Scores for works on Lucrezia Borgia’s Daughter

We are selling these scores on a licensing system, based on one used for many years by our colleagues, Fretwork Publishing (for which we are very grateful!) We ask the purchaser to state the purpose for which the music is required, in order to determine a fair price and to protect of copyright. If a single copy is required for personal use, we ask the purchaser to sign an agreement licensing the printing of a single copy of the file with an undertaking not to pass the file on to others. If multiple copies will be required, we calculate a figure which is a multiple of the same unit price but discounted according to quantity, and the license agreement states the agreed number of copies that may be printed.

This has proved to be a useful and economic way for choirs to purchase repertoire (and of course, there is also no postage to pay on digital publications). The system obviously depends on good faith, but has proved a successful way of highlighting and protecting copyright, which is at greater risk in digital publishing.

We are also asking that, if you record or perform these works in a public place that has a license from your location’s relevant performing rights organisation, you make sure the venue or the promoter notifies them properly.  There is no additional cost to performers for this!!

How the pricing works

You can work out the cost of your score using the tables below.

For example: Haec Dies

  • 20-voice choir = £60 ( £3.75 x 20 – 20% discount) + cost for organ/viol
  • 50-voice choir = £121.88 (£3.75 x 50 -35% discount) + cost for organ/viol

About Musica Secreta

Background

Sarah Dunant and Deborah RobertsFor twenty years, Musica Secreta – co-directors Deborah Roberts and Laurie Stras – has been at the forefront of the discovery and interpretation of music for and by early modern women.
We bring together internationally-acclaimed musicians and ground-breaking research to perform this fascinating and continually emerging repertoire.

Our programmes illustrate the many faces of women musicians in the 16th and 17th centuries: courtiers, courtesans, actresses and cloistered nuns. There is always an element of story-telling, theatre, and surprise, in our performances, for the women who first made our music had lives as compelling as the music itself.

Workshops & info for choirs

Al fresco workshop in Triora

Al fresco workshop in Triora

With many years’ experience as both performers and coaches, Deborah and Laurie have gained an international reputation for their imaginative and informative workshops.

Always challenging and exciting, the topics reflect their intimate knowledge of the Renaissance and early Baroque repertoires. Whether Old World or New, polyphony or chant, Deborah and Laurie (together or individually) can help your choir venture into new territory and introduce you to some fabulous music. Single sessions, days or weekends can be devised to suit your choir’s interests.

For those looking to expand their horizons even further, Deborah also runs occasional workshops, combined with a delicious short break away, at her home in Triora, a small town nestled in the mountains on the Ligurian coast, close to the Italian border with France. Visit the Triora Musica website for details of early music courses for singers and instrumentalists;  there is more information and photos on our Musica Secreta in Triora page.
