Free Edition of Charles Gounod’s Le Crucifix
About three months ago I began working on a Creative Commons edition of Charles Gounod‘s a cappella choral work “Le Crucifix” with Richard Benefield, the music director Old First Presbyterian Church where I am the bass section leader.
Mr. Benefield edited the edition and I typeset it using Lilypond. Creating our own edition allowed us to typeset Richard’s original English translation directly into the score and had the side benefit of allowing us to release a high quality French edition into the Creative Commons.
