Music for hire

The choir is still operating but as a virtual choir for the time being.  There are two on-line rehearsals each week.

We have a wide range of compendia and sheet music to hire as listed below.  Please email etcetera@civilservicechoir.org.uk and we shall advise on the hire price and availability.  However, we do not currently have access to our stock and so for the time being are unable to supply any scores.
