Hi, Drew. Thanks for your contributions. I'm adding MXL (compressed MusicXML) files to all editions which haven't, as such an interchange format allows users to produce rehearsal files much more easily. I hope you don't mind, if I add such files to your editions or, better, would you add yourself MXL versions of your files, exported from your music notation software. It's as easy as File/Export/MusicXML (compressed) ;-) Kind Regards, Claude. Claude T (talk) 15:34, 25 August 2022 (UTC)
Hi Claude! Of course, will get on it. Droopop (talk) 19:06, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Gloria, Old Hall 8 (John Cooke) duplicate submission

Hi. Apparently you submitted exactly the same edition (all music files are the same), so I have commented out the second one and suggest that you delete it (or I can do it for you). Thanks for the interesting Old Hall scores! -- Charlestalk Giffen 01:38, 15 June 2023 (UTC)

Erroneous use of origin as title

Dear Mr Ellis, you appear to have embarked upon a wholesale re-naming (half a dozen today and continuing) of Mag & Nuncs (evening services) as if they were the whole service, thereby obscuring the nature of the work pages involved. current, well-established, convention is to index work pages by their nature not their origin. All existing pages which indicate the source in the title follow the formula Title Origin (Composer) e.g. Deus Misereatur (Fifteenth Service) (William Byrd). Please explain why this convention is to be abandoned for an inappropriately synecdocheic form. And I note the you are not correcting the consequent broken links arising from your work-page retitlings (e.g. Mag & Nunc pages).Cjshawcj (talk) 22:24, 15 October 2023 (UTC)

Sure. Firstly there is no clear convention to my eyes, some pages are a whole service, some are the mag and nunc, some are just the mag etc. so it makes sense to have these all indexed on one page. As a "service" is one piece, it makes sense to have this information all on one page rather than arbitrarily split up. Just more efficient. Thanks for drawing my attention to the broken links, though. Droopop (talk) 00:00, 16 October 2023 (UTC)
