Fauré, Songs or Mélodies, op.7

Postby steltz » Wed Dec 17, 2014 8:21 am

We have had this page for several years, under "Songs". They apparently weren't published together initially, and individually there is no subtitle that indicates genre category. However, the oldest collections I find them in are the Hamelle "20 Mélodies" collections. The Wikipedia article refers to them as "Mélodies", though Wikipedia is not always reliably scholarly.

It looks to me like this page should be re-named. Other opinions?

Melodies is certainly common, and I doubt anyone would be confused. It might be a good idea to check Worldcat and VIAF to see what libraries are using for this opus.
