The Music Business: One Week Left

I think I can do this. I'm currently shooting for next Saturday (10/22) for the grand opening of Melkim Publishing. I'm still going through a laundry list of things that need to be completed. My printer should arrive Thursday or Friday, and then it will be one final mad dash to make last-minute layout changes. Then I'll flip a switch and be open for business.

I will open with 11 Christmas Selections under the Good Report Music imprint: a section of Melkim Publishing dedicated to the Mormon/Christian Music audience, presenting music meant to be performed in church services.

Six piano pieces will be sold both individually and together in a collection.

  • Joy ("Joy to the World" with "Ode to Joy" and "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" mixed in)
  • The Child ("O Come, O Come Emmanuel" mixed with "What Child is This?")
  • Silent Night
  • The Three Kings of Orient Are
  • The First Noel
  • Far Far Away on Judea's Plains

Five choir pieces will be sold individually.

  • We Three Kings for TBB & piano
  • Ding Dong! Merrily on High for SAB & piano & organ
  • Away in a Manger Medley for SATB & piano & flute (features three different popular melodies)
  • The Child for SAB & piano (a choral adaptation of the piano piece above)
  • The First Noel for SATB & piano (a choral adaptation of the piano piece above)

I'm looking forward to the big opening: 11 pieces to start off with, and I will be adding more in the months to come. In 2017 I will launch the other imprint, Melkim Classical, which will present secular pieces, targeting the general classical music fan.

Tell all your friends. There is new player in town, and we're going to rock this joint.
