This is a different setting than the one from Musae Sioniae V; however, this does raise an important issue: what is the best way to catalogue Praetorius's works when he made so many arrangements of the same melodies over and over? Perhaps it would be best to sort them by melody. Either that, or by which volume of his works each is published in. (I have made indexes for Musae Sioniae I, II, III, and IV and Musarum Sioniarum, but I no longer have access to other volumes...) What do others think? Ross Jallo 09:17, 22 September 2011 (CDT)

As long as there are no duplicates in a single volume, I like your second plan: this page could move to Puer natus in Bethlehem - Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem (Musae Sionae VI) (Michael Praetorius). Are we possibly overlooking a standard catalog, though? Richard Mix 06:36, 17 December 2011 (CST)

From Talk:Puer natus in Bethlehem / Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem (Michael Praetorius)

Would it be possible to make a second version for the recently published 'Puer Natus' for 6 voices, using a common G-key, instead of a tenor G(8)-key for the alto part ?

I leave in France, and I am conductor of a 20 amateur singers choir. As you may know, male singers in France are very rare .... and female alto singers are not used to read music printed with G(8)key

I would be happy to make another version if you will use it! Are there any other changes you would like? (For example, I could change the text underlay so that Latin verses 6-10 are underneath, instead of the German text. Or perhaps you would prefer a French translation?)

Sorry for late answer ... Indeed, writing second part verse (6-10) could also be a good idea. But main request is to get a score with a G key for Alt part. Thanks in advance for your time, Michel. (01/12/11)

Many thanks, Ross. I'll tell you the result I will get with my choir (planned for June 2012) Michel Lebugle 23:15, 17 December 2011 (CET)
