Re: Copyright: Carlo Rossini (1890-1975)

Interesting about the discrepancy regarding birth/date years! I wish that source had fewer typos. Should we annotate the composer's page with something like the note below right below the birth/death years? '''Note: Some [http://www.requiemsurvey.org/composers.php?id=2978 sources] indicate other bir...

Re: Modern vs Contemporary

I don't feel strongly on the subject, but I like the idea of the triple granularity in: Modern (c.1890–1930) Post-Modern (c.1930-1975) Contemporary (c.1975-present) I wonder if music history will keep Contemporary as the term a hundred years from now when there is a post-Contemporary category or two...

Re: Cleanup of subcategories

Similarly, Josquin's Nymphes and Absalon (http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Absalon,_fili_mi_%28Josquin_des_Prez%29 ) are both within Laments (I think Absalon should be under Sacred Laments or a subcategory of Sacred Laments titled David's Lament) , and I now think the unspecified term Laments shou...

Re: Mass not appearing in Masses category listing

I have always thought it would be much more useful to sort within each of those categories by composer rather than title. I think it's far more likely when someone peruses the Secular music listing that they want to skim to see what the composer options are rather than how many different pieces star...

Re: Mass not appearing in Masses category listing

I agree that search by Composer is more likely.

Re: Recordings of Epiphany Renaissance music

Some singers in our chorus use a keyboard app on their phone for quick portable note-checking; it can be very helpful in a clinch.

Happy new year!

Re: Repertoire ideas? Nature/seasons

Thanks for the ideas--I've forwarded them along and welcome any additional thoughts people may have.

Maggie, Frog Song is not too difficult at all and we welcome complexity.

Repertoire ideas? Nature/seasons

Any repertoire suggestions on the theme of nature and/or seasons for mixed-voice a cappella chorus (scores on CPDL or else available elsewhere), preferably by living composers? Examples of the *type* of sound we gravitate toward include Whitacre, Ticheli's Earth Song, Ola Gjeilo, Frank LaRocca, Ivo ...

Re: greetings, and a question

Max or one of the other folks can best answer about stats, and surveying users is also a possibility. Since we don't push announcements often, we may want to work in some additional CPDL-related questions. I'm familiar with Google forms and would be glad to work on a survey together if you like.
