Can no longer edit the works list after adding a new work

It seems that the contribution process has changed: after adding a new work, the work is listed as "Other works not listed above", but when I try to edit the works list, the list is empty and only contains a template (#SortWorks:). How can I edit the list such that the new work appears amo...

Re: Composer versus arranger for parodies

I guess you are using the term "parody" in its serious sense? Yes, I had meant it in its broadest sense of taking a piece of music or text and transforming it into a different context. Although the piece I had in mind actually is a parody in its modern sense (with a humoristic or sarcasti...

Composer versus arranger for parodies

While the convention for chorale/hymn settings on CPDL seems to be to list as composer only the author of the choir setting and not the author of the melody, I wonder what should be done in the following case of a parody: the original melody was written for a 19c poem, and then later reused for an a...

Re: mp4 videos

Another alternative would be to upload your videos to a Youtube channel and then include links to them on CPDL pages. As these Videos can be a useful help for choirs learning a piece, I wonder whether there is a predefined category on a work page for recordings/videos? Should this go under "Ex...

Re: Morales/Gregorian chant: Ne recorderis

You can download an edition of the Liber Usualis from the Church Music Association of America: http://musicasacra.com/2007/07/liber-usualis-online/ Beware that it is not the original international Latin edition, but a localized edition with English texts (which is prefered by most readers, because f...

Re: Jose Miguel Galan editions

This will start giving us a sense of how often externally hosted scores are a sticking point or merely something people take us up on because it is presented as an easily available choice. This thread is already a month old, so it may be that the train is already gone. Nevertheless, here are my two...

Re: Modern vs Contemporary

Slightly off-topic, but somewhat related: does the chronological category refer to birth and date of the composer or to the style of the composition? For instance, I use for my own composition written in Renaissance style "Renaissance music", not "Contemporary", and would use &qu...

Cleanup of subcategories

Dear all, through the topic http://forums.cpdl.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6907, I have looked at the subcategories of "Sacred Music" and noticed that there are several duplicates, and some categories are a bit odd. I would therefore suggest to aggregate the following subcategories ...

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...

@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 unstres...

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 i...

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":

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 a...
