Template talk:New lyricist

From ChoralWiki

Hi Chuck et al,

I was just mentioning my own preferences to Carlos and he pointed me to the edit summary discussion here. Possible ambiguity of the simple "Settings" isnt quite avoided by "Musical settings of literary works", as we dont spell out whose settings and whose literary output. "Settings by composers" is a familiar phrase from text pages. What do you think? Richard Mix 20:50, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure what you are getting at. This template is applied to a lyricist, and hence the settings refer to the output of that lyricist. Secondly, any listed setting is supposed to contain the composer name (actually it should be a link to the corresponding ChoralWiki page). See, for example, William Whiting, Christina Rossetti, or Thomas Hughes. Am I missing something here?

I thought perhaps you were anticipating how to deal with figures like Nietzsche and Hoffmann, who set others' words as well as their own. Why not just have "Settings"? Richard Mix 00:53, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
