On the surprising use of rehearsal marks
Written on 2022-01-18 by mirabilos
I got a curious request over at the mu͒.com score-sharing website concerning my edition of Händel’s Hallelujah (from the Messiah), https://www.free-scores.com/sh eetmusic?p=aGzJOb16i1 over here.

The commentor gave a four-out-of-five-star rating, commenting they liked it very much, that it’s a faithful reproduction (unlike most), thanked for including measure numbers (huh? isn’t that common), and that they’d upgrade it to five stars if I included “the usual rehearsal marks, as orchestral conductors use them.”

Huh, what?

OK, the edition (from a German publisher) I digitalised did not have any rehearsal marks, otherwise I’d certainly have put them in. I asked the commentor for their set of rehearsal mark positions.

We know rehearsal marks, of course, but I haven’t seen any put with this particular piece yet.

This started some research, culminating in a rather specific review of an (English-language) Urtext edition by a German publisher, on a British book selling portal, tearing it down for not having “the” rehearsal marks, so the vocalists apparently cannot communicate with the orchestra. Which lacks measure numbers. (Ah hah!)

From what I could find out, there’s a set of rehearsal marks A to G that are somewhat standardised and that appear near the end of the 19ᵗʰ century (if not earlier), and which (at least) English-language orchestras fully rely on, but which are totally UNKNOWN in Germany. (That, and Hallelujah is №. 44 in Händel’s (he lived in the UK by then) holograph and most English editions, but №. 39 in most German partituras. Apparently, there’s a formal edition of Händel’s entire works, historical-critical, which tacks some recitativos on the tail of the previous numbered movement; the traditional Novello numbers have more distinction but not a fully standardised ordering. And there are alternative movements, made for specific performances.)

Huh. Okay. So, I ended up including measure numbers (which we use anyway), the “apparently usual” English rehearsal marks (to facilitate international cooperation), and I always include an ambitus for the vocal parts as well (this is a thing of mine, as this is otherwise an Ancient Music feature, but it helps me to more quickly see which parts I can sing and how, given a wide vocal ambitus but unusual tessitura).

I also took the chance to update it as much as possible to the latest v2 style of mine. This score is engraved rather tightly, so the accompanying relayout was still quite some amount of work, and it keeps the slightly smaller spatium. Redoing this in v3 would have been rather too much effort for what few spare time I have between $dayjob (in IT/CS, not in music), the cat, hobbies, the cat, family/household, the cat, choir… you get it ☻

I hope the reader is similarily delighted by the updates to my music editions.

Personally, I was most delighted by the commentor’s note that it’s a faithful reproduction. Making mistakes by hurrying or other accidents is my worst fear. I do not have anyone to read over my editions once I did them (once before putting in the final clefs, to easier compare; another time the final layout to look for overlaps, bad page turns, slurs/ties/dynamics, etc.) and one cannot find one’s own errors with sufficient chance. Volunteers welcome! (Sorry, can’t pay for this, I’m not getting paid either.)

Explanation for the MuseScore .org vs. .com problems
Written on 2021-08-09 by mirabilos
In https://bernardgreenberg.com/M useScore.html BSG, who has since left both MuseScore sites, explains a bit on the history of both, the differences between them, and the problems with either.

I just have one thing to add: since a while, MuseScore.*org* is also no longer volunteer-driven; for example, “management” has decided to do no further 3.x release despite over one hundred bugfix commits piling up on one of the volunteers’ github branches. Instead, people are supposed to wait for MuseScore 4, which is expected (as banana software —&#8202 ;ripens at the customer’s —&#82 02;of course) no earlier than the end of this year, will again break the layout (and possible tons of other things) of existing scores, will move core functionality from the Free/libre MuseScore application into merely gratis but nōn-Free plugins, has had multiple copyright violations over the course of its development, has had “management” outright lie, and has a number of other questionable things that make even the volunteers second-guess it.

I guess, the same way as we have to have the last MuseScore 2 version around for scores created with versions older than 3, we’ll also need a MuseScore 3 version handy even when MuseScore 4 is released. With no support or possibility to make a bugfix release to make it even compile with current Qt versions, basically everyone does their own thing. (I’m backporting tons of stuff to the Debian packages; fixes, but also e.g. the new MScore notational font. Newer soundfonts are packaged already anyway.)

The question is, which version. I personally was totally fucked up by MuseScore 3.3, following 3.2.3 (the first actually *usable* 3.x version; see, banana software!), which broke the muscle memory of how notes are entered. The new way is supposedly easier for newbies, but they didn’t have to remove the old way now, did they? (This is also where management told me that they get more _new_ users per month than _total_ nōn-Win/Mac users, so existing users aren’t important to them. Yes, I was told that outright.)

So, I’m using 3.2.3, and because my volunteer time is also limited, the Debian package is also at 3.2.3 (with a hundred bugfixes backported).

Now I’m wondering whether to backport more, or whether to re-add the old note input method to newer 3.x versions. The latter won’t be seen by anyone not using the Debian/PPA packages, though, as we can’t have any new version. Sucks.

"Why BSG left"

Something wrong with musescore.com (part 3)
Written on 2021-08-09 by mirabilos
So, apparently, I had been banned by accident, and it’s restored now. Huh. (I only heard the reason (by accident) when it came up in a .org forum post (where people were missing BSG) though, the support response didn’t mention it.)

So, now I can upload my scores to everywhere again. But first, off to choir rehearsal!

Something wrong with musescore.com (part 2)
Written on 2021-08-08 by mirabilos
I just found out that my profile page https://musescore.com/mirabilo s/ pretends “This user is banned due to violation of Community Guidelines”.

This seems to be a bug somewhere. I got no notification of anything I violated *or* of having been banned, so I can only assume a software bug mistakenly marks users as banned for no reason. Huh. *shrug*

The former “community” site is worsening still. They updated their Terms of Service, but not to fix the problems I pointed out years ago, no… they added more problems, the worst-looking is that users are now supposed to “assume all responsibility for compliance with all laws and regulations of the United States”… which is laughable considering the works are uploaded from all over the world, many faithful editions of PD works not copyrightable anyway, the site is operated from Belgium and the holding sits in Russia. Silent update, too. At https://twitter.com/Knoblauchk eks/status/1424201637938216964 I wondered whether this is even allowed with Creative Commons licences. (I also wonder if the clause is even valid… you can’t just put _anything_ into AGBs with private individuals. I certainly also never granted them the right to impose such restrictions on content of mine.)

Hah, and they fucked up the section numbering AGAIN, while also fixing some of the section numbering fuckups from earlier. Does nobody proofread these things? They have a lawyer (who contacted me years ago when I reported the problems, which incidentally are the same GitHub had at that time and quickly fixed). Hmm, given I never heard back from that lawyer, maybe they *had* one?

It looks more and more like that site is emphasising the “former” more than the “community”. A pity.

Now I can’t publish all my scores _here_ either, but most of them. It’s just bad a large userbase won’t find them as easily…

Something bad is going on on the former MuseScore “community” site. My profile picture is gone; I cannot open new threads or reply in threads any more, only post comments, which go away after a few hours though; I can only see my overall statistics but not the per-score statistics; …

I think they did something stupid.

I’m self-publishing anyway, and I uploaded most of my sheet music to this site already. Too bad for the visibility and what remained of the community of half a decade ago, but… meh…

Uploaded most of my Free Sheet Music here!
Written on 2021-05-27 by mirabilos
I’ve uploaded most of my Free Sheet Music (most of which originated from IMSLP, and much of which I also uploaded to the MuseScore former-community site) to free-scores.com now. Unfortunately, I can only upload PDF, MP3 and MIDI files here, so you’ll have to visit my own webserver to get the original MuseScore files (and MusicXML exports and automatically extracted metadata). (I should upload more of the modern editions I created back to IMSLP, too, I know…)

I’m still waiting for the moderator to create the missing composers, then I can add that to the remaining scores so they can get published here.

See http://www.mirbsd.org/music/li cences/ for the full texts of the various Free (libre) licences used.

Enjoy, and don’t hesitate to give feedback, especially if I made any mistakes…
