Dear Martin, When you post something on IMSLP, it meets the legal definition of "published" in a large number of countries - including Canada and the USA. The Duo for two Gallichons is no longer "unpublished" therefore. I gather from your description that you've transcribed the original tablature into the two parts posted, so that it is your own manuscript posted here instead of the composer's. It would probably be best for us to treat this as a new typeset as far as using the Creative Commons License to claim proper Attribution. Thanks, Carolus 22:45, 7 August 2008 (EDT) (IMSLP Chief of Copyright Police)

Also, this is not a new composition and thus should be classified under "typesets" and not "new composition"; just a note for future cases. It might also be a good idea to use proper spacing and punctuation in the title (e.g. "Gallichon Duo No.2 (Schiffelholz, Johann Paul)"). You can change the title by using the "move" tab at the top of the page. Thanks! --Feldmahler 11:33, 10 August 2008 (EDT)


Gabrieli's Canzonas septimi toni octo vocum

Hi Martin,

thanks for these new typesets, but I wanted to ask as a point of clarification: there are two seventh tone canzonas for eight voices in Gabrieli’s 1597 set; however as you’d be aware, these are the second and third items in the publication, after the first tone canzona à 8. So is your “2nd of 1597” referring to the absolute order of the publication (the first of these two, following directly the first tone canzona) – or that of the two seventh tone canzonas à 8, this one comes second (= third in the set)?

Also, are you aware of Richard Charteris’ thematic catalogue? I don’t have ready access to a copy without visiting the University library, but the 1597 canzonas occupy C 170 through to C 185. (The one you’ve typeset is either C 171 or C 172.) If you’re unable to answer, I can make a trip to check this. Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 10:08, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Martin,
thanks for the e-mail. Yes, I agree we should put in the Charteris numbers; I don’t recall seeing where the earlier discussion took place, but had I been aware of it I would have advocated this. I’ll move the pages once I’m satisfied I have the right catalogue information, since I don’t have a complete listing of which works are which. If you could add new pages including them, that would be great.
As for the other thing you mentioned about the Greaves consort songs, I’ll try to have a look at these sometime today. Cheers Philip Legge @ © talk 22:59, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Creative Commons Licenses

Dear Martin,

We've been in some discussions with the performing rights societies here in the USA. One of the organizations has taken the position that the Creative Commons Licenses - even the more restrictive ones (which you are always careful to use) do not allow them to collect on live or broadcast performances. I have not determined PRS's position yet, but wanted to know if you are a) affiliated with PRS; and b) wished to be paid royalties on any live and broadcast (including internet broadcasts) of your original works. You can respond either here or over at my talk page as you wish. Thanks, Carolus 19:53, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

I am not a member of the PRS. At the moment I am not concerned about the licensing, though I did expect some contact from the PRS as more works are performed. I think considering the sums of money concerned, (I have been receiving tiny amounts of money from publishers for years), I am quite happy to see things continue with the creative commons licenses. MartinY 07:19, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

OK, we'll leave as is for now. As we continue to add more features and automation, we hope to be able to offer composers a feature whereby performances of their works can be reported directly to an organization like PRS from this site. Trying to figure our all of the different agencies involved is complicated just on its own. Carolus 00:17, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Loeillet of Ghent, Walsh and Hare Print

I'm trying to tag this, and Grove Music doesn't show any publications for 2 recorders, so I'm not sure what the original was. I also can't find a reference to Walsh and Hare. Can you tell me a little more about what your source for this was? Thanks, Steltz 07:53, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for this. It sounds like I should make the 2-rec version an arrangement and tag as solo sonatas. Does that sound right? Steltz 08:38, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
I won't tag this for now, just so there's no real rush. The only Loeillet catalog I know of is Brian Priestman's, but that is for the London Loeillet, not this one.

Synthesized audio

Hi Martin. It is perfectly OK for you to upload computer-generated audio for your own compositions, but I should let you know that according to IMSLP's policy, it is almost never acceptable for computer-synthesized recordings to be uploaded of works you didn't write yourself. Therefore, I'm afraid the audio file you uploaded to 3 Suites for Solo Cello, Op.131c (Reger, Max) a while ago had to be removed. Sorry, KGill talk email 16:43, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Sacro-profanus concentus musicus (Schmelzer, Johann Heinrich)

Hello Martin. Our arrangement headers are read automatically, so we have to be careful to have the right punctuation and syntax, which is the reason I've just altered your last change to read "For 1 to 4 recorders and guitar". It should now show up in the appropriate categories. Hope that's OK — P.davydov 18:57, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Susato chansons

Hi Martin

Thanks for uploading the manuscript version of some of Susato's 3-part chansons. I have just re-transcribed this onto computer and will upload a typeset version when I have fully checked it.

I don't have a copy of the Danserye, but I could possibly borrow it from a friend. I met up with a couple of recorder-playing friends today and got them to play through Mille Regretz and the other chansons. They work quite well on recorder. Haven't tried them on viols yet. Chhers.

Vivaldi Cello Sonatas

Dear Martin, I moved all these back to their original title format. However, take note that they now sort according to RV number (which I agree is a very desirable feature). If you look at the very bottom of the page, you can see the trick used to do it. Use this method in the future, please. Thanks, Carolus 04:35, 16 December 2011 (UTC) Here is the little piece of code you should copy and paste at the very bottom of the work pages for any subsequent Vivaldi Cello sonatas: [[Category:Vivaldi, Antonio|Cello Sonata, RV XX]]. This way they will sort by RV number instead of key. BTW, your works are being sold on Ebay by various sellers. Thanks to Ebay's recent change in reporting policy, they no longer respond to our requests. Only requests - in writing (not e-mail) - from the copyright owner are addressed.

In Nomines a 4, Op.30 (Grayson, Martin)

Hi Martin. I just noticed that on this page, you accidentally uploaded two copies of the tenor viol part to No.2 (so the bass part is missing). Would it be possible to add the bass viol as well? Thanks, KGill talk email 16:04, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
