    Hi Dave,

    The edition I used has the Allegro: Propter magnam as a separate movement, so you will find what you are looking for under 5 Propter magnam gloriam.

    Cheers,

    I meant to add: on receipt of requests, I invariably give a guide to how long it may take before I can get the relevent files prepared. If I do go past the time, then by all means contact me. There can be a number of valid reasons for me falling behind a delivery date; and there is this embarrassing one where I completely messed things up by mis-filing the request. So do contact me straightaway if a date comes and goes without me fulfilling the request.

    Cheers,

    Hi Linda,

    My apologies. Yes, my filing system has let me down here. I have those emails (in the wrong folder….), so I will get on with these later today.

    I have nothing more that I can add. Let’s hope someone else more knowledgeable comes along to shed light on the matter.

    Hi Philip,

    All I can say is that my version follows the First Edition published by N. Simrock in about 1880. It is freely availabel on IMSLP.

    Update on my post of 17 October 2019

    My web hosts and I have been carrying out various processes to put a stop to the periods of downtime caused by malicious bruteforce attacks on this site.

    You may have noticed the pesky reCaptcha system, asking you to click in the box to prove you are not a robot. I have given it a fair trial, and it definitely did the job, but in my opinion it proved too intrusive; it got in the way of what is supposed be an enjoyable experience of learning your parts.

    So I have shown it the door. Instead we have installed something which is invisible to the human eye, but not to those mischievous robots who, once they have seen it, are unceremoniously dismissed before they get the chance to do harm.

    The slight downside, which we are working on, is that, together with the other security measures we have put in place, there is an increased chance that you get logged out much more often than you should. We are working on a solution, but I hope that you will be patient with us, and agree that the downside of having to login slightly more often is preferable to having the site down for 2-3 hours per day.

    Hi Patsy,

    There was a major upgrade to the Group Accounts system a couple of days ago, and little gremlin has crept in. I am awaiting instructions from my developers, but I have adjusted something in your group account, such that I hope that it works now.

    Please let me know if it doesn’t

    Hi Janet,

    This is a public forum, so I won’t get into discussions about your registration here. Also, I cannot positively identify you from your name alone.

    But I suspect your email provider is being extra vigilant and keeping the emails from my website in your account on their website. They will have decided, because you may not have received emails from my site before, that I am a vicious spammer whose emails don’t deserve to be delivered to you.

    I kind member researched this and has put together some instructions on his choir’s website to ensure that your email provider will pass on your emails: click on the “NON-RECEIPT OF EMAILS” link which you will see on the right-hand side of all my pages. These instructions refer to BT addresses, but apply equally to many other email providers.

    I suspect you will find your verification email in your spam/junk mailbox in your account there.

    If this isn’t the case, email me directly to my mac address: john_fletcher(at)mac(dot)com – replacing (at) with the @ character, and (dot) with the full-stop (period).

    It is still worth adding my two addresses to the Safe Addresses list in your account on your email provider’s website, for if you ever need to do a password reset, you would want to receive the response in you own Inbox on your computer

    Good news to report:

    My web hosts have (hopefully) discovered the cause of this. It appears my site has been suffering what is called a bruteforce attack, executed by malicious-minded people whose purpose is to slow sites down. They do this by creating a program which targets login pages, and bombards that page with false logins. I have some security software which helps prevent this, as long it’s coming from the same computer, but these people have devised a way to make it look as though the computer is changing every minute or so.

    So I have been advised to put something called reCaptcha on the login page, where it requires you to tick a box to say that you are not a robot. A small price to pay, but my site is working super fast this afternoon. You shouldn’t need to restrict yourself to mornings… unless these people work out how to click a box…

    Cheers,
    JohnF

    I can’t see/hear anything wrong with the Dvorak. It plays fine here. Mind you, it’s now after 7pm in the evening…
