Schirmer, Inc., Harold Flammer, Inc., Carl Fischer, Inc., Broadman Press and Lorenz Publishing Co. I have slowly been going through his filing cabinet and have compiled a […]
I would really like to program Ariel Ramirez’s Mis criolla this season with the Cincinnati Boychoir. Does anyone have scores that I could borrow? I (and my ED and our budget!) would really appreciate it!
In my memory there is an “Ave Maria” that I have heard sung by a treble choir, but I can’t for the life of me find this specific one. It is an arrangement where the only lyrics in the piece are Ave Maria, and it was primarily in mixed meter. If my memory serves me […]

Hello, I am looking for something composed by a woman and written for chorus and orchestra/chamber orchestra. Between 20-30 mins. I have done some research, but the works I find are atonal and uninspiring stuff written in the 1950s-70s. Can anyone suggest something that is worth listening to? Living composers are a Plus.

Hello friends! I am looking to know if brass quintet arrangements exist out in the world somewhere for any portion of the final movement of the Beethoven 9th symphony. And I’m looking for any transcription of the Pinkham Christmas Cantata for a single brass quintet or quartet as opposed to the double brass choir that […]
