Answering a couple of questions that have come in via PM:

* All copies available are the hand-held size vocal scores.

* Every copy of each selection is complete and in very good condition. Most are brand new, having been extra copies from when my groups performed these. A few may have pencil-marked reminders here and there.

* I would like to get a small donation for my time (maybe $10) in packing up any of these and mailing them, plus whatever actual postage costs. I would need to get more for Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms.

Thanks.

Here is a wrinkle about which I had not thought => A vocal conductor/teacher asked for one copy of each, so that she might review a veriety of scores before ordering parts for her organization.

While I did not want to reduce the count of parts for each piece by 1, it was such a great idea that we did it!

Anyone else working with highly-skilled or semi-pro groups?

Can I backup ed here?

He's wonderful and all the scores I've received from him are in excellent condition. I can't take any more scores off his hands, but I think that all would benefit from grabbing some/few/all of his scores here! ^_^
