A chorus (life)line

Westminster Music Library is pleased to announce the launch of our new vocal set hire service! Modelled on our hugely popular orchestral set hire service, our newly-expanded collection of vocal sets is just as impressive, and launches in the wake of our very own community choir project.

Joint Force Singers definitely benefited from access to our choral set collection over the duration of the project; covering as it does such a wide variety of styles, levels and genres from classical to folk, popular to jazz, there was no excuse for our Musical Director not to find something suitable for concert programmes to impress audiences.

Browsing through the catalogue brings up lots of the classics like Bach’s Magnificat and Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, many of which are available in a number of different editions. More unique and sometimes obscure works by lots of the great composers can also be found; highlights include dozens of part-songs for chamber choirs by Elgar, Holst and Vaughan Williams.  But you’ll also find carols, nursery songs, madrigals, humorous songs, folk songs and pop songs all well-represented, available in multiple copies and at extremely competitive rates.

Ever thought about forming a barbershop quartet or a rock choir but don’t know where to find the music? Or perhaps you’re just stuck for ideas of what to perform next with your choir. All of our vocal sets are individually catalogued and available to browse on our catalogue:

We have over 800 performance sets available for all sizes and styles of choir – the perfect song or larger work for your choir will be in there somewhere, and our knowledgeable library staff can offer advice and will even help you choose.

Most of us know there are lots of well documented health benefits in singing with a choir, and on top of that you’re bound to make a whole bunch of new friends. So what are you waiting for, if you’re the librarian or the choir master, or even forming a brand new choir, why not pay us a visit?
