Re: Wrong Haydn for Requiem in c

Yes, it's quite correct, it is the Michael Haydn C minor requiem. We already have an edition, so I've merged the pages. I didn't feel a need to put a redirect under Joseph Haydn since, as far as I can see, there has never been any question of the piece's authorship.

Re: Request page - Binchois

Alain, I've looked for any source of Amours mercy without success - it's not in any of the chansonniers or compilations at IMSLP. It's published in Die Chansons von Gilles Binchois , ed. Wolfgang Rehm (Schott, 1957). Since Rehm seems to be still alive (he's one of the main men on the Neue-Mozart-Aus...

Re: Monteverdi - Cantate Domino for 2 voices

And, as of today, IMSLP have it in modern notation as part of the Malipiero edition of the Complete Works: http://imslp.org/wiki/Mass,_Psalms_and_Litany_(Monteverdi,_Claudio) There are multiple publications on this page, but Cantate Domino is the first item in the publication entitled "First Section...

Re: everynote.com

My copyright notices have indeed been removed from everynote's first pages although, as I said, the fact that these old editions have been revised out of existence on CPDL makes that situation a bit murky. A better example is Marton Jakobey's edition of Monteverdi's 4-part mass - our edition here: h...

everynote.com

All, I don't know whether the site http://www.everynote.com has been previously mentioned on this site, but I just happened to notice that they're selling editions of mine that are (of course) available free on this site. I can't believe I'm uniquely favoured by them, so there are probably a lot of ...

Re: mr. henry noell lamentations - John Dowland

They're included in Stainer & Bell's Complete Psalms edition - see http://www.stainer.co.uk/acatalog/anthemsaf.html#aB168 . Edited by Diana Poulton, so doubtless scholarly, accurate and a great improvement on the old Fellowes edition. The MS source doesn't appear to be available anywhere online - it...

Re: "We Are One" by Allen Pote

The composer was born in 1945 and is still very much alive, so the song is far from being in the public domain. I see that various online stores sell a SATB arrangement for $1.90.

Re: Renaissance Motet Texts

I find the Hyperion note very puzzling - clearly a Latin text can't come directly from the BCP. Tallis's text is an antiphon at Matins for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (September 14th). To attempt an answer to the original question, the most common texts for polyphonic Renaissance s...

Re: Sinfonias available?

Your description sounds a lot like the instrument often known in English as the hurdy-gurdy. There's a very good maker in my part of the world called Chris Allen - you'll find him at http://www.hurdygurdy.org/.

Re: help with transposition

That sounds pretty much like what you can expect from Sibelius. I don't know whether versions 5 and 6 are any better, but 4 is quite good at wrecking whatever layout you've carefully set up if you apply transpositions or other changes. Have you tried selecting the whole score and locking the format ...

Re: Italian to English translation

That's not "normal" Italian, but some regional dialect. "Finto inno" is, I believe, "pretend hymn" or "fake hymn". I wonder whether "xe" is equivalent to "che" and "occi" to "oggi" in the standard language. I'm sure Max will be along soon with an informed opinion!

If you go to the Naxos website (http://www.naxos.com) and look up their Vivaldi sacred music series, you can read the booklet notes to each recording - follow the "About this Recording" link for each disc. All the pieces you mention are there apart from the Credo RV 591. The notes are fairly brief, ...
