Post by futurology »

Hi! Is there a way I can obtain an entire archive of the Choral Public Domain Library?

Thank you!

Almost all scores available on CPDL are copyrighted under various license policies, so this depends on the ultimate purpose: some purposes may be allowed only for a subset of the scores. Could you please specify what's the purpose?

As CPDL is a static website, you should be able to copy it with wget. Use the options --mirror, --convert-links and --no-parent, so that the page is viewable offline.

Beware, however, that you are not allowed to make the copy available to third parties (this is one of the drawbacks that non-free editions are hosted on CPDL).
