New Music

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 2017, we are pleased to join forces with Royal Holloway, University of London, as our New Music partners. All the premieres of the four choral works and two organ pieces will be given at times and venues to be announced.

Directed by Rupert Gough, the Choir of Royal Holloway is considered to be one of the finest mixed-voice collegiate choirs in Britain. Comprising 24 choral scholars, the choir gives around 50 concerts a year with a particular specialism in music from the late renaissance and contemporary music, especially from the Baltic States. Their busy schedule also includes weekly services, international tours, recordings and broadcasts. Members benefit from a unique training programme in collaboration with The King’s Singers – Royal Holloway’s Ensemble in Residence.

Many new works have been composed for the choir as it continues to enjoy close collaborations with living composers, including Carson Cooman, James MacMillan, Gabriel Jackson and Richard Rodney Bennett.

The Choir is supported by two organ scholars and a choral administrator, and is represented by Edition Peters Artist Management.;
