Thanks a lot for these fantastic scans! By the way, we have a template ("{{FE}}") for first editions; please put it in the "editor" field. Thanks again-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 19:47, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Hello Tom! Could you help me with scores access in The Ohio State University you have posted (Pachelbel's Klavierwerke in Denkmaler)? How to get it (and another books) from this library?

Thanks a lot Michel

Hi Michel, I've no idea, I'm afraid. A friend of mine sent me a link to that (apparently found via the Sibley Music Library), as I had been looking for Pachelbel's Harpsichord Suites for a while. Sorry I can't help more... --Irishmaestro 22:54, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Replacing files

Hi Tom! You actually did manage to replace the old file - due to caching, it will take a couple days for the new file to load. Annoying, I know, but there's little we can do about it. Cheers, KGill talk email 22:31, 24 September 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for all of them!! Andrewt 20:00, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Couperin - Lecon de tenebre

Couperin Lecon de tenebre.

Good day, My name is Ana-Maria, I am a flutist.

I am very sorry to disturb you. I would like to ask, if it's possible, if you are so kind to reload Couperin- Lecon de tenebre. A firend of mine who is a singer needs it for a concert of hers. We tried to download it from this site, but it seems there is an error and we can not open it. Or you prefer to send it by e-mail?

Thank you very much!




Hi dear Irishmaestro, Thank you for the harpsichord pieces divided into 4 books, it was a really good thing to do. I just renamed the 4 for much visual clarity, "Pieces for harpsichord, Book 1", "....Book 2", ".... 3", "..... 4", as is usually done. Chrysander/Brahms edition may remain unchanged into: "Pièces de clavecin", or "Pièces of clavecin, complete" no need to split I think. (but I can do that) . I'll be very happy now hear your imslp recorded version of all these pieces on all these pages :) --Squin 14:19, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Your new Rameau edition


Just thought you might prefer to use the non-commercial or another version of the CC license in light of the hordes of Ebay guys who rip files from this site and re-sell them. At least if something is tagged as a cc-by-nc or stronger, you can complain to Ebay if you find someone selling the edition. Great addition - Thanks, Carolus 23:41, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Good idea! I'll see if I can change that now! --Irishmaestro 23:42, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Editor’s hat

As you now have a few scores on IMSLP, we should probably be arranging you with a proper contributor’s page (that is, one which will appear in the list of Editors in the left-hand column, alongside all manner of other editorial folk). Remind me, since I’m sometimes a bit dense with these, should the Ó be attached to your surname or not? i.e. this would result in either Category:Ó Drisceoil, Tom or Category:Drisceoil, Tom Ó accordingly (and red links will remain until one or the other is created).

Cheers, Philip @ © talk 15:42, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi Philip, it's Ó Drisceoil, Tom. =] --Irishmaestro 21:12, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Thought so, but didn’t want to create the wrong category and look like a right dill. ;-) PML

Haha, don't worry. Irish surnames are confusing. =P --Irishmaestro 21:36, 8 April 2011 (UTC)


Hi Irishmaestro. Just to let you know that he's been moved to Agincour, François d' in accordance with IMSLP's naming guidelines. Cheers, KGill talk email 00:57, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for finding and uploading this! I've been looking for this for quite some time! SteveBNA 12:58, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
No problem! I was delighted to find it myself, was meaning to have a look. --Irishmaestro 13:04, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


His work pages here are, to put it mildly, a confusing mess. I plan to do some work in cleaning it up this summer (Hercules probably had it easy in the Augean stables - did Mr. H. write one about that?), so your suggestions and ideas would naturally be greatly appreciated. Carolus 03:50, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Carolus. I would say that publications issued during Handel's lifetime should probably be kept together. Besides, the first set of 6 Concerti Grossi, for instance, are better known as Op.3 than as HWV 312-317! That would definitely go for the Eight Great Suites too, since Handel probably assembled these together himself in 1720. Also, splitting up facsimiles isn't a great idea IMO. As for works transmitted in manuscript only, I'm not sure how to go about these. In the case of the Italian Cantatas, for example, you could split them up into their constituent works (thereby making Handel's page an awful lot longer!) or assemble them all into a collective page of their own. The operas and oratorios obviously all need their own pages.
The page definitely needs cleaning up, though. The 'Klavierstucke' title isn't great because of the word's modern association with the piano (even though Handel would have understood it to mean 'Keyboard'). The Germans would likely have played them on the harpsichord or clavichord, and the English and French might have played them on the harpsichord or on the spinet... What you call the pages you create for the groups then is a matter of taste, I suppose. Do you call the 1720 set the 'Eight Great Suites' or Handel's original title of 'Suites de Pieces pour le Clavecin, Premier Volume' (which might confuse people). Or do we keep all the harpsichord music together? That would take care of all these random keyboard works with their own pages, such as the no less than 11 harpsichord suites I can find on the page... Of course, you could put those into Miscellaneous Keyboard Works or something?
Could we maybe model the IMSLP groupings on those of the New Handel Edition? Once the page has been sorted out, we can make sure that every work in the Handel Page is linked to in the Handel catalogue... Hope these ideas are of some help! --Irishmaestro 13:33, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

I was thinking very much along these same lines. I completely agree about keeping the publications issued in Handel's lifetime together. I was wondering if it might also be beneficial to have both a collection page (as we do for Vivaldi's Op.8, for example) and pages for the individual works contained therein - limiting the collection pages to complete volumes with maybe arrangements of the whole collection by one person (the arrangements of individual items going on the separate work pages. Sorry about the tardiness of my response. It's been way too busy! Carolus 02:20, 20 July 2011 (UTC) Great start! Thanks, Carolus 03:16, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Missarum - Liber Decimus (Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da)

Hi Irishmaestro. Unfortunately, the file you uploaded to this page had to be deleted, because it had the trademarked Google logo on every page. If you wish to submit it, you will have to find some way of removing them first (I would recommend asking on the forums about it if necessary). Thanks, KGill talk email 20:42, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
