Antonio Caldara - Stabat Mater
[glow=red,2,300]Please[/glow] has anyone got a nwc file of Antonio Caldara's Stabat Mater?  I've completely failed to find it on the www.  Our choir's doing it and I want to prepare some part-enhanced files for practice purposes.  [glow=red,2,300]Many thanks![/glow]

Found this: http://nwcchorus.free.fr/database1.htm
which lists the filename as: caldara_stabat_mater.nwc
but the link is broken

The above is an orphed page from:
NoteWorthy Composer - Registered User Music Pages
under Bands/Chorus/Groups:
but all the links are broken. The site looks to be abandoned.

Fortunately, some kind soul has archived it:

I downloaded it. It seems to be what you are looking for.

Many thanks, Rick,
I'm really grateful to you for your help.  Now I can get on with preparing the files.  As a matter of interest, how did you find the files?  I tried on google, but maybe I put the wrong search criteria.

As a matter of interest, how did you find the files?
1st, I googled:
  • caldara stabat mater nwc
that yielded: http://nwcchorus.free.fr/database1.htm

The link on that page to Sabat Mater: http://nwcchorus.free.fr/data/caldara_stabat_mater.nwc
led to a 404 Error, so I googled:
  • caldara_stabat_mater
that led to: http://jiceka50.free.fr/html/Sons/Stabatmater/

Of course, I tried a few things that didn't work.

database1.htm looked familiar. I thought I had gotten there some years ago via NWC's User Pages. Sure enough, I had.

Many thanks, once more, Rick,
I'm very grateful.  I must try using hyphens next time I'm searching, I never thought of that before.

Not hypens, underscores

The broken link indicated that the file was named: caldara_stabat_mater.nwc
so I figured that a search for the "word': caldara_stabat_mater
ought not result in a large of hits and might find the file in an active link.
I got lucky on both counts.

You have to love the speed of Google. It now shows a hit on this topic!

Ooops!!  Yes, underscore. Always getting those mixed up.  And yes, Google is amazing!  I think this is the first time I failed to find something, but as you showed, it was there all the time, waiting for some underscores!
