Re: CPDLnumber and Contributor Name

But I still don't get the "why" of it. Wouldn't it be simpler to automatically give a unique number to each uploaded file than to have NNNNNmidi, NNNNNpdf &c and not make people jump through the submission process hoops?

Re: CPDLnumber and Contributor Name

Max, Perhaps it has been laid out elsewhere already, but could you please expand on the rational for CPDLnumbers? As one of many different types of users it's hard for me to understand whether it's useful to anybody to use separate edition numbers for transpositions of (the same) edition, or letter/...

Re: Submitting minor rev of someone else's score

I would suggest contacting the original editor before changing the linked file, or else adding a "based on" edition. I posted a reformatting under the original editor's name at http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/St_Mark_Passion_(Orlando_di_Lasso) but this was a case where nothing but layou...

Re: Learning to play SATB simultaneously

If you can't find a teacher the most helpful thing for the choir would be to start with learning to play bass and chords. Here's an online primer: http://www.musikanalyse.net/tutorials/regola

Re: Byrd's Christ rising

My sympathies! I can see where "version with organ" might be taken at first glance as "arranged for organ accompaniment"; diligent comparison before the first rehearsal can sometimes pay huge dividends. To ask Ross to expand the description he added: "This verse anthem for E...

Re: text or translation

Ah, indeed template:Language adds Category:Works in French instead of Category:French texts. There would seem a certain logic then in reverting to having La gloire in categories Works in French, French translations, and English texts.

Re: text or translation

An interesting case, with logic on both sides. One would think from the documentation that template:Language adds the category French texts, while template:Translations adds Category:English translations, so no one would be shocked at spotting "La gloire…" in English texts if template:Text...

Re: When exactly is a cpdl edition number needed?

I had a look at http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Messe_de_Minuit_pour_No%C3%ABl_(Marc-Antoine_Charpentier)#Music_files today (but carefully avoided comparing the piano reduction to a copyrighted edition). There are some notes that apply to the whole edition rather than individual movements: would ...

Re: When exactly is a cpdl edition number needed?

I guess nombre = number, count or quantity, chiffre = figure (this can mean count as well!) or numeral, numéro = identification number. So one distinguishes between "number of editions" and "edition number". I'm all for consistency too, and agree with your guideline for counting ...

When exactly is a cpdl edition number needed?

I've been looking at the many unindexed Guerrero pieces at Nacho's website, wondering whether to make text pages with external links or submit add work forms, but there's a more basic question on my mind: who uses cpdl numbers, and what for, exactly? This seems to bear on whether a new transposition...
