Welcome to Westcountry Music
Please note we will be unable to process any orders or answer any queries during the period 10th to 27th July 2014.
We sincerely apologise if this causes any inconvenience./strong>
Welcome to the Westcountry Music website. A full catalogue is included and pieces can be purchased online. Items are normally sent with an invoice and we ask that payments are made within fourteen days. We do not currently accept credit or debit card payments and orders from outside of the UK can be paid for via Paypal.
Westcountry Music Ltd is now concentrating on choral music for mixed voice, male voice or ladies choirs. We aim to be one of the market leaders in music for choirs and to this end we are currently in the process of revitalising our website, and nearly sixty new pieces have recently been added to our catalogue, with many more to follow. Look out for the Whats New button above for the latest information!
There are further improvements planned for the website and these will be implemented as soon as we can. When completed, you will be able to see and listen to excerpts of the pieces at the same time, so watch this space!
Apart from the Christmas for Choirs carol book series we will allow a discount of 10% from orders received from Choirs that are members of the National Association of Choirs. To obtain this discount, the music must be ordered from us, either through this website, or by post, or by telephone or fax on 01392 421966. If it is not possible for us to answer a call, please leave your name and telephone number on the answer-phone and we will return your call as soon as possible.
We do our best to ensure that our music copies are clear, straightforward, free from errors and easy to follow, and we try to avoid repeats where we can, to limit what can be awkward page turning.
We also try to keep the price of our music as low as reasonably possible as we realise only too well the impact the current economic climate has on everyone. Postage is included in the price of the music other than in respect of the Christmas for Choirs carol book series.
Our choir pieces start from only £1.20 per copy which we feel is very competitive, and that is before any discount is applied.
We are continuing to expand our catalogue and we feel sure you will find several pieces of interest to your particular choir. If you are looking for a piece that is not in our catalogue it may well be possible for it to be arranged for your choir. Just let us know and we will see what we can do, subject always to copyright approval, where appropriate.
We have pieces that are sacred, secular, humorous, serious, inspirational, fast get up and go pieces, slower ballads, and so much more.
Please do not hesitate to contact us as we are here to help you and your choir.
