My sweetest Lesbia - Thomas Campian and Philip Rosseter

Can anybody help me (in a bit of a rush, trying to meet a deadline!) with a score including the lyric? I have a MIDI file which I hope will convert without too much trouble to give me the dots, but I need to match the words to the dots accurately (and since this dates from the golden age of English ...

Perhaps I am being a little melodramatic here, but the action of UE reminds me of nothing so much as the BURNING OF THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA.

Without wishing to muddy the waters, perhaps some arrangement could be established whereby UE can sell their editions as an affiliate to IMSLP?

If it is possible to impose a block preventing downloading of specific scores to a given continent, surely this would be enough copyright protection to satisfy the law ? (OK it will require a lot more work by site administration, but it would allow IMSLP to continue to operate). In the meantime, is ...

In the light of recent developments I would like to reaffirm my support for the IMSLP and offer my own transcriptions in abc notation to anybody who wishes to download them from my personal blog . Until a new IMSLP can be organized and established, would it be helpful for members to post lists of si...

I only just received the news. I am devastated.

I will certainly be thinking twice before patronising UE again.

Choral Public Domain Library

Has anybody else noticed problems logging into the CPDL over the last few days? I thought my bookmarks might be out of date so tried googling for it, but even the searched-up links failed to load. :cry:

Vintage recordings as MP3s

In the past I have relied heavily on the Karadar / CoCoA site as a source of vintage recordings in MP3 format. However, towards the end of 2005, CoCoA announced a major redesign, and launched a redesign forum to seek the opinions of site users. Since then it has been almost impossible to contact the...

When I checked...

earlier this year, I was advised that the Planets Suite copyright was renewed (not sure what that means in real terms) and is held by the Holst estate. (The trustees of Imogen's estate, I think).

My thinking is that if I start a page for a composer whose works are copyrighted, to add a note giving an approximate date when they "should" enter the public domain.

I am still agonizing over the question of whether to release any of my late father's works, and if so, which ones.

Just out of reach

In the course of things completely unrelated to contributing to IMSLP it occurred to me that there are many composers whose work will not enter the public domain in my lifetime, but I would like to think that the IMSLP will endure, and continue to be an important PD resource. With that in mind, woul...

Search ranking

Has the IMSLP been submitted to any of the big search engines? or is it just waiting for the spiders to find it?

Karadar and CoCoA

Horndude is right. When I first discovered the IMSLP somebody had already proposed such a project in connection with the Karadar/CoCoA library. My opinion is that Karadar offers a good range of MIDI files which are helpful for quick reference perhaps to identify a piece of music if I am uncertain, a...
