      Description

      @toddobryan asked on the IRC chat https://webchat.freenode.net/#musicbrainz,metabrainz

      "Does anyone know what the rule is for putting in Roman numeral movement numbers in classical works?" for work https://musicbrainz.org/work/696ea26e-f2aa-4bed-928e-2b321ec05b17

      What we discussed in the IRC chat is in the attachments linked in this issue. We looked through here: https://wiki.musicbrainz.org/History_talk:Classical_Style_Guide#Use_of_I.2C_II_etc._should_be_restricted_to_works_with_movements

      and other previous formats ie. Moonlight Sonata. The parts are in Roman Numeral and so is the composer. Is this the correct style/ formatting? This might be a good idea to add to the works guideline somewhere if it isn't there.
