J.S. Bach, Volume 2 by Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965). Translated by Ernest Newman (1868 - 1959)

Volunteers outside the USA: Albert Schweitzer died in 1965. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.

    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/jsbach00widogoog
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Has he decided how to label each piece? I had been thinking by page number and then by order of occurrence on that page - e.g. 96 (2). I would be interested in his (and your) ideas on that.

Best,

Hi Barbara,

Here's what I'm thinking. If it's obvious what instrument is supposed to be used (i.e. it's specifically mentioned in the text [e.g. extract 3 on page 75], or labelled on the sheet music [e.g. extract 1 on page 77]), I'll try to use that one, otherwise, I'll use piano. And also, anywhere where it is just a rhythm (e.g. page 47) I will just use middle C on piano to demonstrate it.

My naming scheme is such that 'p70b' is the second piece of music on page 70, for example.

OK then Kim and our friendly conductor. Here is the spreadsheet so far:

All input welcome,

Cool. Thank you.
Can you also split out the singing parts so that those can be done separately as well.
The MW would have up to 3 lines for each chapter.
I would like to suggest that the music is uploaded in zip files corresponding to the sections. I'll include this in the project instructions.
Barbara, Are you going to do the editing or do we need to advertise for one too?

Done. There are only 2 so far and they have their own column - "Vocal". I'll distinguish the voices by "M" and "F".

4 lines for one of the chapters so far!

Kim, do you mean am I going to do the pasting in of JorWat's music files? That's what I had in mind.

Best,

Quick question, do you want me to produce piano recordings for the vocal parts?

The book was published in 1911. I have investigated - not only did the author live into his 90s, so did the translator!

I'm afraid that The Rule of the Shorter Term applies in Australia only for "Published Editions". Though I don't know what "published editions" means, it probably means that I'm excluded from recording this volume.

Presumably the contributors to Vol. 1 were OK geographically. I just never thought about it. So sorry to take up people's time.

I hope Jorwat's hard work is not wasted.

Best,

Barbara

I did read the act with great care and reached the conclusion that the rule of shorter term does apply in Australia - except in so many cases that I am never comfortable that it does.
The book was certainly available in Australia - we had it at home. Schweitzer is not PD in the EU I would think - it fact probably only the USA,

Yeah... I'm in Europe...

I guess that means I should stop working on this.

It's irritating, as I assume the sheet music itself is in the public domain.

Yes it is , so you should be OK - but I'll seek other advise - my qualifcations in international copyright law are not great (actually non existent)

Anne
Anne, why is Canada out? 1965+50=2016 and we're in 2017 ...

So from what I can see the "Rule of Shorter Term" means that if a book is published in a different location - say the US - and their copyright timeframes are shorter than those for Australia then those apply. It doesn't say where the book was published, but it is a European based publisher who is still in business so my guess is that it is off the list for Australians too.

Sorry - I also assumed "Bach ... ergo MUST BE PD!"

My thinking is to give the project - as great as it sounds a miss and let a US based person pick it up.

Anne could you update the Multiple volume thread with the pd info on this, unless you disagree with me on the Australian option and Barbara can still work on it.

Yes I was wrong with Canada and NZ, I checked the first volume but of course that was 2010 - perhaps you all can migrate. I've asked others about the music , but they are mainly asleep.

I must be missing something because it seems to me Vol. 1 couldn't have been PD in the US in 2010?
