, their performance should not represent the written music. Independent from the copyright question, I wonder how it is possible to obtain a reliable edition from a performance. While it might be possible to subtract...

Re: Spargete Sospiri Luigi Rossi

From which madrigal book by Rossi is it and when was it printed? IIRC, I have seen some madrigal books by Rossi (it might have been Salomone Rosst, however) in a low cost facsimile catalogue. They drew my attention, because they had a written out theorbo continuo realization, something which is very...
