These editions/engravings are byproducts of a rewarding choral career. Curiosity for literature inspired by the joy of finding overlooked or forgotten musical gems resulted in an appreciable score collection, especially of literature long out of print. The collection displays a passion for British music and a love for unaccompanied singing. Many of these scores have been out of print nearly a century or more and have fallen into the public domain in the U.S. These editions have been created from this collection and from other original sources in the public domain, following the principles of U.S. copyright law. None have been created from recent editions currently under copyright or from new editions found on public domain music websites, respectful of work by others undertaking similar projects.
These editions are made available as a service to the choral community, recalling music often neglected or forgotten. With choral organizations facing continual financial challenges, these scores are intended to allow choirs greater programming flexibility by providing music with little cost. This frees resources to afford published music under copyright and in print, especially newly composed. This service can help a choir purchase music that otherwise seemed too expensive or resist the temptation to illegally photocopy those extra copies.
