MUSIC FOR CHOIRS

The SAB arrangements on this page are repertoire I have developed for community choirs, challenging and interesting for inexperienced singers but not too difficult. The rest is music for conventional forces, many commissioned by choral societies.

Purchasing music is through a licence to copy my music. You pay for each copy you make and all licensed copies are engraved with your choir name.
We offer a 10% discount on orders over 10 and 15% on orders over 30.
Contact me with details of your choir/organisation and the number of copies you want to make and I will be more than happy to provide you with the appropriate licence and master copy. Payment can be made through bank transfer or PayPal.
