For a flat fee of £55.00 per submission, you can submit a single piece or group of pieces totaling no more than five minutes of music (excluding repeats). In return, you will receive a marked-up copy of your score(s), with detailed analysis and general comments on all aspects of your music: word-setting, melody, harmony, accompaniment, structure, liturgical usage, presentation. Feedback will be affirming and constructively critical. Fees for larger submissions can be quoted on request - please enquire by email to email@example.com.
It is a simple and straightforward process to submit your composition, which will be accepted either by post or email:
Once the standard flat fee payment of £55.00 has been received, we will send you an invoice and an application form for you to complete and submit with your piece(s). We will quote for larger pieces on an individual basis.
