Welcome to CPDL, Corinne. I've taken the liberty of establishing redirects from your login page to your full-name user page User:Corinne Cooze and from the full-name user talk page to this login-id user talk page, to facilitate navigation. We are happy to have you become a contributor here. Also, it's nice to meet a TLM enthusiast (I'm active at the CMAA forums at MusicaSacra.org). If you need any help or have questions feel free to ask me or any of the other Admins.
- That's great, Corinne! Glad you do, so feel free to chime in anytime, there or here! – Chucktalk Giffen♫ 15:45, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Corinne, thanks for all the new editions you are adding the site. One small point. If you are adding an English translation of (say) Latin, it's helpful if you use Text|Latin and Translation|English, rather than Text|English. That helps to keep things sorted properly on the site.

- Yes, I realized this mistake during a later upload and never got around to finding which pieces I had accidentally used "text" instead of "translation." I've been trying to remember this lately, though. (CCooze10 (talk) 19:27, 18 February 2016 (UTC))
Don't worry about it. I'm currently doing a trawl through the English texts, so any of yours will be obvious. I had similar sorts of problems when I started uploading stuff. THe most important thing is to keep adding works to the site.Jamesgibb (talk) 00:58, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
Looking forward to more beautiful Isaac editions! I hope you'll fix any mistakes I might have made so far in the publication page. After noticing I'd slipped on some page names in the form Communion: Amen dico vobis, I disambiguated Ad the levavi thus Ad te levavi (introit) (Heinrich Isaac), although I can't make up my mind about lower/upper case i/I. Any preference? All the best, Richard Mix (talk) 23:04, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
Tu es Petrus
Oops, I missed the book 3 Tu es Petrus and mistakenly thought we only needed to distinguish the Alleluia: Tu es Petrus when moving a page to Tu es Petrus (Communion) (Heinrich Isaac). When one of us has time and the books at hand Choralis Constantinus (Heinrich Isaac) still needs filling out. Maybe disambiguation by date would work for Tu es Petrus, as for Salve Regina (Orlando di Lasso). As you point out, it's a question whether to have a different naming convention for Alleluia verses. There's a case that "Alleluia" is part of the incipit, even though Solesmes books index just the verse (there's one example indexed under "Alleluia. Haec dies" at gregobase). CPDL has a preponderance of pages using the colon. Ease of searching for CPDL users is probably the most important consideration, so I find "Introit: ..." disconcerting and carrying risk someone else will create an entirely new page for their edition. Tu es Petrus (Communio I) (Heinrich Isaac) is easy to look for but of course begs the question whether there's a Tu es Petrus (Communio II) (Heinrich Isaac) and which is which. Thanks again the the beautiful editions! Richard Mix (talk) 20:26, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
- - Hi Richard,
- I get what you're saying with the Tu es Petrus I/II, but it was the only decent way of distinguishing them that I could think of. Since they aren't truly just different editions, but separate pieces with the same text, based on the same chant... well, I don't know, I thought they deserved to be distinguishable, in some way.
- A similar issue will arise if/when I get to all the different settings of "Gaudeamus" for various Marian feasts (at least 6 different settings), as they are all introits (which, by the way, I think should categorically be called "Introit" - I just never saw that discussion before, and I apologize).
- As for the "Alleluia," I don't mind it being parenthetically moved to the end, similar to the (Communio). I do think it is important that Alleluia remain readily accessible in the title, though, so that it can be distinguished from anything else that has the same text, since similar text/titles is a fairly common occurrence on feast days.
- Is a page title something only admins have the capability to edit? If so, I will try to better think these through, and research to be certain no other propers have the same title, but if not, I'd be happy to help rename some of these that I began with "tract, sequence, introit, communio, alleluia," etc. I think you are correct that, search-wise, having the beginning of the title be only that of the motet's title, makes more sense. After all, if someone is looking for Confitemini Domino, but doesn't find it in the Cs, they might not notice it within the "Alleluia..." of the As. --CCooze10 (talk) 22:58, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi again, in reverse order:
- Book 3 is still not added, and of course some links need updating.
- I'm pretty sure you commoners ;-) are allowed to use "move" to change page names; it's not an altogether intuitive label to be sure.
- I prefer Alleluia [Verse incipit] to parentheses
- I've disambiguated (as they say) the Marian Gaudeamuses already, by adding the feast names in parentheses.
- Disambiguation of identically titled pages I can be done 1. by number of voices "a 4", if possible; 2. by date (1555); 3. by source (Book 3); 4. genre (sequence); 5. other distinguishing marks; 6. with Roman numerals when all else fails.
