Choir music – sacred music for any time of year

To order any music on this page, email and give your choir name and which pieces you would like to order.
I prefer to send you a PDF so that you can print your own copies (a flat rate to print as many copies as you want; I’ll email you the PDF and an invoice), or you can order individual copies (in which case I will send you an invoice for payment in advance, and then print and post the copies).

This page needs a lot of updating – in the meantime, please see the pages for each type of choir as follows:
Medium SATB
Difficult SATB
SATB accompanied
Children’s choirs or unison voices
Upper voices
Lower voices
or by type of music:
Chamber music and solo works
