Welcome and thanks for your score submissions. I have changed the Editor name to the real editor (Francis Bevan), because the name of your commercial firm is neither the real editor. I have also modified the Edition notes and added the right Source field to make them conform to CPDL practice (you cannot begin a line with a space, which has an unwanted effect on the displayed material). Additionally you added "a 4" to the link for the already present edition of the Palestrina, thereby breaking the link to that page (which I have fixed by moving the page). And for some reason you changed the number of editions of a couple of other works on the Victoria page (did you forget which page you were editing?) - anyway, I have fixed these, too.

Looking at the linked to pages on your site, I notice that on the Victoria and Palestrina pages, these two works are the ONLY ones for which you provide free PDFs. Do you intend these as "teaser" editions, aimed at enticing the person who visits into purchasing your other editions?

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for your message - I've been an avid user of the site for a long time and thought I ought to contribute something! I'm sorry about the mistakes I made with the wiki editing - I'm still getting to grips with the code! I will be adding a free complete PDF every week here and on our facebook page so there will be a lot more eventually, but yes I did hope these teasers would direct some more traffic to our shop - is this frowned upon? I'm also putting up the first page of everything (a slow process - I'm almost done with the As!) F

Thanks for you speedy reply. We are always glad when a user is moved to help CPDL by contributing new editions! Also, not to worry about the "teaser" query, for you are not the only one who does this. I do appreciate that you will be adding still more editions. Many thanks! – Chucktalk Giffen 17:31, 15 February 2012 (CST)
