    Dear CMAA Fellow Members:

    Yesterday I took it upon myself to build the new publishing model which I had been praying and fasting about all through lent. I just launched the new site about an hour ago. I am reconnecting all the demonstration files to the Catalogue so that you can continue to preview and perhaps utilize some of the works in your endeavors. I owed a number of you different files, especially the Anima Christi.

    The new site is:

    http://www.RomanCatholicSacredMusic.com

    I have disconnected all the links that were on the pieces I had posted here. (Jeff, feel free to delete the individual posts of all the works if you are so inclined.)

    There are two publishing models that I am promoting. One is a PDF file with my own innovation, a 'Gratuitous Performance License', and the other is limited edition printed octavos (print on demand). You can learn all about the new publishing model by visiting the site.

    Thank you, one and all, for all your prayers and support, and for putting up with my madness in posting so many works here over the past few months.

    Sincerely in Christ,

    Francis Koerber

    Blessed be Jesus and Mary. May it be for all a small avenue of Praise, Proclamation and Propagation of our Roman Catholic faith which is alone found in them, and a token of my deepest gratitude for such a wonderful gift which they have bestowed on us, the glorious art of musica sacra.

    Francis,

    Congratulations: a nice site.

    Regards,

    Ian.

    ps You may prefer not to refer to it as RCSM.com, as someone else already has that domain. Also, it might be confused with the RSCM!
  • Lovely! Will look forward to much exploration therein, Francis. Congratulations and blessings.

    Hi Mary:

    Thank you for your encouragement and thank Incantu for the suggestion on bringing this one out on one of the posts here. I am so grateful to finally have a forum to share these musicks, as they have all sat in my storage room for 25 years with no one to appreciate or be interested in them.
