"Best of" PD Music
Date: November 29, 2013
Hello, world! A couple years ago, a colleague of mine had what I considered to be a great idea -- to see what kinds of "treasures" exist in places like CPDL and IMSLP. I know there's plenty of music at these sites, and I also realize the "touchiness" of phrases like "Public Domain" and "Copyright." Let's discuss what you've found -- especially those that are, for lack of a better word, legal.
My question for you is this: what are some of the "gems" you've found on these sites? The criteria for this question includes pieces you judge to have artistic merit, "singability" (or ease of learning), and how appealing they are to you and your students.
We've all found pieces that we just love and our students just love to hate (and vice versa). I'm interested in hearing what you've found that sounded nice -- and may even have been fun to learn!
