    Surely these works are still protected by copyright?
    Pierre Cochereau rocked, man.

    Yes, but there are Durand and Leduc versions. Do you know someone who have them?

    Although some of us may "have them", that mere fact does not entitle us to violate copright laws and reproduce them for others. Those editions are still in copyright and will be for many years to come I suspect. Any organist of any respect will honor any/all copyright laws ... I would want that same protection for any piece that I composed ... composed so as to help earn a respectible living.

    Pony up and pay the price to get them ... that's what the rest of us did who have those editions in our libraries.

    Possibly you might have organists in your region that might loan you their copy to use for a specified time period (?).

    I would buy them, but i want a complete organ works of Messiaen first. For a collection i will wait until 1923, this is the main reason. I have thousand of dollars of organ sheet music collection, it's not a problem. Already exist the option of pm to give me the pdf.

    I must confess that I am not entirely sure exactly what you mean in every part of your post above.

    However, the fact remains that it would be breaking the law to provide an unauthorised copy, either by PM or any other means. If you have already spent thousands of dollars on your collection, presumably another hundred dollars (I doubt it would be more) would not be a problem?

    The problem it isn't the money, but the single pieces. I want the entire Messiaen organ works sheet music collection in one block, like barenreiter for Bach. But the copyright ends 2023, not 1923 like post above(a mistake). So for two pieces i prefer pdf, since i have all his works in this format except for these three.
