Contacting George Silvis of Silvis Woodshed

Postby Seasidesingers » 18 Aug 2012 07:08

Since many people interested in choral music also go to the Silvis Woodshed site, I wonder if anyone has some current information about how to contact George Silvis. His address on the website is not valid. I have a question about a piece that is listed without a composer or arranger, and I would like to locate the lyrics so my chorus could sing it. I can reconstruct the score using Sibelius software, but would like to find the lyrics.
The piece is called Bell Carol. http://gasilvis.net/mids/xmas/bellcaro.mid An internet search gets a zillion links to the famous Ukranian Carol of the Bells, but not this piece.

Hi, this is the Bell Carol, by William Mathias. You can listen to a recording on this link:

You can buy the score from Sheet Music Plus. If you decide to do so, please use the link below (CPDL will receive a small commission from them):

Thanks for the information. After I posted this, I checked the Choral net society, found it on a repertoire list, got the composer's name, and was able to track it down on both Sheet Music plus and Classical Archives. Never fails--when i put out a call for help after futile attempts, I finally get the answer myself shortly thereafter. I didn't need 6 copies, so I ordered it from J. Pepper where I could get a single copy. But if I decide to order multiple copies for the group, I will order it through the CPDL website so it gets the commission.
