Choir Directors: For the prices
mentioned above, I can either mail you a full score and vocal score of the
piece, created exquisitely on Finale... with the understanding that you can
make as many copies as necessary for performance in your group.
I know, some of you may not have much of a budget
for buying new music, and I do prefer my music being performed than not.
If you have the temerity to plead absolute poverty, I could send it for postage
and handling... but I am trying to make a living here, so do what you feel
I always want to be informed when my pieces
are being performed, both for personal gratification, and because ASCAP gives
me more money when there are more performances anywhere. Also, I would like
a copy of any recordings you can make of my pieces.
these pieces would not exist if certain choirs did not have the decency and
initiative to commission me to write them. For a reasonable price you can
have a great new piece written especially for your group, with exclusive
performing rights for a year! (And if your choir has a website, and either
performs or commissions a piece of mine, I will put a link to you from
Vern for any of these purposes.
