This is Randall Davidson's music publishing, producing, and performing website; his music publishing company boysartmusic.com has moved its content to this web address. Categories of information are: Home, Boys Arts Music (catalogue), Profile, Contact, Blog, and Products (ordering music). Most scores and parts can be downloaded or rented (primarily, larger works). Randall makes his living from his home in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. Since the mid-1970s, his work as a composer has been performed around the USA and in countries where English is spoken. This is a legacy site. New repertoire is being digitized and is downloadable. Some of the works for larger performing forces (large ensembles) are still available for rent. Music for the dramatic stage (dance, ballet, opera, music theater) will also remain for rent and may be the last works added to this site. The newly digitized Boys Art Music catalogue is downloadable. Many of the scores will have links to sample audio or will display score pages. Small works are arriving first, larger works later. Prices are affordable; performers will have an unlimited license to photocopy the scores in return for agreeing not to share. Customized print versions of score and parts will also be available.
A wish list is a powerful thing. By imagining a thing, it starts to become real. And so I share my wish here without a great deal of fanfare. These are works I will compose with a wish for a premiere:
a two-act comic operetta about aging singers set in a rest home
a music-drama for 13 instrumentalists based on the Gospel of St. Mark and the twelve steps found in the Alcoholics Anonymous BIG BOOK
a chamber work based on the four seasons as suggested by English illustrator and author Pauline Baynes for soprano, oboe and cello
a short Holy Mass for Empty Spaces filled with the Holy Spirit
Come back to this website again or friend Randall on Facebook. We will continue to upload works in the coming months.
