First of all, what do you mean by "MW"? Secondly, I'll get the text source ASAP.

Sorry! "MW" is the Magic Window, the box in the top post in each project thread that lists all the readers and recordings.

I'd like to contribute to this beautiful collection by singing one or two old German church songs. I'm wondering what qualifies as valid source to prove the carol is in public domain.

I'm having a hard time finding them in the known sources like Gutenberg.org, archive.org, wikisource, etc..
Is it enough to provide e.g. the Wikipedia link for copyright info?

(I'm specifically talking about this: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macht_hoch_die_T%C3%BCr)

Sorry, I'm still rather new to this, so I have to ask... :oops:

Thanks in advance,
Eva

We Three Kings: the silence at the end should be 5 secs. (otherwise it's great) :D

Text: Georg Weissel (1590 - 1635); Melodie : Halle 1704;
Satz: Max Reger (1873 - 1916) aus: Zwölf deutsche geistliche Gesänge which was published in 1900 according to the Max Reger Institute. That is in the Public Domain both in the USA and in Europe, so it is fine! I look forward to hearing it.

Use this link as your source: http://www.cantus.org/archiv/carol/machtho.htm

I do like a quote of his, after receiving an unfavourable review of his music:
I am sitting in the smallest room of my house. Your review is in front of me. Soon, it will be behind me.

This seems really cool but I have no idea how it works :oops: could someone please help me out. do you just pick a song out of the collection and sing it and post it up using one of the numbered sections or do you ask for a spot and then pick a song?

Hi, horse --

First find a song you'd like to sing, making sure that the 1) lyrics, 2) tune, and 3) harmony (if you are singing harmony) are all in the public domain, meaning that everything was published before 1923. Ruth has a link in the top post that'll help you locate some sources. After you have chosen your song, post the link to the text and music source in this thread so that we can double check that it is OK to record. Then once you have the OK, you can sing. Details about the intro and ending to use and the file name etc are in the top post as usual.

Be aware that for some Christmas songs, there may be modern versions that are different than the older public domain versions. That's why we need text links even for very familiar old songs.

Have fun with it!

p.s. I think I know where you live. :) (I don't mean that in a creepy stalkery way, just that I grew up not far from there too.)

There is a lot about SC that is hilarious. :) I can say that (with affection) because I am from there. You know the saying -- too small for a republic, too large for an insane asylum.

Side note. Ruth, I am not sure how you would like to eventually arrange the entries, but I am betting that alphabetical by readers' forum names, as I seem to be doing for some unknown reason, is not it. haha. If you'll let me know how you'd like them, I can get them in a little better order for you.

Don't worry about it, Laurie Anne. I will sort out the Magic Window in due course. Computer arrives tomorrow, and then it will be a couple of days before I am all sorted out, then I will be up and running in earnest. Fingers firmly crossed that it is all as it should be, but they claim to test their systems rigorously, so I am not anticipating problems.
