Having already worked on the Victoria page in the past, I'll be happy to adopt his page. ChuckGiffen 17:23, 13 April 2006 (PDT)

Does the program still hold? I would gladly adopt Brahms' page. Arthur 2007-02-16 04:54 CET (03:54 UTC)

Yes, please do - I've done some small bits of cleaning-up on that page in the past, but I'm sure there's more to do.

Hello, I would like to "un-adopt" Brahms in favour of Robert Urmann. Arthur 2009-08-12 14:32 UTC
Hello, I'd love to take Brahms! Arthur: we could be one family, though. Any help and suggestions are welcome anytime! --Robert Urmann 20:16, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

I will adopt those for "John Bertalot" [I notice that for some reason he has been included elsewhere than under the B's]. [] 2008-07-21

The reason John Bertalot doesn't appear in Composers is that none of his works are available for download from CPDL. Hence, he is categorized under Composers (unhosted). As pointed out on his page, some or perhaps all of Bertalot's choral compositions are under copyright and cannot be hosted at CPDL. -- Chucktalk Giffen 05:16, 21 July 2008 (PDT)

I will adopt Edvard Grieg. Roar Kvam

As I would like to learn more about Palestrina, I would also like to adopt his page. SDoonan 18:35, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you both for adopting Grieg and Palestrina. I see that the Grieg adoption is already reflected on the project page, but the page hasn't yet been updated to show Palestrina--I will make that update now.

Seeing as I'm working on it anyway, I'd like to adopt Jacob Arcadelt's page. Wboyle 11:03, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

As I'm Welsh I'd like to adopt Caradog Roberts. Devamedia 16:01, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Volunteering with J. S. Bach page

Hello. I would like to volunteer with maintaining Johann Sebastian Bach's page. I am a Copyist and have much material to contribute and desires to... This site has been a great helping hand for me in many times...Thank you Saniakob 01:11, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

That would be great! Thanks for your offer of help. --Bobnotts talk 19:38, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

So what is the next step? Can I start right now or I have to wait for authorization or something first? Saniakob 21:29, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

I'll add you as the person taking on Bach, and you can add any short info if you like similarly to the other entries. We appreciate your help.

I am no longer volunteering with this page. It is available. - Saniakob 21:00, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Adopt a composer

I'd be happy to adopt my fellow Dutchman Jan Tollius Wverkaik (talk) 09:49, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

William Billings, Daniel Read, and Oliver Holden

May I adopt these three American, mostly eighteenth-century, composers? I have added many works to each, and re-formatted the composer pages. -- Barry Johnston, Bcjohnston523 (talk) 03:09, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Barry, it seems you have already adopted them, unofficially :) Go ahead! Kind regards, —Carlos (talk) Email.gif 04:33, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

A few adoptions

While I've taken a special interest in some composers in practice, I've not got round to adopting anyone till now. I'd like to adopt several composers to whom I'm paying particular attention (as listed on the Project space page - John Alcock Jr., William Bennett, John Broderip, Samuel Chapple, Thomas Clark, Thomas Jarman, Stephen Jarvis, Joseph Key, John Massey, Joseph Stephenson, John Valentine and Samuel Wakely.) They're all English composers more-or-less in the 'West Gallery' tradition in its various forms, active in the 18th and 19th centuries. Thanks, EJG (talk) 19:03, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

And another one - John Foster. Thanks, EJG (talk) 21:11, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
