FREE arrangements for choir

For choir: These are arrangements of existing (out-of-copyright) songs, and can be downloaded and used freely for non-profit performances. If the choir has a music budget, or if payment is being made for the performances, a payment of £15 / $25 per piece is requested (I can give a reduction if you order more than one, or if you order an original piece at the same time) – please email chris@hutchingsmusic.co.uk and I’ll send you a PDF personalised for your choir.
