A Very Warm Welcome to Westcountry Music!
ABOUT WESTCOUNTRY MUSIC LTD
Westcountry Music exists to promote the music of Andrew Goddard, either pieces he has arranged or written himself. A full catalogue is included on this site and you can print this off for your records.
Our pieces for piano, piano duet, flute and piano, clarinet and piano, organ and others are now being revised and will take a little time to complete. We are however just concentrating on choral works for the time being, for male voice, mixed voice and ladies choirs, together with various vocal solos and duets.
Please do not hesitate to contact us we are here to help you and your choir, and don't forget our discount of 10% from the cost of ALL sheet music purchased by choirs who are members of the National Association of Choirs, apart from the 'Christmas for Choirs' carol book series.
We do our very best to ensure that the pieces are well set out and clear, and we try to avoid awkward repeats to minimise what can sometimes be difficult page turning.
We have pieces in many varied styles, included sacred, secular, humorous, serious, romantic, inspirational, fast get up and go pieces, slower ballads and many more. We hope that you will be able to find pieces that your choir will enjoy performing. If not, please let us know what you are looking for by emailing Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
