title spelling, and why category Unknown?
1. Why does this appear listed in Category:Unknown? A musicologist friend is checking to see if she can resolve some entries listed in the category. Some other entries in Category Unknown actually have "Unknown" listed as a value in some field, I don't see an indication here. Did they mean to put Category Anonymous on the bottom instead of Category Unknown?
- Hi Vaarky,
- 1) this "Unknown" stands for the musical era (Classical music? Baroque music? etc.)
- 2) and 3) I read that Quechua spelling can vary wildly depending on the country and time it was written. The inner title was written in the traditional way, following Spanish rules, while page title seems to follow the new spelling reform of 1975. Later on I'll research a bit more on this subject.

- Tx. Even if the score page doesn't need to be consistent with the title on the actual edition, should n't we add the alternate spelling(s) to the score page? --Vaarky 01:18, 29 July 2008 (PDT)
- Hi Chuck, that's a good point. It's not just the space between words, the spelling reform also replaced C by Q/K. But doing a google search I saw that the old (original Spanish-style) spelling is by far the most common on the net, so I'll move the page back to its original title, Hanacpachap cussicuinin, ok? —Carlos 02:48, 13 August 2008 (PDT)
