Choral Newsletter June 2019

June 8, 2019

Dear choral friends,

Does June bring an end to your choral season? Or, like me, are you embarking on an exciting summer tour? Perhaps you are part of a festival like Unisong Choral Festival, which Ottawa welcomes this year and culminates in a mass choir performance on the National Arts Centre stage on Canada Day. However you are spending your summer months, we hope you can find some time to enjoy more choral music!



Top 10 lists – Donald Patriquin

Our Guide to Choral Music Repertoire includes an ever-growing section of Top 10 Recommendations from our community of choral directors and composers.  With Canada Day fast approaching, we want to highlight the list curated by popular Canadian composer Donald Patriquin, which includes both original compositions and arrangements of Canadian folksongs. Did you know that The Leading Note is Patriquin’s exclusive Canadian distributor for his A Tempo works?

Even More Resources!

We are constantly adding new titles to our online store and trying to include sample pages and sample audio, wherever possible. An excellent resource being developed by some of our publishing partners is a series of YouTube videos which combine the two.  These videos flip through the pages of the score, synchronized to the audio so that you can both hear and see the music.  Here is a list of titles on our website that can be viewed this way.  Be sure to make the video full screen for best results!
