    Public domain music

    IMSLP, a great source of Public Domain (royalty free) music has a feature I've only just realised! It's main page has daily updates of new scores added. Of course, I bookmarked the composer's page as I search for music by composer. Now I religiously look at the new scores list to see if any delicious, tasty morsel is there to nibble at ...

    and this is it

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    This is a good site I have used it frequently.

    Yes, Bill, my point rather is about that updated score list, well worth a daily look at.

    Sometimes the featured scores list can have some interesting stuff on it as well.
