Four sets of 3-step Wenger standing carpeted interlocking choral risers, with back safety rail available for sale. They fold up, but take up a good bit of room even when folded. Have mostly been in storage since purchase because of their bulky size, and many stairs in current location. They would be best suited for […]
I direct a mixed chorus of senior citizens and am looking for some good choral collections/octavos of folk music. Could be International or American folk music, as long as the arrangements are decent and not too difficult. (Intermediate-Early Advanced). Any suggestions? Many thanks.
Called “The Three Kings” I believe and the words begin “As December’s Frosty King went his way unwilling.” There is a Youtube video of Concordia Choir singing it, but no information on the arranger. I figure that if anyone can help me with this, it would be this forum. Thank you for any help you […]
I’m developing a program around these issues. The chorus is about 30 or so vounteers with a handful of pros. A cappella or organ accompaniment preferred (no piano.) Already on the program Poulenc, Un soir de neige; Stanhope, Exile Lamentations (3rd movement.) Any ideas appreciated!
I am planning a concert of opera choruses for which I’d like to use the Oxford Opera Choruses edited by John Rutter. I’ll need 70 copies or so. I’m reluctant to buy the books, as I’ll be programming only about a third of the pieces in the collection, and doubt I’ll be using the book […]
Hello friends, I’m doing an upcoming concert on composers who lived their lives in Vienna and I’d like to include “Veni Creator Spiritus” by Antonio Salieri. The challenge is that I can’t find a copy (much less instrument parts) anywhere. I’ve looked on CPDL, Bärenreiter, Carus, Schirmer, jwpepper, and sheetmusicplus (as well as the odd […]
I’m getting really excited about Copeland’s ‘In the Beginning’ and am considering programming it on an upcoming concert. But: what to program along with it?? I’m looking for another 20-30 minutes of a cappella music to go on this program. Bonus points if it’s thematically related and/or has a similar harmonic language to the Copeland. […]
I am looking for Dr. Linda Beth Jones., who edited Caldara’s Magnificat in C. I am trying to get hold of this edition, to conduct this piece from it. She wrote a doctorate thesis on the subject, advised by Prof. Dennis Shrock, who might have the edition (in a readable pdf version), or might know […]
Do the customary copyright rules apply to a piece of music that is “permanently out of print,” as stated by the publisher? Thank you!
Hi everyone! I’ve been appointed as a new director for a chorus and we are preparing to do Haydn’s The Seasons. I was wondering if anyone had thought about scores: paid, rented, IMSLP (there is a version that has all the parts). Has anyone done this piece before and has recommendations?
