Spring sale – Paean scores
We have a couple of Paean: Chant & Triumph combo scores we’re looking to sell for $20 each. Please note these scores were created before the pieces were split into separate works, so measure numbers for Triumph may not coordinate with new parts (the music has not changed, however). This is a very inexpensive way to get both scores at the same time! Email Sarah to purchase.
