That transcription of the Bridal Song (#08745), i would like to know who did it. I'm looking at Opus Transcribisticum and i see that the most probable transcribers are Eduard Schött (1856-1933; Presser edition) and Otto Singer (1863-1931; Ditson edition). Any clues? Thanks.

Actually, i've been looking at the vocal score and i see a lot of similarity between the piano transcription and the piano accompaniment to the chorus. It seems to me that either the arranger of the vocal score (Karl Klindworth) also did the piano arrangement, or, the piano arrangement was done by someone else based on the vocal score.

Bridal Chorus Piano Solo - Typeset is incorrect

There are two files for piano solo bridal chorus: a scanned copy and a typeset copy. I'm guessing the typeset was make in some program, trying to copy the notes and style of the scanned copy. However, there are a few mistakes. First, in several measures, there are triplet 16th notes that are not marked as triplet but rather standard 16th notes. In measure 44, the left hand is told to play a b flat at the bottom of the chord, but the correct note should be d natural (b flat sounds awful which is why I noticed and compared it to the original scanned copy).

I am currently working on retypsetting the song via lilypond. Hopefully I'll get it up in a few days. Dymutaos 20:48, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
