Copies of The Messiah

You'll need to bring your own copy of The Messiah to the sing-in. If you need one you can print it yourself (as noted above) or you can purchase your own. We'll be using the Schirmer's Edition this year.

Personal note: My favorite way to shop for books online is through BestWebBuys.com (at http://www.bestwebbuys.com/books/index.html ) Use the ISBN #0793505070 to find the best price on the Internet for the score of The Messiah.
