Categorizing by year

I was a little startled to see Dido and Aeneas, Z 626 (Henry Purcell) in Category:1925 works since the work page has "3" for the first parameter. Shall we simply delete the word "first" from the category pages, or do we want a bunch of [[Category:Reprinted [for the N time?] YYYY works]] pages? Richard Mix (talk) 00:55, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

I understand what you are saying. I would propose to remove the word "first" (in Template:{{CatTxt}}). I thought about changing Template:{{Pub}} so only the first publication would be assigned to a category, but there are quite a few work pages where we don't know date of first publication, just a later one. Also, I think it is more useful to have all publication dates in a category, especially in your case where the 1925 publication is an arrangement. Good point about reprints, but sometimes it's useful to know where to find it in a recent (or more widely known) publication. Personally I'd rather let editors decide whether the reprint or copy is important enough to cite on the work page. — Barry Johnston (talk) 04:21, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
Agreed, and simpler to do than I had thought!
In fact, it looks like the Z 626 harpsichord realization might have just entered PD-US. Richard Mix (talk) 21:24, 3 January 2021 (UTC)


"no=10-11" doesn't sort correctly in MultiPubList so for Ego autem constitui regem meum (Adam Gumpelzhaimer) I followed the example of Gloria in excelsis Deo - Qui tollis (Adam Gumpelzhaimer). When commented out, however, entry 11 disappears from Sacrorum_concentuum_(Adam_Gumpelzhaimer)#Liber_2, and I'm not sure if there's a workaround. Ideally of course no=10|no=11 would fit in the same template and display as "1614 in Sacrorum concentuum, Liber 2, nos. 10 & 11" on the work page. Richard Mix (talk) 03:27, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

More numbering parameters?

I've given myself a headache wondering whether the 1569 and 1579 prints of Liber primus motettorum (Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina) somehow were different, and hadn't expected that numbering might depend on the edition. Should Template:Pub have more parameters like no2= & per[icope]= ? (I guess the 1st can be covered by Pub|2)

Choralis Constantinus (Heinrich Isaac) is a special case. Choralis constantinus I is unnumbered in the 1550 print, but the 1555 volumes both go by pericopes, so: vol 1 no 1, 2, 3, or i.1.1, i.1.2, i.1.3 … or 1Int[roit], 1Gr, 1Sequ? Richard Mix (talk) 00:26, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

0 for parameter 1?

The documentation breaks off and things seem to be under construction here: should I leave Protector noster, MH 501 (Johann Michael Haydn) with {{Pub|0|1789|}} as is for now? Richard Mix (talk) 22:03, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
