Introduction

There are over 1,350 composer pages at CPDL. In an effort to improve the quality and information on these composer pages, CPDL has an Adopt-A-Composer program. Those composers who have already been adopted already are listed below. Yes, this is a chance to study a composer, aid in developing a that composer's web page, and help your fellow choral musician all at once! For this program we are looking for volunteers to select a composer, and add content to the composer's wiki page. While there is a great deal of flexibility in this, we ask that contributors stay with the general guidelines and organizational structures of this wiki. If you are interested in "adopting" a composer, please volunteer on the talk page, and an admin will add your name to the list below. If several folks volunteer for the same composer, admins may need to assign composers. Thanks!

Content items

  • List of sheet music organized by various criteria (publication date, opus, genre)
  • List of complete works (choral/vocal/all)
  • List of all publications/editions
  • Biography
  • Bibliographic information
  • External links
  • Recordings of interest
  • images

These items do not have to be included, and other content not listed here may also be added.

Currently adopted composers

  • Juan del Encina - Here we have such a very interesting composer of the Catholic Kings of Spain (really, the four kingdoms that became Spain). If would you mind, I want to adopt him. - Oscar Santos (22 November 2007)
  • Robert Jones - Not a main interest, but I've 4/6 of his books in facsimile on my office floor, so I'll take him on. Rob Durk (24 March 2006)
  • Claudio Monteverdi – I'm currently preparing to conduct an entire program of Monteverdi, so I might as well sign up for him. Philip Legge (23 March 2006)
