Shorter House is a specialist choral music publisher. We produce liturgical anthologies and composer collections, as well as individual pieces. We seek to discover and curate the best in new choral repertoire.
Shorter House is essentially a family business. Since 2010, we have published over 100 titles, commissioning over 20 new compositions. Our works have been premiered, broadcast, and recorded dozens of times. The Blossom Street (Naxos) CD of our Christmas collection “Sleep, Holy Babe” was Classic FM Christmas CD of the year 2011. We have had pieces featured on BBC1, BBC Radio 3 and 4 as well as many other local and international stations. We have received favourable reviews in: Choir and Organ, The Organ, Church Music Quarterly (RSCM), Organists’ Review, Muso and Classical Music Magazines.
We have attended every Assocation of British Choral Directors’ annual convention since 2010 (except 2015). Sadly, it has been cancelled in 2020.
We are stocked by all major UK retailers, such as: Blackwells, Presto, Foyles, South London Music. In the US and Canada we are distributed by C. F. Peters Corporation (New York). We also distribute some third party titles that fit our catalogue.
We look forward to building our catalogue and working with more composers and performers over the decades to come!
