Re: Adding a new lyricist page

Hi Maggie! In fact, both Plinies, the Elder (Gaius Plinius Secundus) and the Younger (Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus), were Secundus , so the current title is dubious and needs to be changed. I'll rename the page to Pliny the Elder, just as on Wikipedia, ok? Thanks for your contributions to the si...

Re: Use of score for exam

I know it's too late for Rebecca, but it may be useful to others: I found a business card by Anne from April 2014 with contact information that may be still valid:

Re: Composer versus arranger for parodies

Hallo Christoph, Following CPDL conventions, the composer of the original melody would be dropped, but I wonder whether it is possible to add an entry field "Melody" below "Composer". I'd opt for adding some text to the Description: line, explaining that that setting was based on...

Re: Handel Chandos 8 Accompaniment

There is a scanned Novello edition at IMSLP which looks much better:

Re: Translation versus paraphrase

Hi Barry, Indeed, there are lots of paraphrases currently labeled as "translations" on CPDL. There are also texts with literal and less-literal translations (but not to the point of being a paraphrase, I guess). I agree with you that maybe it's not worth to indicate these nuances via diffe...

Re: No link to pdf download

Hello Thank you for informing us of this problem. The website that contains Abel Di Marco's works went through a layout change and the links from CPDL had not been updated. You should be able to find his Lux aeterna now, but be warned that this is a modern composition by Di Marco himself, not the wo...

Re: Listing two unrelated pieces w/same title on same page

The link was corrected, you can see the changes here.

Instead of letters, you may prefer to differentiate your Psalms by lyricist name: Psaml 1 (Watts) and Psalm 1 (Webber), for instance.

Re: Listing two unrelated pieces w/same title on same page

How do I get the info and files for CPDL#29428 to show up ONLY under "Shape Notes and Psalter" and CPDL#42618 to show up ONLY under "Christopher L. Webber hymns"? Can this be done without changing the title which shows up in the main CPDL listings as "Psalm 1 (Thurlow Weed)...

Re: Lyricist pages: LyricistSettingsList

Hi Barry,

Automated lists are fine, but I'm OK with a couple of exceptions. :wink:

I've seen your draft of the Isaac Watts page and it looks very good. I think your idea is worth a try. Would you like to create the new template yourself, or would you prefer me to do it?

Re: Lyricist pages: LyricistSettingsList

Hi Barry, I'm not sure I understood your proposal. Creation of TextAutoList was necessary because people didn't want to shift to TextSettingsList , which would make Text pages completely automated. So now, they are maintained by hand, and TextAutoList just helps us to know which works are left out o...

That's fine! I agree that that's the best approach for now. The difference in style seems to be striking, indeed.

Re: Aleotti sisters

Oh well, things are not so simple as they seem: the German Wikipedia article counter arguments saying that Raffaella was the name Vittoria took when she entered the monastery at fourteen. They probably based their article on the Grove's entry on Vittoria, that reads: "(b Ferrara, c1575; d after...
