User talk:Feduol

Hello Feduol, You're welcome - and thanks for the nice contribution! Question: Do you happen to know if this is the 1503 or 1504 reissue of Canti A? According to the article at Wikipedia, the original 1501 printing only survives in fragmentary form. Also, when putting in file descriptions, there's no need to repeat the title, since the file name is separate from the file description. I'll go ahead and merge these into a single stack when I tag them for copyright status. Best Wishes, Carolus 18:37, 21 June 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

A second thanks for this work, although the resolution is quite, quite low. I've longed to see this in digital form for study purposes, but I can scarcely read it at any level of zoom. If re-scanning it is out of the question, perhaps some software can help? Daphnis 20:25, 21 June 2009 (EDT)


Scanned by

Hi Feduol, I noticed that in your contributions you don't give reference to the scanner usually. Normally, when we upload things here which have been made public on other websites before, as, e.g., SLUB Dresden, TU Darmstadt, Gallica etc. we give reference to them in this field. Actually, we now even have templates for most of these sites, so it's rather easy to get the link to them (maybe a look, e.g., at a Graupner cantata can help and calrify things even further). :) --BoccaccioTalk Email 13:22, 20 April 2011 (UTC)


Hi Feduol. Just to let you know he's been moved to Guillemant, Benoît in accordance with IMSLP's naming guidelines. Cheers, KGill talk email 12:19, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Villa-Lobos - Valsa da dor

Hi Feduol! Unfortunately, your upload of this work had to be deleted, because it was first published in 1972 - less than 50 years ago and less than 50 years after the composer's death - and is therefore under copyright in Canada (not to mention most of the rest of the world). Sorry, KGill talk email 23:49, 7 May 2011 (UTC)


Dear Feduol! You have uploaded the Motets by Campra, but these scores exist already in the category "Petits Motets". Best wishes Bassani


Dear Fedoul,

I'd like to know if you have an Odecathon version printable for studying. I tried to print the one you published but it's almost unreadable. Thank you very much!

Dear Akurero, I have a very good facsimile printable version of Odhecaton, but it is yet on paper. It is my personal upcoming project to scan the entire book. Can you tell me which folio(s) you need so I can send you what you want as soon as possible? Best Wishes, --Feduol 10:26, 5 June 2011 (UTC)


Please do not add tags to work pages. If you're interested in joining the categorization project (the tags look good, at least!), say so here, or contact the project leader, but until you officially join, leave the task to those designated as librarians. Thanks!-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:28, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Perlnerd, he asked me to join a few months ago (see here), though things were never quite made clear to me as to when he was formally ready :-) Anyway, since his tagging has been going fine, I guess it should be OK to belatedly add his name to the list of members. Cheers, KGill talk email 23:34, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

I see—my bad. The userboxes have led me into a false sense of security over who is part of what :P-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:40, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Dears Perlnerd and KGill, I was interested to joining the categorization project, as I asked you, KGill, and I read everything about tagging. But I did not give a final answer about my participation because I do not have so many time to do it frequently and I was afraid to become a inactive member. I am looking now for categorization project names and saw I am there, thank you very much. I will try to do my best. Regards! =) -- Feduol 23:52, 4 August 2011 (UTC)


Dear Feduol: Thanks for the Solano contributions. I've changed "Exame instructive" though and removed the "methods" tag, which is for instrumental or vocal technique. If this book does involve an instrument (or the art of singing), then please let me know for what, and I will add the instrument or "v". Next, I need to ask about Nova instrucçao, Nova arte, and Nova tratado -- is there an instrument involved in them or is it purely thoery? Steltz 05:40, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Dear Steltz, you are totally correct in your explanation. Yes, the Solano's book that I uploaded are purely about music thoery, and I removed their methods tags. I am sorry because I thought this tag correspond to any work that has a progressive lessons to instruct a learner, and I did not realize that it is only for instruments or voice. I will be correcting this tagging for the others music theory books I have been uploaded. Best wishes =) Feduol 15:45, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Telemann scans

Hello Feduol, Your recent uploads of the Telemann Trio Sonata are very high quality, but also huge (300 dpi color - 2 mb per page). Converted to 600 dpi monochrome they come in at 120 kb per page. If you agree, I would think the best would be if I just replace the files instead of cluttering the workpage with 2 sets of scans. Please let me know! --Kalliwoda 16:49, 29 May 2012 (EDT)

Hi Kalliwoda! Yes, of course, you can replace the files, feel free to do everything to make the files better without asking me. Thank you very much for your attention and contribution. Cheers! --Feduol 11:43, 30 May 2012 (UCT)

Copyright infringement

Dear Mr Oliveira,

It has come to our notice that you have published images of a number of manuscripts photographed by DIAMM and several of our partner libraries on IMSLP. I appreciate that you probably felt this was providing a service to your fellow researchers and musicians, but in fact you may have single-handedly damaged or even destroyed the future of manuscript image delivery online.

Not only is this a breach of the copyright licence that you agreed to when you created your DIAMM account, this is also a very serious breach of trust that will affect every member of the academic community.

It has taken decades to build relationships with libraries and archives and to persuade them to digitize their materials, often at enormous cost. The cost to DIAMM alone to digitize the manuscripts we have photographed is well over a million GBP, yet we make them available to users without charge, a service that costs us a significant amount of money every year, all provided by government and individual grants. DIAMM in particular has only been able to survive and grow because of the trust that depositors place in us in allowing us to deliver images of their manuscripts. Your actions have seriously jeopardised the future of DIAMM, since depositors will remove their images if we cannot ensure that users respect the rights of the document owners. In many cases it has taken years (in one case over 7 years) of careful negotiation to persuade libraries to allow us to digitize their documents and put them online. Outside DIAMM many libraries did not put their own images online, and some still do not, because they are concerned about rights infringement of this sort - it seems with good justification. Only recently are libraries beginning to put their manuscripts online, and this may stop if users like you abuse that trust.

Already two libraries have asked us to withdraw their images from online use; carefully negotiated licences with Spanish libraries are likely to be withdrawn, and the images that are lost will not appear anywhere else on the web since the owners believe that the user community cannot be trusted not to redistribute them without permission. We are in the process of negotiating the rights to put over 25,000 new images online, and these negotiations have now stopped until this matter can be resolved: the manuscripts may not be digitized at all, and if they are they may never appear online anywhere. Your actions may therefore mean that many manuscripts that would otherwise be made available to our community will never appear in a public space.

It is deeply upsetting that the thoughtless actions of a single individual should have such far-reaching and damaging consequences for the global research community.

Web publication is governed by the same publication copyright as print publication: the only thing that you may reproduce from a web page without infringing copyright is the URL of the page.

On behalf of the Directors of DIAMM, The British Library, Eton College, Lambeth Palace Library and Jena University Library, I am writing to ask you to remove your uploads from IMSLP immediately before further damage is done to the trust that has been placed in us by research libraries worldwide, and to the future of musicological research. I would suggest also that you examine all of your uploads, as if they were created by copying images from other websites without the permission of the owner, they will also be in breach of copyright.

Dr Julia Craig-McFeely DIAMM Research Fellow, Faculty of Music University of Oxford Director and Project Manager Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music

Open discussion regarding DIAMM and IMSLP

I understand there is a significant amount of discussion in places where I (and most musicians), ironically, do not have access. Therefore, I've taken the liberty of creating an IMSLP forum thread open to all. I've also posted a few preliminary remarks to start the discussion. --Feldmahler 00:09, 2 February 2014 (EST)
