Rehearsal CDs

Chorus singers may like to know that we are now in touch with two companies who are preparing chorus rehearsal CDs for A Symphonic Mass and A Litany.   

On the rehearsal CD you will hear the complete accompaniment and all solo and choral lines, with your line picked out clearly and audibly - just follow along in your score!

A Symphonic Mass will be performed at Truro Cathedral on 23 November  by the Three Spires Singers and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

EC4 Music will perform A Litany on 26 and 27 June at St Brides Church, Fleet Street.   Please see the George Lloyd website for more details of both concerts.

If you would like any more information about the Rehearsal CDs please get in touch with us here at Lloyd Music - using the contact form found at

Recordings etc.

CD Stock

Following the demise of PDO (Philips Dupont Optical - the first CD manufacturing plant in world) our CD manufacture moved to the USA, which was our largest market.  In order to meet demand during the Centenary year, certain titles are now manufactured once more in the UK, and we have good stock of 5th Symphony, Requiem, Music for Brass (inc. HMS Trinidad March) and Symphonic Mass.   George Lloyd Society members pay £10.00 each. 

Cassette Stock

It is with great reluctance that we have decided finally to delete our excess stock of cassettes. The sales dwindled to a trickle and has now stopped, and we need the space in the warehouse, so this is positively the last chance to acquire cassettes before the remaining stock is destroyed.  The cassettes are free of charge to members - you pay only the postage,  at cost.  

Thank you once again for your interest in the George Lloyd Society.

  

William Lloyd
