Renaming categories[edit]

On 1 September I posted here drawing attention to a proposal to rename a lot of categories relating to classical music. My post is now archived here. The proposal to rename the categories was rejected at the time, but it has now been made again, so I would encourage anyone to express an interest here. Thank you! -- (talk) 00:44, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Table at List of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach[edit]

I posted a proposal to revamp the huge table of List of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach at Talk:List of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach#Size reduction proposal, and would like input on that: please post your comments at Talk:List of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach#Discussion (Size reduction proposal). Thanks. --Francis Schonken (talk) 07:13, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Issues at Talk:List of compositions by Claude Debussy[edit]

Would love some input on the pair of issues brought up about this list. ♫ Melodia Chaconne ♫ (talk) 13:57, 8 November 2019 (UTC)


Is Missa 1733 a generic title, or not, then Missa 1733. I read the MoS, but am not sure. I am sure that Missa in B minor would be generic, and that Missa angelica not. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:42, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Titles#Italics has this example:
Modified for the BWV 232 I (early version) situation the example could as well read like this:
  • ... 1733 version of Missa, BWV 232 I ... also referred to as Missa 1733 ... (generic vs. non-generic name)
(the layout was copied as is in the 3rd paragraph of the intro of that article). I hope that answers your question. --Francis Schonken (talk) 14:03, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
It does, thank you. That's what I thought, even. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:19, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
