Re: Why not CC?

Hi Vaarky, Yep. Even though the CPDL License is firmly based on the terms of the GPL, it is nonetheless a different licence, and I believe has yet to be tested, by the usual method! The CC licences appear to have had way more eyeballs focussed on them. Looking back over some of the earlier posts in ...

Re: Huge congratulations...

Likewise. With due respect to Raf, who had done an enormous amount of work bringing CPDL to life in the first place and keeping it going through its first few incarnations, the move to a committee of management, and distribution of various tasks to team members with strengths in those areas, has bee...

Re: Why not CC?

Hi Vaarky, I think your first priority is correct. It is especially difficult to verify that copyright information is correct for new typesets, unless the editor/contributor has explicit knowledge of what sources have been used to create the new edition. I have a feeling there are a number of editio...

Hi Max, I have no explanation for the unpredictable ups and downs; the e-mail I sent to Raf yesterday during the middle of the more prolonged outage is as yet unanswered. The most recent 2 & 1/2 hour outage could be consistent with work being carried out on the server, but that is pure speculati...

Hi Roisin, The obvious suggestion is the international students' song, Gaudeamus igitur, which has long been sung at graduations, or any kind of student festival or function (and has been quoted in operas, and most notably features in the apotheosis of Brahms' Academic Festival Overture). There are ...

Hi David, the same person presumably registered here at the CPDL forums as "simius", as the email registered is captain1945nemo@yahoo.de - replying to the user using the messaging feature possibly may reach him. If the message you received was offensive (i.e. beyond being merely "nast...

Hi IdZ:

Is there any chance of CPDL being attacked in the same manner as IMSLP has been? You'd better believe it.

It would appear there's a very good reason why I haven't posted my choral score of Schönberg's Gurre-lieder to CPDL in the last 5 years.

Be alert, but not alarmed.

Regards, Philip

Hi Max, the book by Wolff (op. cit. infra) has a facsimile of the first page of the Stadler score (the opening of the Domine Jesu), which is used to highlight one modification (actually an improvement of the trombone parts) presumably made when Süssmayr incorporated the Offertorium in the presentati...

Huelgas Ensemble for me... as a friend once said, who could guess the sound of cetaceans breaking wind might be so melodious?

Hello! notating in Finale can be a fairly involved task, I wish you well! Hopefully you've looked around and noticed that there are a few requests for specific Vivaldi works to be edited, so that any new works you might contribute would be gratefully received: in particular, the solo motet Nulla in ...

Hi Eva, no idea I'm sorry; but his name is familiar to me (his work appears in the Old Berlioz complete works, which were published 1900 - 1907) and my Uni library holds a translation of his from 1927; therefore it is not unreasonable to assume he may have lived as late as 1936, which would mean his...

Hi Edward, To answer your two "can-of-worms" type questions about determining the pitch of the intonation, and suitability for the season. If the intonation were to lead into the corresponding Gloria or Credo of the plainsong mass, then the mode of the intonation would match that of the re...

Hi Rafe! yes, there is still a backlog of work to consolidate mass movements of complete works, which is still ongoing. Every so often I get a burst of enthusiasm and clean up one or two masses - for a while I was concentrating on the Requiems, since they have rather more movements than the typical ...
