I have created this page because it does not seem to have ever existed. Would an admin see if any such score page ever existed? If anyone can add any more information to the page, please do so. Bobnotts 10:06, 4 November 2006 (PST)

Score file

In addition, the score file has a .mus extension but opens in Acrobat Reader on my computer. Is it a PDF? anyone else? Bobnotts 10:13, 4 November 2006 (PST)

Link added on composer page

The link to this page seemed to be created on the following date according to the WIKI records:

The user Dwalczak seems to be quite active. Dwalczak: Did you just not get round to creating the score page or did you not submit the score?

P.S. This may seem to be very investigatory but it's not meant to be! I'm just trying to get the right information on the page.


Finale 2k3 refused to open the notation file, so I tried 2k7, which reported that the original file was created in Finale 2006. I updated the notation file link to reflect this. Upon opening the !.pdf file, I found that the file was incorrectly optimized; the first two measure of the bass part were missing from the score. I re-optimized the score, and created a new ~.pdf, which I uploaded, overwriting the original (which in retrospect, I shouldn't have done, but I have the original, and am prepared to move it back to an archive position, if necessary.

Thanks Noel. I'm not very familiar with Finale so I probably didn't create the PDF correctly. Bobnotts 11:27, 21 January 2007 (PST)

No, Bob, you generated the ~.pdf correctly. But Finale allows for hiding empty staves, and if you hide and empty stave, and push a non-empty measure (or more) into it, what was in the non-empty measure is now hidden, too. The original creator of the Finale file apparently hid the choral lines of the first system, and then pushed the first two measure of next system onto the first system, thereby hiding the first two measures of the bass line. I removed the optimization, and reoptimized so that the first two measures of the bass line now show.

I requested the piece be typset and when I noticed someone edited and posted it, I downloaded and printed it (at the time it was a Finale File.) After several months and no one created the score page, I did. In the meantime, it appears that someone created the PDF and removed the Finale File. It was so long ago I don't remember who uploaded the original file. -DWalczak

P.S. There appears to be text missing from the Soprano line when the enter at the beginning. 1545 21 January, 2007
