Re: PDF previews on composition page

Thanks! I liked the revised format, even if we can't find a way to toggle previews off or if it's not worth the effort with this new format. Feedback from others on this hybrid interface approach?

Re: PDF previews on composition page

Thank you for the improvement suggestion. I personally value the less cluttered old way, which requires paging down less, but like the ability to see the previews. Would it be possible to have either (a) the editions listed at the top, kind of like a concise table of contents the way it appears now,...

Re: Help to identify a (copyrighted) edition of Scarborough Fair

Does using the search and preview option at SheetMusicPlus help locate the edition?

Re: H. Alexander Matthews: The City of God

One more possibility: if you wanted to try to borrow the scores, it would be worth searching to find out what choirs have performed the piece, and then asking if they are willing to sell or lend the scores.

Re: Good Websites with MusicXML-files?

Sorry I don't know of any sites. You could try CPDL.org's own search function to search on musicXML: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?search=musicxml&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go The scores are free and most have lyrics, but you would still need to evaluate the results to determine if they...

Re: Modern vs Contemporary

I strongly would prefer Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Baroque, Neo-Classical etc. Composite categories like "Classical music in the Baroque style", or still "18th century music in the Baroque style", "20th-century music in the Renaissance style" etc. get unnecessarily granular a...

Re: Mozart's Musings

I had classes with an English teacher in high school who took what may be a similar philosophy regarding cliches or common turns of phrases, wanting us to really listen to them and use them judiciously rather than in the sort of automatic way they tend to roll off the tongue. It's helpful to highlig...

Re: Mozart's Musings

Re: Question concerning source for "sur le jonc.."

I don't have any information about this, but asked Helene Whitson, Founder, San Francisco Bay Area Choral Archive (choralarchive.org). Here is her reply in case it is helpful: I don't know about this chanson's origin as a folk song. It is in the Oxford Book of French Chansons. The composer listed th...

Re: mp4 videos

My feeling is that this should go under External Files (which can indicate what the link is for). That's also more "arms' length" from a copyright perspective, if a video has multiple performers.
