SATB: with Two Pianos

From: sisterquoh(a)telis.org (Mary Kuo Turner)
Subject: 2-piano compilation

Dear Choralisters,

Here is the compilation (LONG!) of 2-piano, 4-hands or 2 keyboard
accompaniment compilation that should have been submitted a year ago. I
apologize for the delay. This project has been on my back burner due to
heavy load at work.

Many special thanks to the following people who gave me fantastic list of
titles: Dr. William J. Bullock, Doug Fullington, Nina Gilbert, David
Griggs-Janower, Charles Hausmann, John & Susie Howell, Donald Kendrick, S.
Scott Leaman, Mike Molloy, Kirin Nielsen, Hans Oostendorp, Anna-Lise Pasch,
Bob Prowse, Len Ratzlaff, Harry Searing, Dr. Patrick O'Shea, Robert
Saladini, Harriet Simons, Larry Stuckenholtz, Reginald Unterseher, and Judy
Zuckerman. Special thanks to Jean Sturm for sending a comprehensive list
from the Musica Database. There were other people who contributed but
unfortunately, I do not have any record of their names. Regardless, my
sincerest gratitude to everyone.

If there are other titles that you would recommend, but are not on the
current compilation, please e-mail me. I would appreciate any additional
information for my master's research.
