Asian Materials

Hi!
 
Just enquiring how you people here gather Asian materials, besides from Earthsongs? I'm personally finding it a bit hard to find catalogues with Filippino choral pieces for purchase and also Swedish pieces (but the latter isn't a concern for me now at the moment :P)..
 
Hope to find an answer here.

Here's a ChoralNet resource on Filipino choral music, and here's the general resource area on international music.

 Hi!
 
It's really hard to find published Filipino works but here are few of the readily available pieces.
 
1) Awiting Bayan para sa Korong Pilipino Songbook - Edited by Verne de la Peña
15 new choral works and arrangements in various Philippine languages. This new arrangements of songs are from a wide range of traditional sources, which are given contemporary treatment. This is recommended for use by choral directors and enthusiasts tired of performing the same frequently heard songs.
 
2) The NAMCYA Anthology of Philippine Choral Music Book Vols. 1 & 2 - Edited by Verne de la Peña
A compilation of Philippine choral composition by 23 Filipino composers, with works made for children, youth, college and mixed choirs commissioned by NAMCYA from the late 1980s to 2003. Compositions represent styles of the late 20th century Philippine music.
 
3) Check out the website of Mr. John August Pamintuan, conductor & composer. http://www.johnpamintuan.com/
 
4) Check out the Pavane Publishing page of Mr. George Hernandezhttp://www.pavanepublishing.com/Site/36/
 
5) Check out the Novo Concertante Manila webpage, where conductor Mr. Arwin Tan sells his works. http://www.novoconcertante.net/
 
There are scores only sold here in the Philippines. Also, there are still lots Filipino works just waiting to be published. Probably in the coming years, you should watch out for works of Mr. Eudenice Palaruan, among others.
 
I hope I was able to help. :)
