Re: Adding voicings to lists of works inside Text pages

Whether it's 'unnecessary' might depend on what the user has in mind. I don't know how easy it would be, but in principle couldn't the information from the voicing template be displayed on the text page listings? Then to make things maintenance-free there could be a parameter in LnkTxt to specify wh...

GABC files

At Musica sacra there is talk http://musicasacra.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=5539&page=1#Item_3 of transcribing large quantities of chant and making the code available for editing. This program is very tricky to install but pdf's can be made from text files via a web interface. Would the...

Solovoces hacked?

Today Safari gives me a malware warning when I attempt to go to Fernando Gómez Jácome's page. Should I be concerned? ~~~~

Re: Roman Catholic uses Psalm 13, 70, 100, and 130 in the y

http://www.bombaxo.com/rclcompp.html has a useful table comparing the Book of Common Prayer, the Catholic lectionary and the Revised Common Lectionary, but be aware that these are only the Gradual Psalms: many of the minor propers ( http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Mass_propers ) are bas...

Re: Voicing categories

2 & 3 part voicings have been well served; is there a way to make pieces appear on [[Category:7 part choral music]] & [[Category:9 part choral music]] as well as the subcategories (many of them empty)?

Re: How to present the Genre information

What if the template read "Genre categories:(names)", sidestepping changing plurals to singulars? Otherwise we seem to be dealing one by one with cases like "Genre:Tenebrae responsorie". :idea:

Re: Voicing categories

Hi Carlos, It's not only a question of searching by number alone: I just tried adding 7|SATB to The Bard of Eve and then went to Multicat search, but "number" is overridden by "voicing", that is, I got results for 4|SATB. Is there any present obstacle to having Number functional ...

Thanks, that does answer my question. Sounds like work, though :roll:

Re: Voicing categories

Maybe there's a concensus forming about some divisi being optional; in Britten's St. Cecilia they are ossia to the original SSATB soli version, now only available on rental. Another SSATB piece I love is Allen Shearer's Beauty is a Shell from the Sea: the few ten note chords at the end have never st...

Re: Voicing categories

I would guess there are as many one-per-part users as not of some of our favorite repertoire, like Ockeghem or the Eton choirbooks. A problem I see with minimum number searches is that it's just not as rewarding for an octet to sing pieces with the odd divisi, while it can be worthwhile for a smalle...

Sorting titles by composer

I was just looking at the O sacrum convivium settings at Category:Corpus Christi and noticed they're nicely sorted by composer first name. Is there a simple solution, or is that the reason IMSLP settled on the less elegant Title (Last, First) convention?

Re: that prolific and long-lived composer...

Sure: I was imagining finding [[Nobis Est Natus (Anonymous)]] in a subcategory of [[Category:Anonymous compositions]] named [[Category:Codex Speciálník compositions]], and fantasized that somebody could program things to achieve that with a code like: {{Composer|Anonymous}}<br> Publication: [[Codex ...

Re: that prolific and long-lived composer...

I just had another idea while looking at [[Nobis Est Natus (Anonymous)]]. Could the composer template be made to automatically subcatagorize anonymous pages that had a link in the published: field? Also stumbled on Category:Music facsimiles: how was this meant to be used?

Anglican chant

James Gibb pointed out on my talk page that the dropdown "Add scores" menu adds "Anglican Chant" as a subgenre choice with upper case C instead of the blue linked "Anglican chant". Can this be fixed easily or should a redirect be created? I'm afraid the disambiguation o...

Re: that prolific and long-lived composer...

Yikes, I moved a few things from Anon to Gregorian chant, which I'll wager is about to hit the 200 barrier if it hasnt already: this could certainly be organized in a non-A-Z fashion, given a(nother) volunteer (Gregorian Chant by Season categories?). If Anon were to be a category, I think it could b...
