Submissions

  • We welcome submissions from all composers, and are actively seeking to partner with underrepresented voices in the choral field, particularly people of color and women, as we expand our catalog.
  • It may be helpful to familiarize yourself with our catalog (particularly our current New Issues) to see the level of music we generally publish. However, we are always open to new directions, and our focus is more on artistic excellence in a style than any particular style itself. Our catalog's "style" is defined by what we choose to publish, not vice versa, and is always evolving.
  • We publish only full settings/arrangements, not melody sheets or un-arranged songs/hymns. (Our limited publications of congregational songsheets are always derived from already-published choral anthems). 
  • Please submit only 1-2 pieces, representing your best work. We publish a very limited number of pieces each year, that we believe can "rise to the top" of the crowded sheet music market.
  • Please send each piece to only one publisher at a time. (Standard practice in the print music industry).
  • Audio MP3's are NOT necessary. Please only send a recording if it is particularly well-done performance (no digital mockups).
  • We make every effort to review submissions in a timely manner. However, due to our small-staff approach and our twice-yearly production schedule, it may take 2-5 months for the review process. Thank you for your patience.

Submissions are also accepted by mail to the addresses below; please include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you wish for the music to be returned to you.
