Bob, I wonder why you moved this particular page for capitalization, whilst most other individual English pieces in the opus list are capitalized. It is standard to capitalize a title in English, so I generally do, though I do not in German or Latin. This points out another inconsistency on CPDL and the Handel page in particular. -Paul Marchesano Marchesa 22:48, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Paul. It has been CPDL practice (policy?) for several years now to title works whose titles is "text" (ie. simply the first few words of the text underlay of the work) with the capitalization that the text would ordinarily have (as text). Thus, something like "Jesus loves me, this I know" instead of "Jesus Loves Me This I Know" ... this practice is a widely used one nowadays, especially in the current electronic media age. I know it causes confusion for some, but people seem to get used to it soon enough. And the presence of extra capitals in other instances of "title-is-text" simply means that they haven't been processed yet. -- Chucktalk Giffen 20:44, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
