How does this relate to lyrics (texts), compositions (tunes/melodies) (which is what "composer" currently refers to), and arrangements? From what I understand of the above and from my musical experience, the above is an expression of an arrangement. Lyrics (poems, other texts) can exist for years before being associated with a composition (see Sussie Nielsen's Pigens morgen (not fully AR'd!), where most of the tunes were composed by Sussie, while all of the lyricists, except herself of course, were dead before she was even born (the youngest poet featured, apart from herself, died in the 1940's)!). However, what we get on the recording is not the lyrics or the tune as they are written, but instead as they are arranged. (This might also be related to the TradFactor, but I have to think more about it.) -- FrederikSOlesen 21:04, 19 April 2007 (UTC) (AnswerMe, please.)

  • Another example to the above: How about genres such as "spoken word" and audio books that may not have compositions (melodies) associated, but still feature lyrics and (possibly) arrangement(s)? -- FrederikSOlesen 21:11, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
