Victoria - Duplication

Hi Ralph. I think you accidentally uploaded two of the same file - the score you uploaded here of the Pedrell edition was the same as the one you uploaded here. Thanks, KGill talk email 00:50, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

There's two ...

ways to set up an archive I have heard of. Have never figured out the second unfortunately... the first is something like this. After of course opening a new window or tab in your browser :) ...- Create a new page - a subpage of your page (if you don't have permissions to create subpages, that means we may have to go route 2, which I'll look into...) - with a title like

(*)[[User_talk:Ralph_Theo_Misch/archive_1]] (where ... this is how I do it, anyway.. .. - the number 1 goes up to 2 next time, 3 after that, ...) Now come back to this talk page, start editing it, and paste what you want to archive (use cut and paste) from the talk page into the new Archive talk page. then in the new talk page, give a summary and create the page so you don't lose that page. in your old talk page- create a link like that one (next to (*) ) so that the archive page(s) is linked to your talk page.

Hope some of that helps... Eric 00:07, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Zelter: Melodieen zum Schillerschen Musenalmanach

Hi, do you have the "Z." number for this collection? − Grüße − Pierre Ch. 09:13, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

BTW, did you see this? − Pierre Ch. 09:23, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi, just had a look at that's really interesting!! Will have a closer look soon.
→ Z.121: I've already moved the page. This collection isn't part of Das Erbe Deutscher Musik, Vol.106, but it's mentioned there.
BTW: I've uploaded all facsimiles from that volume. Only a few manuscript pages are left. Cordialement --Ralph Theo Misch 10:48, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Schütz, Christmas Concerto

Dear Ralph; Is this the same as the Weihnachtshistorie? And is Heute ist Christus der Herr geboren part of a larger work or is it a single item on its own? For some reason, I can't get into Grove Music this morning -- my university is probably doing some weekend maintenance on its network system. Thanks, Steltz 08:05, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi Steltz, no, it's not the same. As long as I still have not figured out what the original shape of this concert is tagging will remain hypothetical. I'm trying to figure out. Regards --Ralph Theo Misch 09:36, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Tomas Luis de Victoria: Complete Works

Hello Ralph, I a student majoring in choir conducting in Venezuela, and lately I've taken a fond interest in Tomas Luis de Victoria. Due to that I've been downloading many of the Tomas Luis de Victoria files that you've uploaded, unfortunately there's only a part of his opus.

My question is: do you have a physical copy of his complete works?, if so do you intend to upload it all to IMSLP?

It's just that I'm interested in having some complete volumes and if you need any help I will gladly help. Well all in all, I hope you're doing well and I hope to hear from you soon.

Miguel Quintero

Hallo Miguel, unfortunately I've only got the first volume of Victoria's Opera Omnia (Ed. Pedrell): Tomus I. Motecta. Many of the motets of that book are already uploaded by Homerdundas (as you might have seen). So I'm going to scan and upload those pieces which are not yet available here. I've already scanned Pedrell's preface (Spanish/German/French) but didn't know where to put it so far.
I've looked for the other volumes from that edition as well: without success - they seem to be rather rare. Maybe Homerdundas has got an idea?
At least I hope I can help you by contributing the lacking motets next days.
BTW - there's a pretty large collection of Victoria's works at All the best! --Ralph Theo Misch 16:41, 31 July 2011 (UTC)


If you enjoyed the Spanish library, you might like to try the Portuguese. There are only about 100 works, many in MS.

It's easy to use- you can sort in many ways. Make sure you go to "partituras". The scans are good- the old ones and ms are color, post 1800 mainly mono. Dowloading is good- the whole work. Like some scores are for insiders only, so you can only get the "publica" ones. One interesting work for EM fans is a printed book of instrumental works from 1620. just sort the files by date to find it.

Good luck WilliamBunting

Liszt, Cantico

Dear Ralph -- changed the latin tag to italian, not quite sure how that happened! Steltz 09:19, 7 August 2011 (UTC)


I don't know about refraining from them, but of course take triple caution - of course (not just because of liability also of course.) But the conditions placed by the combination of moral, legal and many other considerations doesn't make choice of project - well, anything... easier- for all that for all concerned I think it is a labor of love all the same :) Eric 22:43, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

SBB has several RSS feeds, quite a few in fact. I subscribe to their musik, musiknoten and musikhandschriften (manuscript) ones. They have many non-music ones too. Wish the US Library of Congress did too for new acquisitions, new scans or somewhat...- maybe they do and I just haven't noticed... Eric 01:15, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

W’hogen baadenu (Lewandowski, Louis)

Dear Ralph -- this has an audio file with no score, and I'm unclear as to instrumentation. Do you plan on uploading a pdf file? Thanks, Steltz 20:38, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

I answered here. --Ralph Theo Misch 23:27, 2 September 2011 (UTC)


Hi Christoph,

I noticed you’d contributed several pages from Barton Hudson’s complete works edition. Is there likely to be any more where this came from? I’d be keen to see IMSLP have a copy of the Exemplum octo modorum (from volume VI) or perhaps the Lamentations, which are particularly fine. Regards, Philip @ © talk 05:19, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

C.P.E. Bach - Cello concerto

Hi Ralph,

I'd like to play with my amateurs orchestra this concerto, but I haven't the orchestral parts (or at least the score). At your scanned files is written that there is the score, too, but only the piano reduction exists and nothing more. Have you really the orchestral score, or do you know where can I find this one or the orchestral parts ?

Thanks, Theo Chircu

Hi Chircu, yes, at first glance this may seem a bit confusing. 'Complete score' not automatically means 'full score'. So the piano reduction is a 'complete score' as well, but classified as an arrangement. Unfortunately I havn't got the orchestral or 'full' score. I think if there was an digital source, Generoso would have already discovered it. Sorry. Regards --Ralph Theo Misch 10:07, 14 September 2011 (UTC)


  • Musicsack lists a bassoonmaker (perhaps, though they don't say, also editor etc. ...) Joseph Ebner (1791–1848) - if that is consistent with the publications in question perhaps this should be considered? (There is a slightly earlier Leopold Ebner whose wind trio gets performed on BBC from time to time, but that's as nevermind though perhaps they're related :) ) Eric 05:18, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
    • Hi Eric, thank you for your message! I had already discovered this item. But it did not quite fit into the scheme. Well, that's an invalid argument, of course... --Ralph Theo Misch 01:05, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Then there's Carl Ebner whose cello etudes op.50 were published in 1908. Common last name or musical family? ... makes me curious. Sorry to keep dropping in like this though. Best luck!!! Eric 02:43, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
Ebner isn't a common name - at least not in this area. I only know the poet Ebner-Eschenbach. But your candidate is unrivaled. We should take him. Thank you! All the best --Ralph Theo Misch 23:26, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Ah good! And to you Eric 04:24, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Adagio, op.24 (Fesca, Alexander)

Dear Ralph: It turns out that this is the second movement of the Piano Trio no.2 op.12, and as I haven't found any source for the separate opus number (it's not on the actual music), I've moved the files to the Trio No.2, op.12 page and deleted the Adagio page. Steltz 14:46, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Well researched - thank you! --Ralph Theo Misch 01:06, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Kunst der Fuge

Hallo Ralph,

Ich habe Dir auf meiner Dikussionsseite geantwortet. Gruß --Rarus 01:01, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Absence message

I'll be back on 28th December. --Ralph Theo Misch 22:48, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Hallo Ralph!
Freue mich auf die Ergebnisse Deiner Produktion. Erst mal wünsche ich, daß Du gut und fröhlich ins neue Jahr kommst. Gruß --Rarus 19:21, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

another interesting RSS feed

that I just noticed, by the way, is Sibley's new acquisitions feed for music- gives one some idea of what they've recently acquired (and hence what they might be digitizing in the future... :) ) Eric 17:34, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

I answered here. --Ralph Theo Misch 23:04, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

There's a list of new titles here (or for Music Titles at the Sibley Library, here) - the link I gave is a link specifically to add to a RSS feeder - does it still not work then though? it did for me if I gave you the right link -- which I believe I did... Eric 04:11, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Abt Offertory

seems to be the case of a number of collections (with Abt and otherwise) at the Library of Congress from the late 19th century, so doesn't come as a great shock :) Eric 00:10, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
