Navigation etc.

Clearly some of these works have now been performed and recorded in their organ version.

Ok. Here. When moving a page from "Finale of Op.161" to the complete work Op.161 - and a workpage should almost always be of -all- of Op.161; if all you have to upload is the finale, then mark it "6. Finale" instead of Complete Score, but title the Workpage "Requiem", not "Final de Requiem" - the workpage is about the work, not the fragment you've uploaded- but when moving finale to "Requiem... Op.161" please make all other needed changes too, or - some people will be the heck out confused of.
