Re: Proper citation style for public domain text

Thank you for your input. From my understanding, it is considered good form to cite a source, even if the work is in the public domain, so that interested parties can go find the context of the quote (in the case of excerpts from longer works), and to hold us all accountable for keeping spelling and...

Proper citation style for public domain text

I'm currently composing a setting of Emily Dickinson's "To Make a Prairie" for SATB choir. Harvard University Press, which holds the copyright for many of her works has assured me that this poem has indeed passed out of copyright and is in the public domain. Is there a proper format for in...

Need a 2018 editions page?

I just ran the add works form for a new piece, but am getting an error because there isn't a 2018 editions page for it to go to yet. I don't want to go mucking around and break anything, so I'll leave it to the editors. The new piece in question is "Semantic" by Maggie Furtak. Do I need to...

Adding a new lyricist page

Hello patient moderators of CPDL, I have just finished adding a new work with a text by Pliny the Elder (Plinius Secundus) from his "Natural History" to CPDL, and he didn't seem to have a lyricist page yet. I've done my best to start one, but I'm not sure of the best way to deal with a few...

Not sure I added new edition correctly...

Would someone mind double checking my work? I just added an updated edition of my "Frog Song" piece. The new edition includes a piano reduction in the score and a few minor changes to the score itself. (Musescore has gone through several updates since 2013 and I know how to adjust formatti...

2017 editions

It seems we need a new page for 2017 publications... Just added a new work with a 2017 year and get an error because the 2017 page does not exist yet.

Happy New Year!

Re: I've been sorted, now unsure how to add...

Good to know, Carlos! I had seen that, but assumed it was just another way to get to the same place as the old "add work". I wasn't aware that it had new features.

Re: I've been sorted, now unsure how to add...

Ah ha! Thank you for taking the time to explain that, Claude. That makes better sense now. I know just enough to be a danger to myself and others, but I do like to learn!

Re: I've been sorted, now unsure how to add...

Thanks for your help, Claude, Does this imply that my new work should magically appear, since I have run the add works form? It has not. Is there another step where I still need to copy and paste the works code somewhere? Or, since the new piece has not appeared automatically, does that imply there ...

I've been sorted, now unsure how to add...

Hi all, At some point the format of my composer page was changed to sort automatically, and now I'm unsure of exactly how to add a new work without causing problems. I used to have the full list of works visible when editing, so it was obvious where to add the new works data, but here's what I'm see...

Add new work to Psalm page

1. Would someone in authority mind adding my new "Let Us Sing to the the Lord" to the list of settings of psalm 95? I found that page, but didn't want to upset the proper procedure by adding my work to the list myself, in case that process was somehow automated, or there was a particular w...
