    Hi I am wondering if the Parish Book of Motets is mostly SATB, or does it have SAB and SA arrangements? I take it there is no piano reduction in the choral edition. I have a tiny women's schola at present. Thanks for any info.

    --I believe they're mostly (or entirely?) SATB works
    --Piano reductions are available on the website here: https://www.churchmusicassociation.org/pbm1/
    --If you have a tiny schola, consider using Rossini's Canticum Novum which is exclusively accompanied 2-part music

    There is a TON of good 2-part music out there. For instance, much of this is for 2 equal voices.https://imslp.org/wiki/Melodie_sacre_(Perosi,_Lorenzo)

    Also, the PBM piano reductions are available in print as a companion to the choral book. See shop.musicasacra.com.

    Jeffrey, I have to thank you for pointing me to Perosi. There are a bunch of gems in that (enormous) collection. I've already put two in front of my choir just this past week, and plan to do a number more. Thanks for this!
