Good knowledge!

Many thanks for the erudite heads up, and apologies for the tardy acknowledgement.

Re: What does "Capella" mean?

Wotcher Max, Sorry to take so long to thank you for your input: I was hoping to deal with all replies at once and didn't realise that the silence would be deafening. I too think that an indication of geographical dispersal is the best bet, but still remains to be proven. I think I'm going to have to...

One learns some more theory every day. I was under the misapprehension that there were 17 major keys.

What does "Capella" mean?

I am embarking on some Venetian style motets, published in Nuremberg, 1615. The parts for Choir 3 (3rd choir of 4; 4 parts of 18) are individually and peculiarly entitled "Capella" (e,g.: XIV. VOX 3. chorus. Capella). I have not previously encountered this direction in partbooks works, alt...

Re: Adding voicings to lists of works inside Text pages

I agree. It is perhaps necessary to state the number of voices on these pages for disambiguation purposes (e.g. a 7, a19) (in those infrequent instances where an individual composer has made multiple settings) but to clutter the page with editorial pernickettyness of voicing or pitch at this stage o...

Re: Section for "new pope" music on main page?

The window of opportunirity to shift shedloads of an arrangement of "Smoke gets in your eyes" has already passed.
And Richard Thompson's "Woman or a man" is still in copyright, so there's no commercial benefit in insisting on the Pope Joan ceremony.

Re: lyrics hyphenation

The standard rule for lyrics hyphenation is either fully to understand the transliteration of the language in question, or to employ an underlay operative who does. You mention phonetics, but do not seem aware that all the words with which you are having difficulties are monophthongs, or at best dip...

Re: Help in creating new composer pages

You will first need to identify the correct and standard forms of the composers' names. The RISM directory http://www.hmt-leipzig.de/pdf/RISM_IndexB1.pdf will help elimniate the genitive forms and location details still included in your list. It will also establish a floreat period (in this case 150...

Re: Extracting the Michael

I've moved the work page to reflect Hieronymus Praetorius as the composer. Thank you, kind sir. My edition will be winging its way onto the site in the next couple of days. I now see that the M.Praetorius setting has been requested: I am considering withdrawing the download charge on my edition the...

Re: Extracting the Michael

Beside the legal question, there is the moral question of plagiarism, i.e. that an editor claims to have made an edition that in fact someone else has made. I consider this bad style and would urge contributors to name their sources, but apparently the majority on CPDL thinks otherwise. This was mo...

Re: Extracting the Michael

There is only one 8 part setting of "Ein Kindelein so lobelich" attributable to Michael Praetorius: it was published in Musae Sioniae, 1607, and I have had an edition on my website for a couple of years http://www.notamos.co.uk/113791.shtml (view/playback free, but pdf download subject to ...

Extracting the Michael

In advance of posting my own edition, I have added publication details and description to "Ein Kindelein so lobelich" (Michael Praetorius). All details on that page are correct with one exception. The piece was composed by Hieronymus Praetorius, NOT Michael. I should be grateful for someon...
