  8. If a publisher is to be communicated an IndirectResourceContributors of type Music–Publisher shall be communicated.
  9. The ReferenceTitle of each SoundRecording shall denote the full title of a work. For instance in a CD of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with 12 tracks (each representing one movement of each of the four concerts), the ReferenceTitles of the first  SoundRecording would be “Concerto No. 1 in E major, Op. 8, RV 269, "La primavera" (Spring), 1. Allegro”. The precise syntax of the ReferenceTitles is left to the MessageSender and may (or may not include a sequence number). Note: The above only applies if the SoundRecording is based on a MusicalWorlk with a hierarchical title.
  10. 10. A GroupingTitle denoting the parent of each SoundRecording shall be communicated for each territorial variation if the SoundRecording is a MusicalWork that is part of a hierarchical Work. In the above example the Grouping Title for the first three SoundRecordings would be “Concerto for Violin and Strings in E-Major, Op. 8, No. 1, RV 296 ‘La Primavera’”. The precise syntax of GroupingTitles is left to the MessageSender
  11. A DisplayTitle should be communicated for each territorial variation. This title may be used to communicate concatenations of composer name, GroupingTitle and ReferenceTitle. The DisplayTitle may be omitted if the MessageSender does not want to communicate a specific title string for display purposes.
  12. ResourceGroups shall be used to communicate both work-related and carrier-related hierarchies. The former shall be indicated by providing a GroupingTitle and the latter by providing an un-typed Title. Work-related hierarchies shall only be provided for SoundRecordings that are based on a MusicalWork that is part of a hierarchical Work
  13. All other elements that are not technically mandatory may be omitted or, if provided, may be ignored by the recipient of the DDEX message. This specifically includes the use of work information in the MusicalWorkList composite.

    In the "multi- segment Works" case, it says "disk one containing one Work with three segments"... But it appears to only have one, Track 1 and Track 2.

    Also, it's not clear how, from that message, to determine that the ResourceGroup on the second disc represents the 1st Work. How would it be different if it were to represent the 2nd Work? From the GroupingTitle? That isn't really reliable, since the two works could have the same title, if for example, they were performed by different orchestras.
