 I agree with Irene. A musicologist, a performing singer, a music librarian, a collaborative
 pianist...... with all respect to Ms Ezust, any of the above would know better than a computer
 programmer what should be included. I find it odd that REC Music Foundation would give the reins
 for a world resource to someone like that. Frankly it doesn't even look like she knows that much
 about the web. This site is not at all modern looking.  It's hard to take it as seriously as one
 ought when it looks so entrapped in the 90's.

 Irene, Emily is doing this for no pay and has provided a wealth of valuable information. Why do
 you think this site should be run by a musicologist or performer?  Why would one even need to read
 music to run this site?

 I would like to make everyone aware that Emily Ezust is NOT a musicologist, performer, or even a
 singer or collaborative pianist. She has no musical credentials that I can discover. With all due
 respect for a good effort so far, I believe the REC Music Foundation should put a musicologist or
 a classically-trained singer in charge of this project in the near future. Please contact me if
 you would like to discuss this.

 I saw some of your translations used in a program in Berkeley but they didn't show your name. A
 free concert, but still. I'll send you a copy if you like.

 I love this website, and I use it a lot! I'm a huge fan of Schubert Lieder and it's a great source
 of translations into various languages. But what has happened to the "browse" function? I find I
 can't browse by title or first line any more.

 A million thanks for maintaining this site!  As an amateur singer and music lover, it is so
 wonderful being able to search for lyrics for Lieder in so many different ways.  Thank you!

 To Justin: why do you assume something is trite if you don't know it?

 I am a singer and I haven't heard of most of these composers you list under the words to the
 songs. Is this website supposed to be for singers or for researchers into trite music rightfully
 forgotten? With all respect, if its for singers maybe you shouldn't make it so cluttered. The
 translations are sometimes hard to see too, you need to scroll right. And maybe you could make the
 page look a little nicer, its just too busy right now. Wonderful to have this resource, don't get
 me wrong, but you're turning off your audience.

Gentle Reminder
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 was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
