website with choral music not on CPDL

Post by rich_enough » 08 Sep 2011 18:47

Is anyone familiar with these sites? They have a number of scores by Renaissance composers (which look to be of good quality) that I do not see on CPDL.

Interesting sites, I didn't know any of them!

The first one offers some good quality scores (and sometimes also midis) edited by Art Levine, mostly for free; the second site (philomela.net) seems to have just first-page samples of various editions by Dennis Collins, which can be found for sale on still another site (www.primalamusica.com)

I've been to Art Levine's site a few times in the past. He has already contributed more than a dozen of his editions to CPDL.

I have corresponded with Art. He wrote that he had posted editions in the past and would post more but finds the process time-consuming now. I've asked him to contact me so we can discuss how CPDL volunteers might help. I haven't had a chance to look at the other collection, but will.

If I recall correctly, much of what is on Art's site is already on CPDL.
