New Music is a series of specially commissioned pieces for choir or organ written by some of the most talented young composers around.
In every issue of Choir & Organ magazine, you’ll find a profile of the composer providing an insight into the new work. Here on the New Music web page you’ll find the score in PDF format ready to download to your printer.
Scores are licensed for six months’ free use – you can print as many copies as you want – before the copyright reverts to the composer. After that date, copies must be ordered from the composer.
New Music brings cutting-edge yet approachable scores direct to your desktop. We hope that you’ll be inspired to perform them as widely as possible. Why not download the latest score now?
For 2016, we are very happy to join forces with the music department of St Paul’s Cathedral, London, as our New Music partners. All the premieres of the four choral works and two organ pieces will be given at the Cathedral at times to be announced.
