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 2019, we are pleased to join forces with the Music Centre of the University of St Andrews 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.

Church of Saint Thomas, Fifth Avenue, New York

The Church of Saint Thomas is in the heart of downtown New York City. The Choir of Men and Boys has been consistently directed by eminent and influential organists, including Thomas Tertius Noble (who founded the Choir School in 1919), Gerre Hancock, John Scott, and now Daniel Hyde.

The Church has a reputation for music: each year, the Choir sings at nearly 200 choral worship services and special liturgies. Apart from services, it hosts a Concert Series of major choral-orchestral repertoire; an Organ Recital Series; and the Choir sings on tour and on recordings. The Church’s two organs by Taylor & Boody – the gallery organ and a continuo organ – will be joined in 2018 by a new instrument built by Dobson Pipe Organ Builders.


The premiere of Daniel Ficarri’s Exultation was given on 7 October during the service to dedicate the new Dobson organ at Saint Thomas, Fifth Avenue. Listen to the webcast here (the piece begins at 40:15).
