How many copies may I make?
If choral directors purchase files from Earlene Rentz Online Publications via this website, the purchaser may make as many copies as desired for as long as the purchaser owns the file. It is a violation of our copyright to make copies for others and/or to share a file with another colleague.
What is your policy on returns?
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. However, if you download a piece of music, and are not pleased with the product, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com to discuss other options.
What is the download file format?
All downloads are in PDF format. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print them. You can obtain a FREE copy of Acrobat Reader here.
Can I hear the music?
Yes, each choral publication has a descriptive page featuring an MP3 of the piece using choral or simulated voices. Look for the word “Listen” and click the play/pause button.
Can I see the music?
Yes, each choral publication has a description page featuring a “Preview” link. Click on this link and a PDF featuring most of the choral publication will open in a new window. We recommend that you “Listen” to the MP3 while you view the Preview PDF in the separate window so you can listen to the music and follow the score at the same time.
What is a Rehearsal Preparation Sheet (RPS)?
