User:Symphonick/CSG Work Titles
|Status: This page describes an active style guideline proposal and is not official.|
The name should be recorded in MB as it exists in print from a reliable source, such as a recent urtext edition. Adding to or altering a title given by the composer or publisher should be avoided (see aliases).
If you don't have access to the best edition, just use the best source you can find. The title can be corrected later.
Note: So-called generic or "untitled" works are outside the scope of this proposal.
If possible, use the language of the first performance (if the work was written with a specific performance in mind).
Note: It is expected that eventually, both the user's preferred language AND the default workname can be shown in the UI.
Remember that nicknames are local.
Note: There's possibility we get a specific field for nicknames.
Since catalogue numbers are an important part of identifying a work, as a workaround one catalogue number can be added to the title. If more than one catalogue is used for a work, try to find the most commonly used catalogue.
Note: There's possibility we get a specific field for catalogue numbers, or that advanced properties can be used for this purpose.
