Choral works

 

The following choral pieces were arranged or composed by Tim Brace. Many of them are free of charge. Just click on the title to download the full score. Those pieces accompanied by an "Add to Cart" button can be downloaded but are incomplete. To receive a complete and printable version, send me a check or money order (US$) - or use PayPal if available below. I will then send you a printable copy in PDF as an email attachment or on hardcopy via the postal service.  If you pay by check or money order, send it to Magnolia Arts, 800 W. 38th St Apt 2310, Austin, Tx 78705 (USA). Be sure to tell me which piece(s) you are purchasing. I think you will find my prices quite reasonable.

Tim Brace retains all rights of publication and all relevant copyrights. It is a violation of these rights to distribute copies of any of these pieces. For any piece that you download, free or not, you may make an appropriate number of copies for your own use only. These files usually look better printed out than they do on your monitor. If you think others would be interested in these pieces, please direct them to this website.

Some pieces have links to downloadable audio files. These are midi files; they are offered to give you an idea of the arrangement; keep in mind that they are products of a computer, not of performers.

All of these pieces are suitable for any sized choir; my choir is 10-15 with no trained singers, so all of these pieces have very singable ranges, nothing above an F for the soprano and tenor sections and nothing above a G for soloists.

Please revisit this site regularly. New pieces are being added all the time. The last piece added was "And I Will Use My Life to Praise Your Name" in February, 2007
