Usage

Parameters

The template is very general and therefore offers a great choice of parameters. For a given composition, use only those of relevance, look first if the subset covers them. Parameters can be entered in several ways, to make the template consistent with other usages, for example parameters can be entered capital or lowercase. For multiple occurrences of a parameter, use {{flatlist}} or {{plainlist}}.

Additional parameters

  • |list_title= - use in place of 'name' if infobox is used in list article
  • |subtitle= subtitle, appears right below the title[further explanation needed]

  • |style= style of the composition, such as "Free atonality"
  • |related= related works, such a different version, a use in a later composition

  • |based_on= for example the theme for variations, or a paraphrase
  • |meter= poetic meter

Image use

|image= may be useful for an image related to the composition, of an autograph manuscript, original printed edition or similar item, the composer, a dedicatee, a place of first performance, you name it. Please use it only if a free (public domain) illustration is available. Since musical compositions are not normally perceived primarily through their written form by the wider public, the visual presence of the written page does not have the same identifying function as it has for books, audio media or similar releases. Therefore, there will not normally be a good justification for including a non-free title page illustration under WP:NFC, as is typically done with such items.

For the same reason, including a non-free title page of an audio recording of the composition in question will also typically be excluded, because in the classical music tradition, no individual audio recording normally has any privileged status in representing the original composition. This may be different, however, for "official" premiere recordings of contemporary works.

This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
Subtemplates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{start date}} (or, where appropriate, {{start date and age}}) is used in a parent infobox/template. Do not, however, use {{start date}} or {{start date and age}} if a date before 1583 CE is involved.

Use {{duration}} to specify the duration/length of a recording. For instance, if the recording's duration is 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{duration|m=3|s=45}} (which appears as: 3:45). If needed, |h= may be included to specify a number of hours.
