Please remember the purpose of our catalog. We want to provide information to performers
about works that are not available through traditional distribution channels. This would
include mostly self-published works, but also standard works in unusual editions or
arrangements, or obscure works by standard composers. Let's not duplicate resources that are
available in print.
Finally (composers take note), kindly show restraint in your postings to truly notable works.
This catalog can become unwieldly very quickly, so we must not overload it. You'll find an
ASCII Template which you can fill in here if you are using e-mail.
- Instrumentation: including soloists, chorus, narrator, etc.
- Comments: such as style, appropriateness for certain
occasions, ensembles, etc. This entry forms the soul of the catalog.
- Sources: Location and availability of scores, parts, and
tapes. Include snail mail and/or email addresses, phone numbers, FTP
or Web sites.
- Extras:You may also include MIDI files and/or GIFs of selected pages,
if available; please, no sound files (they take up too much storage space)
- History: Performance history if available (who commissioned it,
other performances, reviews, etc.) and/or selected program notes
- Contributor: Please conclude each entry with your name, email address, title, and
affiliation. In this way others can read your comments in the context of your background, and
can write you for further information.
In addition to the above, please indicate one of the following terms
for the difficulty level and size of orchestra for your piece.
This will be used to make sure we sort your piece according to your wishes
on our web pages that list works by forces required and also difficulty.
For size of forces, please indicate either "small", "med" or "large".
For difficulty, please indicate "easy", "med", or "hard".
For our purposes, small orchestra is defined as chamber orchestra,
string orchestra, or perhaps a larger orchestra with single winds and a
small number of other instruments. Medium Orchestra should be
playable by a standard classical orchestra, usually with double winds and
not many extras. Full Orchestra might have triple winds in some
sections, large percussion section, harp, piano, and/or more unusual
