I have eight manuscript copies of this choral anthem by my father, Virgil T. Ford. These copies are free if you agree to pay the mailing charge. The size is 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2 “. Listen to the YouTube video and let me know if you are interested.
I have 8 file boxes full of single copies of choral sheet music. The files are organized in alphabetical order by composer. I have collected this music over my 30 years as a choir director. Most of the music is religious in nature as the bulk of my choir directing has been in churches. There is also a fair amount of music suitable for community choirs and more advanced choirs as I had some community and professional choirs as well.
I must ask that you please take all 8 boxes. No cherry picking. No returns. If you can’t use it. Throw it away or give it to someone else. If you live in King or Snohomish County, I can deliver it to you. Otherwise, you will have to make arrangements to meet with me at my studio to get them. Thanks Dorothy Harwood
Online rehearsals have had varying degrees of success but have been successful in bringing people together and maintaining a connection when it is currently very much needed … however, other things we are finding that musicians and singing groups are really interested in doing that brings them together as a group and keeps their interest sparked in music is Music Appreciation and Music Theory Classes. We’ve just had a choir sign up as a group for Music Appreciation from Canada and have had some great feedback from our ‘trial’ group… we’ve set it up so groups can book at a time that’s convenient to all of them and at whatever frequency they would like, ie, either weekly, bi-weekly, monthly etc. It’s £5 a session which can be paid per session or in blocks (our trial choir is weekly but the Canadian Choir wanted to be bi-weekly).
