Re: Policy query, and complaint

On Davydov’s certainty that no slight was intended, I wish to withdraw my specific complaint. For the purposes of transparency, I will create a message which contains the text of my complaint if you wish to have that stored somewhere else on the forums as a matter of record, but out of sight. I am s...

Policy query, and complaint

To what extent are the Miscellaneous comments on work pages (i.e. under the Misc. Comments heading) intended to be for helpful comments that clarify or explain difficulties with a certain work?

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

I’ve now gone through the motets, which should finish off the Łódź scans of Pedrell’s edition. I’ll revisit these pages again in a few months if Nancho Álvarez has contributed some new revisions of his work that can replace or add to the collection already here. Finally, I have to report that the ta...

Re: Gigault organ scores

It does seem odd those two pages differ only by one using the ordinary vertical apostrophe mark, while the other uses the typographically preferred apostrophe — I would assume the one individual score on the page with the ordinary apostrophe has been misplaced. The whole set, whether diligently spli...

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

My monthly quota being restored, I’ve added the 15 remaining masses from Pedrell volumes 2 and 4. (I am not particularly inclined to add the obviously spurious Missa Dominicalis from Pedrell’s volume 8 but I am willing to have my arm twisted.) This leaves the motets in volume 1, most of which were a...

Re: ERROR? in Mendelssohn's Works List (U135 or 134?)

The Albumblatt is indeed U 134 — the error was probably introduced when the pre-existing MWV list was integrated into the existing Mendelssohn work list. (The MWV list used to look like this.)

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Was the particular complaint from publishers the usual one about user-contributed typesets? That one’s been a bugbear since day one of the CPDL era. I spent an hour yesterday going through a printed copy of a CPDL typeset circa 2000 (the contributor shall not be named and shamed), to see if I would ...

Happy 10th birthday, IMSLP

Belated anniversary congratulations, the actual date having occurred on Tuesday. Feldmahler’s contribution to the festivities has apparently been to implement a speed test for the various mirrors, results from which looks like the attachment here: Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 12.02.33.png (Yes.

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Having nearly used up my monthly internet quota I will have to go on the QT for a few days, before finishing off Victoria and Pedrell for the time being. Fortunately I have closed off all of the previous major repertoire gaps using the Pedrell and Álvarez editions: Antiphons were already complete, b...

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Still slogging my way through the Hymni totius anni, and I discovered the weirdness that is the alternate Pedrell Ave maris stella ( not the one published in 1581). Allegedly the version consisting of the odd verses was published 1600, except it doesn’t match up with either the 1600a or the 1600b fa...

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Thanks again Carl for adding the |Page Type=Collection to the Officium Hebdomadæ Sanctæ — I had forgotten that that was the magic invocation. I spent the morning ensuring that all 37 work pages have links to the 36 separate Pedrell uploads (from Łódź), or the current 35 new editions by Alvarez (I ha...

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Dear Carl, (I actually dealt with the hymns from volume 5 first, since they were more standardised and less fiddly; the Holy Week collection is much more a collection of all sorts of different types of sacred music.) Perhaps you can take a look at my recent submissions and see whether this meets how...

Re: Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Next up: Volume 5 downloaded — 34 hymns, and 37 works for Holy Week — this is one of the biggies. I’ll concentrate on the Holy Week works first, since these are justly famous and very frequently performed. The hymns… are not so frequently used. Splitting the hymns to 30 or so separate works pages is...

Tomás Luis de Victoria, Opera omnia (ed. F. Pedrell)

Hi all, someone who knew of my association with IMSLP mentioned to me that the pages for Victoria were a bit of a mess. I had a vague memory of cleaning up some of the pages for the twenty or so masses some years back, along with a number of the tenebrae responsories and antiphons — but the collecti...
