ERCU has an extensive library of music, which we are happy to hire to other choirs.
Please visit the Gerontius website to see if we have the item you would like to hire from us.
For all enquiries, please give the name of your choir and indicate which work(s) you require, the period of hire and the number of copies. Please also provide your name, contact number and email address.
Our terms of hire are pretty standard for this type of arrangement -
Having received the scores, please inform us immediately by email if there is any discrepancy in numbers or any damage which appears to have been caused in transit. You may otherwise be responsible for replacement of missing/damaged items.
Please calculate the hire period to include sufficient time for return of the music after your performance.
An invoice will be sent shortly after delivery of the scores and we ask for payment within one month of receipt.
We have no objection to your members using pencil markings on the scores but we would appreciate if these could be erased before return.
Please let us know when you are about to return the music (in case we need to provide an alternative delivery address or delay return) and advise if any copies are missing.
You are responsible for replacing any scores lost or damaged while on hire to you and we strongly advise that you use an insured courier service to return the music to us. Our invoice will include a note of the full replacement cost of the music hired, for your insurance purposes.
