How do I find the advanced search feature

Postby Tpgettys » Wed May 17, 2017 7:58 pm

I saw in a FAQ that there is an advanced search function available on every page, but I can't find it.

I am sure a single example will reveal, so I am hoping someone will tell me how to find all works by William Byrd that is for 4 instruments/voices.

Go to the category page for William Byrd (Category.

What you're looking for in this case is the Category Walker:

Show works by type/instrument.

You'll probably have to separate out into two categories, I think: the chamber works for 4 voices and the vocal works for 4 voices. (The works for voices and instruments for 4 combined voices are yet another option; look over the resulting page. But taken all together you get

The vocal works for 4 voices show up lower down in the resulting page... (29 works for 4 voices, 1 work for 4 (non-vocal) players that's not an arrangement (http://imslp.org/index.php?title=Category:Byrd%2C_William&intersect=For_4_instruments&transclude=Template:Catintro - shows up on page _2_ of the category list, you have to click "next" at the bottom of the page...), several works for chorus that may be for 4-part chorus and need to be checked out separately if as I assume you're counting them. (Still work, but less work than going over the whole bldy category. Sorry!)
