Widor Mass

Hi. Does anyone know where I might borrow/hire copies of the Widor Mass for 2 choirs/organs? I've inherited a choral society in south west UK intent on doing it and they're having trouble sourcing vocal scores via libraries. Any leads gratefully received.

 

Thanks

We did it a few years ago, and we certainly had hire copies; I wasn't librarian then, but I'll ask my predecessor where they came from.

By two choirs, do you mean one choir plus men? We did it a few years ago at Ely at the MMA conference, but I have a feeling we all bought copies.

Yes, Messe a deux choeurs et deux orgues Op. 36 (mens' chorus being originally the 200 seminarians attached to St-Sulpice!).

I did it with Swindon Choral Society last year. They used hire copies.

 

- Supplied the 2nd organ too.

 

.....and unloaded it, drove the van, set it up, played it, loaded it up again, and took it home again afterward

 

..........long day!
