In the Jacob Obrecht page there is a SortWorks:Masses that controls four masses, two of which are out of order because they have single quotes, followed by a long list of masses divided by top, mdl, btm flags. The top four are in blue plain type, the rest are in black italics. All very confusing. John Hetland (talk) 18:41, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, yes. You can see other ways of organizing things at Johannes Lupi and some discussion at Talk:Johannes Ockeghem. Pierre de Manchicourt has blue links incorporated into an alphabetical list, and now that we have a Template:CheckMissing the redundant list at the top could well be dispensed with, and perhaps that's how Obrecht could be deal with.
As for parodies, I think punctuation marks in page names can cause problems, so a second capitalization is usual: Missa au travail suis (Johannes Ockeghem) probably ought to be moved to agree with Missa Ultimi miei sospiri (Philippe de Monte). Richard Mix (talk) 19:58, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
Oh, now that you've fixed it, I see that the black entries were not actual entries, but hopes for future entries. And now that they are all together, this makes perfect sense. I think I like this better than the tabular arrangement. John Hetland (talk) 20:45, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
