Lyricist vs. Composer

Post by dgol6384 »

Hello! I have composed a new text for a melody that was written in 1874. On the AddWorkForm, do I put my name under "Composer", or the name of the person who originally composed the melody? Thanks!

Put the composer's name in the Composer field, put your name in the Lyricist field.
