Hi - this is my first time adding a comment so apologies if I'm messing anything up! I downloaded your pdf of "The Holy City" recently, which is great but is missing a page! Its Page 3 of the actual score... I've found another copy elsewhere but I particularly liked this one because its for solo voice. So, just letting you know.
Hello. Please remember to put arrangements and transcriptions on the page for the original work, which in this case is The Lost Chord (Sullivan, Arthur). I've moved it accordingly. Also, Mystic Beauty - veil dance (Finck, Herman) has been moved to Mystic Beauty (Finck, Herman), following our page title rules, which you might like to familiarise yourself with. Thanks — P.davydov 11:23, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
.... Cannot be uploaded to the main server (in Canada) as he is still protected there (died less than 50 years ago). The Slumber Song therefore has been deleted. You will have to either wait until 2014 or ask one of the admins familiar with uploading to the USA server to put it there. Sorry, Carolus 02:28, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
Hello again. Please do not attempt to add or change any "|Tags=" to work pages, as there is a dedicated team responsible for making sure they are applied correctly. The change you made on this page caused an error, which we had to fix. Thank you — P.davydov 10:02, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
It is very important that you provide dates for all contributors to any item posted. For example, the light opera by Caryll and Monckton - The Torreador - has some lyrics written by Percy Greenbank, who lived until 1968. This means that the score you posted, while free in the USA (which is entirely dependent upon publication date for determining the copyright term for anything published before 1978), it is still under copyright in Canada (where the main server is hosted) because the last surviving contributor died less than 50 years ago. That's why it had to be deleted. I left the page for the opera up, in case you wish to ask Schissel, Daphnis or one of the other admins who uploads things to the USA server place it there.

..Same deal as with Squire above. Don't upload anything by a composer who died after 1961. You can upload Percy Grainger (d.1961) now, for example, since all his work enters the Canadian public domain on January 1st. Carolus 03:54, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
many thanks Carolus! Sorry, I've slipped up on Rosenbloom! What is the situation for example regarding 1920s musicals where the lyricist is, say, Irving Caesar who died in the 1990s so long as you only upload a piano-solo selection i.e. without any of Caesar's contributions at all? regards, Adam
Hello Adam. Please do not put the same file on two different pages, as you've done recently with some of the Oury transcriptions. They belong only on the page for the work that's being arranged, unless these are it is a free-form fantasia or paraphrase on themes from an earlier work, which qualifies as a new works under the arranger's name.
Oury's transcription The Power of Love is an arrangement of a vocal work "sung by Miss Louisa Pyne", which doesn't seem to fit with the orchestral score from the ballet Le Diable amoureux by Napoléon Henri Reber, so I've left it on its own page until the source can be identified with certainty — P.davydov 17:31, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Hi Carolus, many thanks for this info on where to properly place arrangements in IMSLP! I have a very large collection and I'm gradually working through updating my catalogue and each day add something or other to a pile for scanning and sharing via IMSLP. Personally I've discovered many pieces in IMSLP I'd previously hunted for years without success so it's a small way of giving something back. This evening I've uploaded a concert polonaise by Henry Geehl - who died over 50 years ago - however the system doesn't think so ....have I done something wrong here? many thanks, Adam
I saw you uploaded section from operetta. If you have other sections, can you upload them, I'm desperate to find them. Thanks in advance.
