ChoralWiki:Milestone reached: 17,000 score pages
On 16th November, 2013, Choral Public Domain Library reached the 17,000 milestone in the number of Score pages here at ChoralWiki. To put this in perspective, the 8,000 mark was achieved by 31st July 2006, and the 12,000 mark by 29th September 2010. It has been just 11 months since the count stood at 15,000 and 6 months since the count was 16,000. We are also rapidly closing in on this year's goal of 2,000 new Score pages.
Nearly 11,700 score pages are categorized as Sacred music, and somewhat over 5,400 pages are categorized as Secular music. For a breakdown by musical era, as of today CPDL has:
- 621 Medieval works
- 7039 Renaissance works
- 1933 Baroque works
- 1130 Classical works
- 2818 Romantic works
- 633 Early 20th century works
- 2733 Modern works
Many thanks are due to our prolific contributors.
