    When it comes to copyright

    This is an interesting article on the subject, aimed mostly at the wonderful IMSLP http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/22/ar...pagewanted=all
    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.

    Interesting reading, David.

    Hopefully, it won't drag the site down again as it did a few years ago. One downside to IMSLP is the "editions" (like for organ scores of Bach) are the Gesselschaft Edition, certainly not as good, imo, as the Dupre or Schweitzer from an accuracy standpoint.

    I've downloaded thousands of organ scores from that site ... it's my virtual library addition to my 3 legal sized filing cabinets of printed scores.

    Lars - take a look at the full score of Schoenberg's massive Gurre-Lieder, needs to be printed in large format (broadsheet! or A3 at the least). Love it, such a luscious and richly scored work.

    I see that WIMA, another source of free scores, is considering some changes and a discussion is ongoing at this site

    WIMA composer list here

    I see they have all of John Stanley's Op 5,6 & 7 voluntaries, but only one of his concertos Op10 No 6.
    Cheers MIKE.
