MuseScore files

Postby Nikolaus Hold » 13 Jul 2016 10:51

Yesterday I uploaded the "Musikalische Exequien" of Heinrich Schütz. Unfortunately there was no entry for the music notation software MuseScore, so I had to use "Other, Unknown" (I used the form "Add works").

Since version 2 MuseScore is a very good music notation software and should be added to your list of possible entries. You may argue about MusicXML, but in my opinion that's still more a dream and unreliable. Just last month, I tried to transfer a piece from MuseScore to Lilypond by MusicXML to see whether the print looks better. But the result in polyphonic lines was a disaster - useless.

If you accept my proposal, I would be happy if you could change my "Other, Unknown" in the page too, because I'm still not familiar with the wiki format.

Sorry for the belated welcome to CPDL and this answer. Thank you for your contributions, Nikolaus.
I added the ZIP icon to your file (which contains your three MuseScore source files zipped in one file).
I agree that MuseScore is an excellent and free music notation software and I've put a link to it just beside.
If XML doesn't ever give perfect results when converting from a software to another, it is less incomplete than MIDI
and is, for now, the best way to use your files for rehearsal (one voice louder among other, transposition for a specific choir, and so on) for anyone using an other software than MuseScore.
And I checked the result after importing the MXL files to Finale 2014.5. They look (and sound) more than correct.
