Renforth Music

An independent, Canadian choral music publisher of contemporary composers.


This year is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Lucy Maud Montgomery. Her books are well known and loved all over the world. She also wrote 500 short stories and 500 poems, the latter tending to show a darker side of her nature. One such is Night set by Stephanie Martin for SSATB with cello in which the writer says ‘I walk with solitude as with a friend’ and ‘I welcome this communion of the dark’.

a small voice whispers
A Small Voice Whispers (SATB a cappella) by Stewart Wilkinson is newly published. It is a 'simple but effective' (Matthew Emery) piece that reflects on Canadian residential schools. The composer has gone to great lengths to make this piece authentic by working closely with First Nations representatives and using Plains Cree for the text. Its level of difficulty would make it practical for high school and community choirs.
nothing gold can stay - l'or ne peut durer (français)
Stephanie Martin's Nothing Gold Can Stay (SATB) is now available in a bilingual (French/English) version, which will receive its first public performance by the National Youth Choir in May 2024 at Podium in Montreal.
