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 c...

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 "th...

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 m...

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...

Re: 3-part sacred anthems

If two part music is also ok, you can try some of my bicinia (for the English metrical psalm texts, see , e.g. the Canadian "Book of Praise" http://www.bookofpraise.ca/ ): http://music.dalitio.de/choir/dalitz/psalter-bicinia/ There are many three part settings on my website (see "Voca...

Re: What is the function of a choral anthem in worship servi

The congregation I work for is about to do a review of everything we do in our worship services. This is strange. Is your congregation not part of a larger church which has experts in liturgy? the answer "because we've always done it that way" is simply not going to cut it. Actually, a ce...

I've started a first draft at http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Help:Score_layout_tips -- please provide suggestions especially for additional items! While readable score layouts might be of concern to some, I consider it more important to improve the quality of the score contents . I would theref...

Re: "All Rights Reserved" edition hosted on CPDL

Given the main goals of CPDL as stated on ChoralWiki (see http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Help:What%27s_it_all_about%3F ), I think that any type of license that allows to freely download a score for personal use is compatible with the CPDL goals. No! This quote makes it clear that all editions h...

Re: "All Rights Reserved" edition hosted on CPDL

We should definitely ask her before changing the tag. Ok, I have just sent her an email to ask. I could not find an existing category or tag for CC-BY-NC-SA or other CC flavors of license. There are other flavours like CC-BY-SA or even CC-BY-NC-ND, and there is even a template to refer thereto {{Co...

While not attempting to speak for the composer, I do point out here relevant links: why-free page. download-music page. Oh, thanks for looking this up, I had not seen these notices. It might be a good idea to synchronize the copyright notices (CPDL already has a tag for CC-BY-NC-SA, I think). As I ...

"All Rights Reserved" edition hosted on CPDL

Dear CPDL admins, just noticed that the editions by L.D. Veitch, which are hosted on CPDL, bear the notice "All Rights Reserved". This means that these editions may neither be freely copied nor may they freely be used for public performances. Here is an example (see the notice at the botto...
