See and Hear the Music!
I imagine you're a discriminating musician searching for good
music. It's a jungle out there! More composers are writing
today than all those combined from prior generations. Some publishers
continue to publish fine choral music, but many are driven by
marketing pressures and consumer demands. We all experience the
frustration of looking through hundreds of new releases, hoping to
find one or two useable pieces of music....
From the composer's perspective, those who seek to write
well-crafted, quality music often find their efforts to publish
difficult. A piece might not earn enough "bucks" to
justify publication, or there are too many composers out there
clamoring to get their foot in the door. Many of us find we
must spread our publications among many publishers, unable to
maintain a clear profile for our music....
Music-engraving software, computer technology, and the internet
have created a new age for the dissemination of a composer's music!
Now a "cyber-place" can be established, a dynamic
online catalogue where music can be thoroughly reviewed, a
"one-stop shopping" experience....
For these reasons, I've created Gladde
Music Publications - not a traditional
publisher, but an all-inclusive "umbrella" where all of my published
choral music can be found, along with my self-published
works and recently completed titles. Here, you
can see and hear all of my choral
selections. At your convenience, you can order copies from
a specific publisher or from your favorite
music supplier. If the music has a GMP catalogue number,
please order directly from me - -
