Dear List Members:

Thanks to all on Choral Academe and ChoralTalk who responded to a request
for a 3-5 minute work, preferably secular, for SATB chorus/organ
and/or brass to celebrate the inauguration of a new college president. If
after seeing the compilation below other titles come to mind, please send
them to me so they can be added to the list.

Best wishes to all.
Monica Hubbard
