You should be able to easily change these things yourself, through use of the 'edit' tab appearing at the top of the page when you're logged in.

I've done it now, but the Habershon link shows up in red because we have no page for her.`

Who composed the music? If Ada Ruth Habershon was the composer of the music, the work Will the Circle Be Unbroken? should be attributed to her. However, if she only wrote the words and Charles Hutchinson Gabriel composed the music it would indeed be vice-versa (which appears to be the case). Since this is a site devoted to musical works, the principal author is always going to be the composer, if known. Looks like it is now corrected. Nothing to worry about the red-link. When someone adds another piece or two with text by Habershon, no doubt a page will be created for her and the red-link will appear blue like that of Gabriel.

Thanks all. I was ignorant of the edit tab as a new user and appreciate the direction. Many thanks to steltz for making the edit; all appears well now. With appreciation, -J.R-W
