See [[User_talk:Esperanto41]]. Esperanto41 20:34, 8 January 2013

Hi Carlos, thanks for the warm welcome! The funny thing is that I before this weekend never contributed anything myself to CPDL; all my work as contributor consisted of sending Rafael e-mails with links to my contributions to the Icking Archive, and he did the rest ;-)
 +
So there is much to learn for this old new contributor.  
  
== Tables ==
+
And this leads me directly to my first question: All entries of my old contributions are only links to the composer's name on IMSLP (where the Icking Archive has been moved). I would like to upload those files to CPDL and adjust the links accordingly. Is it enough to upload the files and change the <nowiki>{{website|wimabycomp}}</nowiki> entry into a <nowiki>{{filepath:...}}</nowiki> entry?
  
Carlos, a rather belated thank you for pointing out {{tl|Top}}, {{tl|Middle}} and {{tl|Bottom}}. Infinitely easier than the code, which I could never remember! I've taken on inserting it whenever I come upon a table in the old format, since I'm sure others will find it as useful as I do when they spot it.
+
TIA for now - I am sure there are more questions to come.

:Hi again, Ulrich. That's it, replacing external links with local files is that simple! Taking ''[[In dedicatione templi (Gregorius Trehou)]]'' as an example, currently we have:

:::Hi Richard! You seem to have found out by yourself how to do it, that's great. Best, —[[User:Carlos|Carlos]] [[User talk:Carlos|(talk)]] 02:38, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Have you considered using the [[Wikipedia:mw:Extension:Translate|Translate extension]], which allows to easily make your MediaWiki multilingual? It makes you save enormous amounts of time which otherwise is wasted on templates wizardry, manual synchronisation of pages and so on, scarying off most translators; and offers many other aid to efficient translation.

::::Hey Carlos, shouldn't have you said to Ulrich that his files are yet somewhere on our site (according to Max) so he doesn't even have to upload them! Let's ask Max where they are and I will gladly help Ulrich to restore the file by file direct links instead of drowning users into whole-work composers pages, as discussed on the forums!
Now it's also available in handy [[Wikipedia:mw:MediaWiki Language Extension Bundle|tarball bundles]].
 
The page explains how to get help and more information, and there is extensive documentation; asking on #mediawiki-i18n @ freenode is probably your best chance for immediate assistance if needed.

:::::Hi Claude, it's not that simple. As Max explained on the forums, the WIMA backup stored on CPDL servers is not directly accessible from this wiki. Currently there isn't a way to link to these files from a works page, unfortunately. But if we decide for converting the backup into a mirror site, as I propose on that same forum thread, then the extra work of re-uploading the files to CPDL can be avoided.

Hi, Carlos. Thanks for the welcome. I've used CPDL quite a bit over the last few years and want to contribute back to it as I am able. Thanks, too, for clarifying my posting of a literal translation. (I'm still learning wiki conventions.)
 
 
 
== Thanks and update to Batten work ==
 
 
 
Carlos -- thanks for your note welcoming me back to Choral Wiki!  It prompted me to look and see what was the first thing I uploaded.  Then I noticed my correction for Batten's "Haste Thee, O God" was in a hard-to-use format.  These days I can easily make a PDF, so I did that and uploaded it.  That also spells the composer's name correctly!  I think I entered the information properly to create a new edition and I separately uploaded the PDF under the same name. But you or another editor will probably need to review and make sure everything is correct.

Hello Carlos, yes, you are right: I (christoph Lahme) am the Editor. Z.58b is not the 'opus-number' for all of those settings of "Thou knowest", but only for that revised first setting I contributed. Moreover it's part of the Funeral Sentences (1672, 1677), but not composed for the funeral of Queen Mary.

== Jean Gilles Requiem ==
+
== Palestrina peccantem ==
  
 
Hello Carlos,
 
Hello Carlos,
  
Thanks for your welcome,
+
I've just added a page for Palestrina's motet "Peccantem me quotidie," but after it went up, I realised that I had uploaded the wrong PDF (for "O magnum mysterium" rather than "Peccantem"). I removed the PDF from the page, but now I can't for the life of me figure out how to add the right one in. Sorry if I'm simply missing something really obvious on the site... but I would like to know how to upload the correct PDF to the newly-created work page. Alternatively, I could also send you the PDF if you think it's better off in your hands.
as you know i am new as cpdl user,
 
and slowly learning howto etc.
 
 
 
The Jean Gilles Requiem is found on a french website,
 
but it was very hard to trace and i can't find the original location anymore.
 
Also googling ( by three separate persons ) did not give results.
 
  
The cpdl is much used by me as i am making rehearsal files

Sorry for your trouble, but thank you!
for several choires i participate.

== Composers sorted under [ ==
  
You will see that I have jazzed up this page, adding a bit of 17th century glamour. I have also uploaded images of Morales and Juana Ines de la Cruz (they are both public domain). Feel free to do any tidying up you think is appropriate (e.g. dividing the list of composers into columns - I could not work out how to do this).
+
There are a couple of composers appearing at the end of the composer list, sorted under [. I can't see why, but you might be able to sort it out, Carlos. (Obviously not urgent, since both have only one composition listed.) [[User:Jamesgibb|Jamesgibb]] ([[User talk:Jamesgibb|talk]]) 07:12, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
 +
:Hi James, the explanation is simple: when Claude edited these two pages to fix their sort key, he removed the template {{tl|NameSorter}} but forgot to also remove the curly brackets around it. The result, as in [http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Johannes_Werlin_I&diff=608926&oldid=608925 this case], is that the sort key "becomes" a template named {{tl|Werlin, Johannes}} that returns a red link to <nowiki>[[Template:Werlin, Johannes]]</nowiki>, hence the square bracket. I hope Claude will also read the explanation above. Regards, —[[User:Carlos|Carlos]] [[User talk:Carlos|(talk)]] 14:25, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

:::Too late, Claude, I've already fixed the sort keys. ;) But you don't need to click 13 times on "next 200" to get to the end of the list, just use the alphabetical index at the top and click on "Z". —[[User:Carlos|Carlos]] [[User talk:Carlos|(talk)]] 15:02, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Carlos, I'll try. There are folksongs most in Moravia and Slovakia, which cannot be arranged too much modern. And Mr. Uherek was from Moravia and he felt how they should be sung and therefore he made them in somewhat simple harmony, but what is most important for these songs is agogics. And that cannot be heard from computer-made MIDI. Maybe some of Moravian or Slovak songs could be found on youtube. I am not much good in English, hope you understand me. Best regards, Jan

Might I suggest a new category for "psalms"? Many psalms are used as the basis for hymns, but others have a quite distinctive style. They are not motets either. Examples of composers who used the psalm format include William Lawes, Francisco Valls and John Callcott.

== Updating [[Ego sum panis vivus (Pierre de Manchicourt)]] ==
  
Sorry about that, Carlos. I have been assuming (wrongly) that the only page likely to link was the composer page, where I've been bypassing the redirect page fairly consistently, I think. In future, I'll do a proper check on "What links here" (which I had failed to spot!) and make any other changes necessary. I'm really just doing it for tidyness, but if you think that there are potential risks involved that I'm unaware of, let me know.
+
Hi Carlos,
  
By the way, I think the solution you came up with for Pange lingua/Tantum ergo was elegant and should satisfy everyone. (Perhaps that's a forlorn hope!)
+
I'm confused at the moment by the "Upload a new version of this file" button at [[File:Ego sum panis vivus (Manchicourt) -2 - 2016-10-20.pdf]].

Carlos, there appear to be two separate editions of this, one with Vivi for Vivo, but both with the same number. I've tried tidying it, but seem to be making a mess of it, since what I expected to happen when I moved a page, didn't happen! Much safer therefore for me to leave it to the experts. (I've inadvertently created a page called Vivi ego dicit Dominus temp (Ludwig Senfl) but haven't deleted it, lest I make matters worse!

Dear Carlos,
  
Thanks very much for completing the English translation of Veni sponsa Christi, by the way. I got interrupted halfway through and, by the time I got back to it, you had  already done it.
+
Can you help me out, please? I have made a pig's ear of uploading some editions. One is an edition of an Anonymous "Asperges me". After uploading it I realised that I should have entitled it "Asperges me (Gyffard Partbooks, 2nd setting)" but my attempts to amend this have gone haywire.

:Hi James, thanks for catching this; the "Vivi" page was indeed a duplicate of the other one, so I deleted it. Usually I keep the older page, but these two were posted only two days apart, and the one with the correct title was also more complete, so it was kept. If you tried to rename ''Vivi ego dicit Dominus'' to ''Vivo ego dicit Dominus'', you probably saw a warning message informing that the page with the new title already existed, and asking if it should be deleted first. This is usually done only when we wish to merge both page histories, otherwise it's better not to continue :) Regards, —[[User:Carlos|Carlos]] ([[User talk:Carlos|talk]]) 16:11, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Secondly, a weeks ago, or thereabouts, I uploaded three hymn arrangements by Stanford: "O God our help in ages past", "As now the sun's declining rays" and "Thou art the way".

Brian Marble has contacted me about his recently uploaded edition, where the file links don't work.

:As for Stanford's three arrangements, you seem to have used the automated AddWork form for the first of them, but then used the old, manual form for the other two.

== Christi virgo dilectissima ==
  
Hi, I just noticed I made a mistake in a score I uploaded.
+
Dear Carlos,
  
How do I go about removing it and uploading a fixed version (and if possible without having it display that 'withdrawn at the request of the editor' message)?
+
Please help me out. I have been trying to upload an edition of John Sheppard's "Christi virgo dilectissima". For some reason CDPL has insisted on uploading a completely different pdf file ("Non conturbetur cor vestrum"). I have tried everything to change this to the correct file, including deleting the whole page, but CPDL won't co-operate. Could you please clear the decks so that I can try again? This site really does seem more trouble than it's worth. :(
  
Thanks,

The *really* bizarre thing is that I have not even saved "Non conturbetur" as a pdf file on my hard drive yet!

2. Alessandro Scarlatti - much improved. Wish I'd thought of it myself!<br>
 
3. I've been careful to check ''what links here'' before deleting any redundant pages. However, I've noticed that some links remain (e.g. Editions 205xx) even though, when I check them, the updated file(page) name is displayed, rather than that of the one I am considering deleting. (I don't delete in those circumstances. Is it because the pages concerned don't take account of redirects automatically?<br>

:Hi Jason. It's really bizarre, because there's no trace of doubt that you have uploaded a version of ''Non conturbetur'' on the 24th, but gave the file the name [[File:Sheppard-ChristiVirgo.pdf]]. You then uploaded the correct work (''Christi virgo dilectissima'') on top of it four times in a row, overwriting the wrong file. However, you may have continued to see the first file (''Non conturbetur'') because it was stored in your browser's cache. As you can see, it was not CPDL's fault this time. :-)  I have restored the page that you had blanked and made some minor corrections to it.

Once again, thank you very much indeed. I really am indebted to you. Yes, clearing the browser cache has solved the display problem, but I still can't work out how the problem with the wrong file arose in the first place. It must be something I did. Anyway, all's well that ends well.

== La la maître Pierre ==
+
When the time comes to clean up the John Sheppard page, I wonder whether something could be done about the categorisation of his works. Hardly any of the compositions listed under the "Motets" heading are actually motets: most of them are either responsories or hymns. Ditto those under "Other Latin Works". I'm guessing that this is a result of CPDL's automated processes. If you feel so inclined, they could be re-ordered as follows:  
Hi Carlos, I've added a "misattributed" to Susato's [[La la Maistre Pierre (Tielman Susato)|Maistre Pierre]]. Is it possible you mistook the mention "Susato" as meaning the composer, while Sabine just intended it as a mention of the editor?  I've got the facsimile of the 11th book here, and it clearly states Jacob Clemens non Papa as a composer. If so, could you merge both pages?  Cordially, [[User:Jkelecom|Jkelecom]] ([[User talk:Jkelecom|talk]]) 10:39, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
 
  
:Hi Joachim, it was Bobnotts who renamed that page, probably misled by the editor information added by Sabine in her edition (as you correctly noted). The attribution was corrected and the works merged in the original page. Please note that the title with the original  spelling "Piere" is widely unknown, returning only a handful of results in Google [http://www.google.com.br/search?q=%22La+la+Maistre+Piere%22]; that's why the modern spelling was chosen instead.

Hi Carlos, A few minutes ago I used the Add New Work form to create [[Sharon (James P. Carrell)]]. Since it is an ''a cappella'' work, I entered that in the Instruments blank. But when I got to the page, there was an error message across the top, about a missing ) in a Multireplace.php program. The page was created correctly, except Instruments was blank. I tried inserting ''A cappella'' in the Instruments template, but it didn't work, I got the same message. I managed to get around it by typing <tt><noWiki>'''Instruments:'''{{Acap}}</noWiki></tt>, which gave the same result, it appears (the page was added to Category:A cappella). By the way, I looked at Template:Instruments and noticed that it was editable by me; it should be protected, right? (I did not edit it). Anyway, I thought you should know that this happened.

Hi Carlos,

== Bug in template PostedOn ==
  
I was contacted by the manager of a composer whose work I uploaded here.  
+
Hi Carlos.  I think your 'localizing' the month changes to PostedOn have resulted in an error. Today (October 26th), PostedOn lists my score [[A Hymn for St Cecilia (Charles H. Giffen)]], but the score was posted on September 26th, not October 26th.  The problem is that I also posted editions for the instrumental parts on October 1st, and that seems to have fooled the template PostedOn, which looks at the posting day (26) for one edition and the month (10) for another edition and decides that a score was posted on 10-26.  I only noticed this because today my work is listed at the beginning of the works posted for today (2018-10-26), since it is first alphabetically.  Here is the result of <nowiki>{{PostedOn|2018-10-26}}</nowiki> (which will probably only be valid for today (or perhaps until the end of the month?).

Dear Carlos,
 
Dear Carlos,
  
3 questions; I hope easy ones! 1) I started making a table at [[Souterliedekens]] and am puzzled by the behaviour of the incipit field: it lists them in reverse numerical order on the first click, only alphabetizing on the second click. 2) Are the slashes (Psalm 140/141) in the red-linked titles a potential problem? Nested parentheses seem less elegant... 3) how are piped Ps. No.'s handled?  Tia! [[User:Richard Mix|Richard Mix]] ([[User talk:Richard Mix|talk]]) 05:14, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
+
I was wondering if it were possible for me to see some statistics (downloads etc) of my contributions? I get the occasional question from a user who took the effort to find my contact, but that doesn't give much information.
 
 
:Hi Richard!
 
# That's strange... for me it seems to work correctly ''on the first click''. If I click on a column for the second time, even if another column has been clicked in between, it then sorts the column in the opposite order. I guess this is standard behaviour.
 
# I would suggest avoiding the slashes in title by keeping only the Vulgata number in it. If I'm not mistaken, that's usually how other works based on the Vulgata give this information in the title. Inside the page, the conversion is already made explicit in the Text & translations section, when {{tl|LinkText}} is used.

Hi Carlos. Thanks for the welcome. cpdl.org is a great place for posting my free scores. Hoping they will be a bit of some use for others. By the way: is there any method to read how many downloads are made on the scores? Kind regards, Pascal.

== Musica Colonial scores ==
 
 
 
Carlos
 
 
 
A choral director in Vermont has asked me if I can supply a translation one of the Musica Colonial scores, Nebra's "Rompan los vagos espacios" which he wants to perform. Obviously a translation is needed if it is to be performed in an Anglophone country. My Spanish isn't really up to this. These scores are often very obscure. Do you have any ideas? I realise of course that your native language is Portuguese, rather than Spanish.

== Yaroslav versus Yaroslavsky Chant ==
 
 
 
Hi Carlos.  I noticed that you have replaced "Yaroslavsky" with "Yaroslav" while referring to a particular form of Slavonic chant.  For the piece in question ("A mercy of peace...") the work is listed as: "Yaroslavsky Chant - for the Liturgy of St. Basil the Great - g (618 KB)"; moreover, in the PDF score itself the source is cited as "Yaroslaskago rospiva" (Ярославскаго распыва).  "Yaroslav" is a noun, while "Yaroslavsky" (while sometimes a noun) is an adjective form for "Yaroslav".  It's no different than the situation with "Gregory chant" or "Gregorian chant", or "Kiev chant" or "Kievan chant" (in both cases, the second form is correct).  Can you cite a reason for your change?  I'm totally mystified by this! &ndash; [[User:CHGiffen|Chuck]][[User talk:CHGiffen|<sub><small>'''talk'''</small></sub>]]&nbsp;[[User:Charles H. Giffen|Giffen]][[Charles H. Giffen|<sub>'''♫'''</sub>]] 16:15, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
 
 
 
:Hi Chuck. I'm aware of the difference in meaning between the two terms; I made extensive searches for both expressions "Yaroslav[sky] chant", and references for both are extremely hard to find on the internet. The only site using "Yaroslavsky chant" is the one from where the CPDL score comes ([http://www.rocm.org/e_getmercy.htm]); all the other results on Google are in fact just references to this same work ([http://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=%22Yaroslavsky+chant%22+-cpdl+-scorser+-primanota]). On the other side, "Yaroslav chant" is cited a couple more times on websites directly related to Russian Orthodox music ([http://music.russianorthodox-stl.org/music_liturgy.html] [http://www.stseraphim.org/choir.html] [http://www.podoben.org/mixed_liturgy.html]), and in a book digitized by Google ([http://books.google.com/books?id=faZlAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA171&lpg=PA171&source=bl&ots=I6hxJlIPA1&sig=DZQBuVY4uN2psMQCMNLG2wLRgQw&hl=pt-PT&sa=X&ei=TPc_VLn1B8_NggSU7ICoBg&ved=0CDcQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=%22Yaroslav%20chant%22&f=false]). So, mine wasn't a completely uninformed decision, even though I cannot affirm that the current form is the most correct one. Grove has no references to this kind of chant, maybe you could help to settle this issue if you happen to have books on this subject at hand. —[[User:Carlos|Carlos]] [[File:Email.gif|link=User talk:Carlos]] 17:22, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Moving weblinks to local links

Hi Carlos, thanks for the warm welcome! The funny thing is that I before this weekend never contributed anything myself to CPDL; all my work as contributor consisted of sending Rafael e-mails with links to my contributions to the Icking Archive, and he did the rest ;-) So there is much to learn for this old new contributor.

And this leads me directly to my first question: All entries of my old contributions are only links to the composer's name on IMSLP (where the Icking Archive has been moved). I would like to upload those files to CPDL and adjust the links accordingly. Is it enough to upload the files and change the {{website|wimabycomp}} entry into a {{filepath:...}} entry?

TIA for now - I am sure there are more questions to come. Greetings, Ulrich (Lurchi (talk) 23:05, 18 January 2016 (UTC))

Hi again, Ulrich. That's it, replacing external links with local files is that simple! Taking In dedicatione templi (Gregorius Trehou) as an example, currently we have:
*{{CPDLno|12228}} [{{website|wimabycomp}}Trehou.php {{net}}] PDF, MIDI and Capella 5 files available.
That line would be replaced with:
*{{CPDLno|12228}} [{{filepath:yourfilename.pdf}} {{pdf}}] [{{filepath:yourfilename.mid}} {{mid}}] [{{filepath:yourfilename.cap}} Capella 5]
Feel free to ask if you have any more questions! Regards, —Carlos (talk) 01:32, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi, both of you! I have a related Q about Tebe poem (Dmitri Bortniansky); is there an easy way to point the net icon to the right IMSLP page? Richard Mix (talk) 02:22, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi Richard! You seem to have found out by yourself how to do it, that's great. Best, —Carlos (talk) 02:38, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Hey Carlos, shouldn't have you said to Ulrich that his files are yet somewhere on our site (according to Max) so he doesn't even have to upload them! Let's ask Max where they are and I will gladly help Ulrich to restore the file by file direct links instead of drowning users into whole-work composers pages, as discussed on the forums!
Hi Claude, it's not that simple. As Max explained on the forums, the WIMA backup stored on CPDL servers is not directly accessible from this wiki. Currently there isn't a way to link to these files from a works page, unfortunately. But if we decide for converting the backup into a mirror site, as I propose on that same forum thread, then the extra work of re-uploading the files to CPDL can be avoided. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 04:17, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
What is missing for us to "decide for converting the backup into a mirror site"? I'm ready to help Ulrich linking his editions when they'll become available. The problem of obsolete or last/recent versions will be solved by the editor himself. Claude (talk) 16:43, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm all in favor of keeping a local mirror of the old WIMA website. Chuck seems to agree with it, too. Let's talk with Max again at the forums, we'll need his technical skills. —Carlos (talk) 19:16, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Palestrina peccantem

Hello Carlos,

I've just added a page for Palestrina's motet "Peccantem me quotidie," but after it went up, I realised that I had uploaded the wrong PDF (for "O magnum mysterium" rather than "Peccantem"). I removed the PDF from the page, but now I can't for the life of me figure out how to add the right one in. Sorry if I'm simply missing something really obvious on the site... but I would like to know how to upload the correct PDF to the newly-created work page. Alternatively, I could also send you the PDF if you think it's better off in your hands.

Sorry for your trouble, but thank you! Liam 17:23, 22 January 2016‎

Hi, Liam. Thank you for your contributions. Under the 'Sponsor CPDL'/'Donate' part of the left of the page, click on 'Tools'. Click on 'Upload file'. Browse your disk in search of your new PDF file. Go to the work page, type {{filepath:Name of PDF.pdf}} {{pdf}} after the square bracket, on the left of your midi file, then a space. Claude (talk) 22:41, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Excellent, thank you so much! (both for this advice and for connecting my two cries for help). All seems to be properly in order now. - Liam 21:08, 22 January 2016‎

Thank you Liam, for this new edition, and thanks to Claude for explaining the procedure. —Carlos (talk) 14:20, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Admin->Bureaucrat

Thank you for having promoted me from one to the other but, after disconnection/reconnection, the function for moving a page (with historic) doesn't appear either. I wanted to move St Cecilia Mass (Charles Gounod) to Messe Sainte-Cécile, if you agree. Claude (talk) 07:43, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Menu options.png
Hi Claude, it was Max who changed your status. But that shouldn't make any difference; the option to move pages is granted even to ordinary users, after some time. Please check the image to the ~right and let me know which items of the menu aren't available to you. —Carlos (talk) 11:12, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
The inbetween menu shows, in French: Supprimer/Renommer/Protéger. I use often the rename option, but realized suddenly today that perhaps, in English, it could say 'Move' instead of 'Rename'! Sorry. Claude (talk) 16:36, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Mon coeur se recommande à vous

On Mon coeur se recommande (Jean de Castro) it's notated: 'falsely misattributed to Orlando di Lasso'. On Mon coeur se recommande a vous (Orlando di Lasso) the file is not linked. Could you look at the logs to retrieve it? And could someone choose the correct attribution after having seen Mon cœur se recommande à vous (Anonymous) ;-) Claude (talk) 16:44, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Well, James deleted the empty edition attributed to Lasso, as had been requested by you. Now we only have two different authors to choose from. :) —Carlos (talk) 15:54, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
In fact, Jean de Castro's is a different work, unrelated to the anonymous setting, as well as to the polyphonic work by Lasso. —Carlos (talk) 16:18, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Deletion request

Carlos, I've stumbled upon this page Surge propera (Annibale Padovano) but don't know how to mark it as deleted at the request of the editor. Can you assist?Jamesgibb (talk) 11:52, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi James, I usually fill in the delete form as follows:
Reason: Per request
Other/additional reason: Editor request
Regards, —Carlos (talk) 18:23, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Ah, I hadn't realised there was a delete form. I was trying to do it by reference to other pages where there were works deleted at the request of the editor. Where do I find the form, Carlos?Jamesgibb (talk) 22:29, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Oh no, by "form" I didn't mean anything special, just the ordinary confirmation page that appears when you delete a page. Maybe I didn't get your request right: do you want to keep the works page and just mark the edition as withdrawn? —Carlos (talk) 05:21, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Actually, it's not quite clear what he wants, but it's neater just to delete the page, so I've done that, in the way you suggested.Jamesgibb (talk) 08:20, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Composers sorted under [

There are a couple of composers appearing at the end of the composer list, sorted under [. I can't see why, but you might be able to sort it out, Carlos. (Obviously not urgent, since both have only one composition listed.) Jamesgibb (talk) 07:12, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi James, the explanation is simple: when Claude edited these two pages to fix their sort key, he removed the template {{NameSorter}} but forgot to also remove the curly brackets around it. The result, as in this case, is that the sort key "becomes" a template named {{Werlin, Johannes}} that returns a red link to [[Template:Werlin, Johannes]], hence the square bracket. I hope Claude will also read the explanation above. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 14:25, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Where may I see these two errors? On that page: Category:Composers, when I click 13 times on "See the next 200" (13 x 200 = 2600) the last one is Zwyssig. I don't see any [ Claude (talk) 14:50, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Too late, Claude, I've already fixed the sort keys. ;) But you don't need to click 13 times on "next 200" to get to the end of the list, just use the alphabetical index at the top and click on "Z". —Carlos (talk) 15:02, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Ok, the mirror sites still show the error, you can check there: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Composers&from=Z
Sorry, James. When I went directly to Z, I didn't see either, because you had just corrected both pages. Thanks, Carlos. Claude (talk) 15:15, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Claude, did you click on the link I posted above? Notice that it starts with www1. —Carlos (talk) 18:16, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Remove music

Hi Carlos can you help me? I'm the composer Fabio Fresi and I've to totally delete some music of mine from my composer page (and, of course, leave other or add other music), can you help me? What I've to do? Just go in the page and remove it? Thanks a lot!Fabio

fabio fresi

Thanks for your answer Carlos, you give me a great help because I'm not so good with this website. The pieces I've to totally withdrawal are those:

  1. Adoramus te, Christe
  2. Christus factus est
  3. Dic nobis Maria
  4. Dulcis amica Dei
  5. Go crystal tears
  6. In manus tuas
  7. Jesu dulcis memoria
  8. Lux fulgebit
  9. My soul has nought but fire and ice
  10. O salutaris hostia
  11. O vos omnes
  12. Pater noster
  13. Salve Regina
  14. Sancta Mater, istud agas
  15. Terra tremuit
  16. Tre brevi pezzi sacri
  17. Viderunt omnes

So, in shortly, you should leave only :

  1. Alleluia
  2. Ave Maria
  3. Ave Regina caelorum
  4. Dormi, Jesu
  5. Love is not love
  6. Quem pastores laudavere
  7. Stabat Mater
  8. Virgo virginum praeclara

Thanks again for your big help!

Psalms category

Carlos

Might I suggest a new category for "psalms"? Many psalms are used as the basis for hymns, but others have a quite distinctive style. They are not motets either. Examples of composers who used the psalm format include William Lawes, Francisco Valls and John Callcott.

Many thanks

Jonathang (talk) 11:21, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

We have a category for Vesper Psalms; do you have something different in mind? Category talk:Vesper Psalms might still be the logical place for discussion. Richard Mix (talk) 19:11, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Updating Ego sum panis vivus (Pierre de Manchicourt)

Hi Carlos,

I'm confused at the moment by the "Upload a new version of this file" button at File:Ego sum panis vivus (Manchicourt) -2 - 2016-10-20.pdf. The link there and on the work page still shows the earlier version with an incorrect version of mm42-45 on my computer, but Enrique Moschella (who spotted the error) says it's fixed. I even tried uploading the current pdf to File:Ego sum panis vivus (Manchicourt) -2.pdf, but got an error message that the file is identical…Would you mind taking a look? Richard Mix (talk) 23:57, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Richard, it's just a cache effect, either at your browser or at the server side. Usually the new version will start showing up in a couple of hours. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 16:54, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
My first thought too, but still waiting... Richard Mix (talk) 22:35, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Upon comparing the old and new versions, I can see that they differ in the quintus part between bars 42-44. So, rest assured that the newer version is undoubtedly the one now available for download. —Carlos (talk) 15:55, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the untransposed version CPDL #41569 has the correct entrance of that voice in m42, but I still see the wrong version in CPDL #41512. Isn't it true that the four versions in the upload history of File:Ego sum panis vivus (Manchicourt) -2 - 2016-10-20.pdf are identical? Richard Mix (talk) 00:34, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
No, they're not... how can they be identical if you have yourself uploaded (3 times!) the corrected version, hehe. —Carlos (talk) 14:22, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
How indeed. After several days I'm skeptical about it being a cache effect, but I guess the next step is to look at things from a different computer this weekend. Richard Mix (talk) 00:19, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
A quick update: the incorrect version still the linked one (and identical to my other 3 efforts, but different than on my hard drive) and the same warning when renaming. I decided to delete and start over, but got the same "dulicate, try again" warning, and after staring a full minute spotted the inconspicuous button at the bottom of the page labeled "Ignore warning and save file anyway". Whew. Hope no one else has to go through this! At least File:Weel-all -2, letter.pdf didn't duplicate the experience. Richard Mix (talk) 05:52, 3 November 2016 (UT
Well, you should have trusted me when I said that the correct version was available to everyone but you ;-) Proof of this is the fact that the new file you uploaded is an exact duplicate of the one deleted. Best, —Carlos (talk) 17:06, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Uploaded editions

Dear Carlos,

Can you help me out, please? I have made a pig's ear of uploading some editions. One is an edition of an Anonymous "Asperges me". After uploading it I realised that I should have entitled it "Asperges me (Gyffard Partbooks, 2nd setting)" but my attempts to amend this have gone haywire.

Secondly, a weeks ago, or thereabouts, I uploaded three hymn arrangements by Stanford: "O God our help in ages past", "As now the sun's declining rays" and "Thou art the way". The first one uploaded OK, but for some reason the other two went into limbo for administrator approval. I would be very grateful if you could salvage them.

Jason

Hi Jason, Asperges me was renamed as requested.
As for Stanford's three arrangements, you seem to have used the automated AddWork form for the first of them, but then used the old, manual form for the other two. Please always start the process by clicking on the "Add new work" tab on top of every composer's page (or alternatively, use the "Add new edition" tab inside of a works page if there is a page already for the work you are uploading). I have created the pages that were missing for you.
Best, —Carlos (talk) 14:11, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Carlos,

Thanks very much for your help. I am most grateful.

Christi virgo dilectissima

Dear Carlos,

Please help me out. I have been trying to upload an edition of John Sheppard's "Christi virgo dilectissima". For some reason CDPL has insisted on uploading a completely different pdf file ("Non conturbetur cor vestrum"). I have tried everything to change this to the correct file, including deleting the whole page, but CPDL won't co-operate. Could you please clear the decks so that I can try again? This site really does seem more trouble than it's worth. :(

The *really* bizarre thing is that I have not even saved "Non conturbetur" as a pdf file on my hard drive yet!

Jason

Hi Jason. It's really bizarre, because there's no trace of doubt that you have uploaded a version of Non conturbetur on the 24th, but gave the file the name File:Sheppard-ChristiVirgo.pdf. You then uploaded the correct work (Christi virgo dilectissima) on top of it four times in a row, overwriting the wrong file. However, you may have continued to see the first file (Non conturbetur) because it was stored in your browser's cache. As you can see, it was not CPDL's fault this time. :-) I have restored the page that you had blanked and made some minor corrections to it. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 10:31, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Carlos

Once again, thank you very much indeed. I really am indebted to you. Yes, clearing the browser cache has solved the display problem, but I still can't work out how the problem with the wrong file arose in the first place. It must be something I did. Anyway, all's well that ends well.

Jason


John Sheppard

Hi Carlos

When the time comes to clean up the John Sheppard page, I wonder whether something could be done about the categorisation of his works. Hardly any of the compositions listed under the "Motets" heading are actually motets: most of them are either responsories or hymns. Ditto those under "Other Latin Works". I'm guessing that this is a result of CPDL's automated processes. If you feel so inclined, they could be re-ordered as follows:

MASSES: Mass "Cantate"; Credo from Plainsong Mass for a Mean.

RESPONSORIES: Christi virgo dilectissima; Filiae Hierusalem; Gaude, gaude, gaude Maria; Hodie nobis coelorum; In manus tuas (I), (II) and (III); In pace; Justi in perpetuum; Laudem dicite; Reges Tharsis; Verbum caro.

HYMNS: Christe redemptor omnium; Deus tuorum militum (II) (the uploaded setting is actually the second of two); Sacris solemniis; Salvator mundi, Domine.

ANTIPHONS: Libera nos (I) and (II); Media vita.

MOTET: Inclina Domine (I).

OTHER LATIN WORKS: Esurientes.

The list of responsories and hymns that Sheppard wrote is actually fairly extensive, so it would be helpful to have them sorted, if possible.

Add New Work form – Instruments

Hi Carlos, A few minutes ago I used the Add New Work form to create Sharon (James P. Carrell). Since it is an a cappella work, I entered that in the Instruments blank. But when I got to the page, there was an error message across the top, about a missing ) in a Multireplace.php program. The page was created correctly, except Instruments was blank. I tried inserting A cappella in the Instruments template, but it didn't work, I got the same message. I managed to get around it by typing '''Instruments:'''{{Acap}}, which gave the same result, it appears (the page was added to Category:A cappella). By the way, I looked at Template:Instruments and noticed that it was editable by me; it should be protected, right? (I did not edit it). Anyway, I thought you should know that this happened. Best to you — Barry Johnston (talk) 04:52, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Barry, thanks for informing me of this. The problem with template: Instruments seems to be gone, it was just a test by Richard Mix that didn't work out as expected. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 17:50, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Monteverdi Magnificat Secondo edition

Hi Carlos: After a long period of neglect, someone reminded me that my edition of the Monteverdi Magnificat Secondo is missing a verse. Its CPDL number is 26082. I have tried today to upload a complete version--but each time I've tried, the result is still incomplete--on CPDL, that is, but not on my computer. The initial correct upload is

What might I be doing wrong?

Thanks.

I hadn't given it enough time--seems to be OK now. Sorry to bother you! David Cameron (talk) 19:43, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi David, no problem. Yes, it's usually just a browser cache issue. Thanks again for this wonderful edition! :) —Carlos (talk) 18:25, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

apostrophes in Category names?

Hi Carlos, I got an error message after creating St. Peter's Chains and for the moment have temporarily renamed it. Is there a workaround? Richard Mix (talk) 23:03, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Richard, what kind of error did you get? I could open the category normally and saw that there is a work already listed in it. —Carlos (talk) 20:00, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
I wasn't too clear: when I created St. Peter's Chains that page looked OK but Category:Sacred music by by season wouldn't load. I've forgotten the exact message but it said something about consulting a manual. Richard Mix (talk) 22:05, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
If you move back Chains of St. Peter or else put back the Cat:Sacred by season on St. Peter's Chains you may be able to see what I mean. I didn't want to leave it as it was with the whole Sacred music by season shut down. Richard Mix (talk) 01:36, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi Richard, the problem lies inside the DPL code that was in the category header of Sacred music by season. For the moment I moved that code to ChoralWiki:Sacred music by season and will see what can be done to fix it. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 03:46, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Bug in template PostedOn

Hi Carlos. I think your 'localizing' the month changes to PostedOn have resulted in an error. Today (October 26th), PostedOn lists my score A Hymn for St Cecilia (Charles H. Giffen), but the score was posted on September 26th, not October 26th. The problem is that I also posted editions for the instrumental parts on October 1st, and that seems to have fooled the template PostedOn, which looks at the posting day (26) for one edition and the month (10) for another edition and decides that a score was posted on 10-26. I only noticed this because today my work is listed at the beginning of the works posted for today (2018-10-26), since it is first alphabetically. Here is the result of {{PostedOn|2018-10-26}} (which will probably only be valid for today (or perhaps until the end of the month?).

I'm hesitant to revert your changes, since I'm busy enough today that I won't have time to test any reversion. Could you check into the problem? Thanks. See you Sunday for the Board meeting!! -- Chucktalk Giffen 15:47, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Chuck. You're right, the template tests for the day and the month separately, as far as I can remember. That could potentially give the results you cite, in that very specific situation. There's certainly room for improvement! I'll have a look at it as soon as I can, but feel free to make any corrections if you already envision a solution for it. Regards, —Carlos (talk) 17:23, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi again. I've implemented a new system that seems to be working correctly. Thanks for spotting the error! —Carlos (talk) 14:49, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Statistics of downloads of contributed works

Dear Carlos,

I was wondering if it were possible for me to see some statistics (downloads etc) of my contributions? I get the occasional question from a user who took the effort to find my contact, but that doesn't give much information.

Grateful for your advice.

Hi Wim, unfortunately we don't have that feature on CPDL, sorry! —Carlos (talk) 16:27, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
