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 wou...

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 centra...

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 cop...

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...

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

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

If I remember correctly, they offer a reproduction service that is quite tricky as one must actually obtain a quotation from a third-party supplier who provides the reproduction services for the library. I have just received a letter from the library, but it is all in Italian and I am not quite sur...

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

it's from the opera "Ercole su'l Termodonte", RV 710 Many Thanks! Unfortunately, this does not make the search easier, because according to Wikipedia the score to this opera has been lost. RISM lists some manuscript copies of some tracks of the opera, but apparently this piece is not amon...

Looking for source of Vivaldi's "Vieni, vieni o mio diletto"

Dear collected wisdom, does anyone know from which source Vivaldi's little aria (?) "Vieni, vieni o mio diletto" stems? I was asked by a singer to accompany it on the theorbo, but she only showed me a copy of a modern edition (which one, she could not tell me) with a written out piano (sic...

Re: Settings for youtube videos?

I use imovie to make videos that combine a midi sound file with the sheet music, to help conductors and singers get a better sense of the piece. Even though many choir conductors ask for this, I fear that providing an automatically generated midi sound does more harm than good. The singers thus lea...

Where to add source?

Even though it is unusual on CPDL to give the source of an edition ;-), I have incidentally stumbled over an online facsimile of a print from 1573 that is the source of some editions on CPDL. As I guess that this might be useful for others (finding sources can be time consuming), I have added it to ...
