In response to a number of recent requests to undertake instrumental arrangements of music composed by Philip Stopford and published by Hal Leonard, MorningStar Music and, please read the following statement from Philip.
I have decided, after carefully consideration of recent requests, that my existing policy regarding arrangements of my music, in any form, is unchanged. The works that I compose are a marriage of text and music; each is integral to and informs the other to create the choral music that so many of you enjoy listening to and performing. The process of composition for me has always begun with the words, and removing this element of the finished work is something I cannot currently conceive.
Arrangements of Philip’s music, either for instruments OR alternative voicings are not and have never been authorised.


Photocopying or otherwise reproducing Philip’s sheet music is illegal without the his express permission. Please ensure you order sufficient copies for your entire choir, or order additional copies in good time.
