Croce Penitential psalms

Wotcher. Welcome to the nightmare world of Croce's multiple printings! There seems to be some trouble with multiple pages for these psalms. Even allowing for a merger of two similar pages, the categorization as a "larger work" seems to me specious - it is no more a larger work than any other collection of motets, and should be accorded the same treatment, with a bog-standard publication page. Currently the component works are double counted on the work page (or treble counted, if you include the English contrafacts) being listed both as a larger work, and as individual items. The problem seems to stem from the fact that Sabine Cassola often directs that works are lumped together in proprietary (non-standard) bundles. Cjshawcj (talk) 09:30, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

P.S. After writing the above, I have noticed that today a new proprietary bundle has been posted (Tallis Seven potential psalms). This too is double-counted on the composer page. I don't believe that editorial repackaging should be incorporated on CPDL workpages. What is the party-line?Cjshawcj (talk) 10:04, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
