Tony Price Posted February 2, 2011 Share Posted February 2, 2011 With a Choir that has been running for many years, and with over 40 members, we have built up a huge archive of music. This is currently housed in three odd, but large, cupboards and four four-drawer filing cabinets. All are at the back of the large (seats 60+) choir gallery, and all are completely stuffed full of music! I have been offered the funding to have some purpose-built storage cupboards made, to be more in keeping with the church and more practical to use, and have approached three manufacturers to have plans and costings established. My main difficulty is not the shells of the new storage cupboards, but how to file the music within them. I found Musicity.com in the USA, and have ordered their "Sampler 6 Pack" of storage boxes, which include three sizes of Octavo box. However, at a whopping £47 including shipping for just these six boxes, I feel this route will eventually turn out to be a step too far in terms of final cost, given the number of boxes we will likely need. Does anyone here know of a UK-based manufacturer who may be able to help with practical storage solutions for a large archive of sheet music sets? Or has anyone any useful suggestions as to how best to approach the 'problem'? Many thanks in advance for any useful thoughts that might help resolve a rather nice problem to have!
