NDC Editions, Inc. was founded in 1999 to furnish choral singers with reliable, reasonably priced editions of significant and attractive a cappella motets drawn from the lesser-known areas of the sacred choral music repertory. Appearing under the imprint Notre Dame Choir Editions, the catalog features polyphonic motets from the early to late Renaissance that have not been published before, or have appeared in editions that are relatively inaccessible, cost prohibitive or difficult for modern performers to use. Each composition has been chosen for its intrinsic beauty, singability, and usefulness in a liturgical context.
The scores balance the demands of historically informed scholarship with practical considerations for the non-specialist mixed-voice choir. This modern approach to the presentation of the musical texts stems from our experience rehearsing and performing Renaissance polyphony with moderately experienced amateur and semi-professional choral groups.
Notre Dame Choir Editions are distributed exclusively by C. F. Peters Corporation of New York and Peters Edition Limited of London.
