John Bennett, Hunting -- A Hunts Up
Dear Daniel: Grove Music mentions Bennett's Ten Voluntaries for the Organ or Harpsichord, and then says "[i]t is curious that, apart from three hymn tunes contributed to A Collection of Melodies for the Psalms of David, according to the Version of Christopher Smart (London, 1765), he appears to have published nothing else." Could I ask what your source for this typeset was? It could be that Grove is not entirely correct and that something else was published, but the Hunting -- A Hunts Up, probably wouldn't be one of the three hymns.

Well, that is interesting! My source is actually Christian Mondrup (WIMA)! I first started contributing to WIMA in 2006, and this was the first piece I submitted to Christian. His original was dificult for me to use so I modified his version to see if my layout was an acceptable alternative. He then suggested further changes and these were incorporated too. The final version is what I sent to you. Christian's original version says, "A Briefe Discourse, 1614, no. 1". This refers to 'Thomas Ravencrofts, "A Briefe Discourse"'. According to the WIMA site for this, http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer/Ravenscroft.php. The scan of the original can be found at http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/ravenscroft/brief/all.pdf. This clearly states that John Bennet was a contributor of several songs in its index, page 13 of the facsimile. Thank you for making me look this up! DanielHarmer 15:08, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
HAAA -- mystery solved! There is a John Bennet (one T only) who was a contributor to Ravenscroft! I have moved the page accordingly. Steltz 22:17, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
- In fact, all of Daniel’s contributions are the one T Bennet (16th Century), not the two T Bennett (18th Century) nor the one N, one T Benet (15th Century). Bennet was a composer chiefly of madrigals, so in addition to moving the other page I’ve corrected the tag: it’s a madrigal, not a hymn. Cheers Philip @ © talk 02:55, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
These works are the originals. The word "arranger" is really not correct. I received the scores from Sylvia for the purpose of putting them onto WIMA. The formatting was not up to WIMA standards and she asked me to clean them and submit them to WIMA for her. That is all I did. They are her original works. At some point Michel Rondeau will submit more of her works from WIMA. Michel Rondeau has not only cleaned up her originals, he has also often arranged the works for brass instruments. I selected the copyright so that Sylvia would maintain control of her works. DanielHarmer 14:52, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
- Now fixed to list you as "editor" not arranger. Carolus 02:12, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
On the MIDI files, please also list yourself as publisher, unless it's one of a piece by an obviously copyrighted composer like Rzewski, in which case it should have the composer's name in the field. Thanks, Carolus 02:14, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
Hassler, Hans Leo: Angelus ad pastores (Cantiones Sacrae #6).
I submitted a recorder arrangement of this on Sept. 3, 2011, however, it is not on the Hassler page because I mistakenly added it on the Handl, Jacobus page in error. Please move it for me. Sorry about this! I will submit the MIDI file when it has been moved to the right place!
- No problem. Your arrangement files can be moved pretty easily. I'll take care of it as soon as I finish the present round of copyright tagging. Carolus 01:07, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
This move has been made. There is a surplus page on the Hassler, Hans Leo page now as the work "Angelus ad pastores" is No. 6 of "Cantiones Sacrae". DanielHarmer 23:23, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
