Status: Pre-RFC for English Language-specific CSG standardization

Catalogue & number

Opus and number should always be lower-cased and abbreviated: op. and no. If they are used together, space is delimiter. Specific catalogues (eg. Köchel) should follow their usual style.

Examples

op.4
op.27 no.3
Symphony no.5


Keys

The word "in" should always precede the key name.

Sharp/flat

If the key name contain the words "sharp" or "flat", they should be in lower case and a hyphen should be used as delimiter.

Major/minor

The words "major" & "minor" are always lower-cased.

  • Following the style in Grove, "major" or "minor" does not have to be added

Examples

A-flat major
C-sharp minor
Concerto in D
Symphony in E major


Quotes & libretti

Although capitalization should follow MB standard capitalization/English, librettos & quotes should follow sentence style. Use double quotes if a different character has been used (' or something)
