Gretchen Gould's Choral Series

A relatively new area for Gretchen's creativity is Liturgical Musical Composition. Since joining the choir of the Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church in 2006, Gretchen has been writing anthems for the choir, as well as some treble compositions for another group directed by Polly James, the PUMC choir director. This endeavor has resulted in an already fairly large catalog of compositions which Gretchen would be willing to share with other choirs or soloists for a small fee, allowing those choir directors to xerox the number of copies needed for their groups. This is a rather unorthodox manner of publishing music and is intended simply as a means of sharing music which has been written to glorify God.
Anyone who is interested in reviewing any of the listed compositions should call Gretchen at:
(845) 485-2563 or write her at Gretchen Gould Choral Series, 71 Ferris Lane, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
