When submitting material, please provide as much information as possible, such as:

    * Source of text (music score, book, CD booklet, internet poetry site, concert program, etc.) - if a score or book, bibliographical information is appreciated
    * Setting instrumentation
    * Dates of composition and/or publication, for the setting and the text, if possible.
    * Textual changes that might have been made from the original text
    * Composer and Text Author information if missing from the website
If you are submitting a text, please check under the index of first lines to make sure the text doesn't already exist in the collection - often the same text is set under many different titles.

Please do not send me copyright translations (from CD booklets or published books) unless you have obtained permission for them to be reproduced on this site.

To request permission to reprint a translation that appears on this website, please contact the translator directly. Every volunteer translator retains his or her copyright. If contact information is available it will show up beside the name of the translator. If there is nothing there, it means I have no current contact information and you will need to find out how to contact the translator (or their estate) yourself.

You may reprint (offline) any translations by Emily Ezust for student or faculty recital programs or free concerts without asking permission provided the following credit is given:
         Translation copyright © by Emily Ezust,

For all other purposes, including CD booklets, re-publication online, and reprinting in non-academic programs, please contact me to discuss a possible fee.

Note
Dear visitors,
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. The REC Music Foundation has generously provided server-space since 1997, but I have many costs in maintaining and expanding the Archive (and paying my bills). So if you find the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
