It is now possible for you to have a 'musical work' written especially for you or your choir.
Your arrangement or original composition can be individually tailored for your group’s particular strengths and weaknesses. All elements including range, key, style, mood and tempo can be specified. Imagine having your very own commissioned musical work to premiere.
Often, purchased sheet music is difficult to master for a variety of reasons. For example, you may have a wonderful Men's section but your Sopranos can't sing above a certain note. You may have soaring Sopranos who effortlessly reach the highest ranges but your Basses can't sing below a bottom G. With this option now available to you, we can make your choir sound even better by formatting the music to show off the characteristics of your finest voices. You can specify the range to be written for each unique section of your choir.
