PLACING AN ORDER Customers living in the United States are now able to order music directly on-line! Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button underneath any item you wish to purchase, and you will be taken to a page where you can select the quantity you desire. From there you have the option to "Continue Shopping" or to "Proceed to Checkout." Customers may pay using a PayPal account if they wish, or they may pay with a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover) . Simply enter in the information as instructed. This method of purchasing music is only for customers living in the United States. Please keep in mind that we print-to-order for most things in our catalog, so add 2-3 business days to the estimated shipping time.
Customers not living in the United States
Due to exorbitant shipping costs, customers who do not live in the United States have the option of purchasing a license-to-copy once they have perused and selected the scores they would like to perform. Please send us an inquiry to

Perusal Scores †
In that this catalog contains repertoire and composers who may not be familiar to most choral conductors, we are happy to provide you with perusal scores. Because we are a small company, providing free perusal scores to the huge choral market is not fiscally possible at this time. Customers may request up to 15 perusal scores each month. An invoice will be sent for each set of perusal scores ordered. If, upon examination, a customer is not interested in performing the music, the scores may returned within 30 days of delivery for full credit with YRM. For orders of individual scores greater than 15 in quantity, full payment must be made without credit for returned items. We ask that you observe the Federal Copyright Laws and not photocopy the perusal scores. Doing so will ultimately drive up the price of the music and rob royalties from the copyright owners. Please note: Because we offer perusal scores to help choruses decide on programming, ALL SALES OF MULTIPLE SCORES ARE FINAL.
