Talk:The Mean Mass (John Taverner)

Dear Edward,

I see that you once upon a time had this Taverner mass up on CPDL; having done a little research around other discussion topics, I see that you've taken a lot of scores down due to copyright infingement on the continent - what a great shame, but I fully understand your doings.

I'm writing to request a copy of this Taverner mass, or even in fact see whether you'd be interested in reposting the work. I am a teacher of Pre-U (the new A Level if you're unfamiliar) music and the Byrd 4 part mass is on the syllabus as the set work amongst the larger topic English Church Music, 1530 - 1610. As I'm sure you'll know, the influence of Taverner's Mean Mass upon the Byrd 4 part is rather large; for such an unknown work, it's tricky to get hold of a score and hence my request of it from you. If you're able to consider sending the work to me, that would be very kind indeed.

Hope to hear from you soon.
