Finnish choral scores

Dear colleagues,
Since last year, I have been searching for the scores to two Finnish choral pieces that I heard on an album by the women's choir Philomela.  I have tried contacting Marjukka Riihimäki (the conductor), have tried to find contact information for the composer, have tried asking on their facebook page, and have asked Sulasol but have had no success!  
Both pieces are choral arrangements of songs by Anna-Mari Kahara.  They are entitled:
Kuka nukkuu tuutussasi

Laulu perunoiden kiehuessa


Does anyone out there have an idea about where to find the scores for these pieces?  They are so fantastic ... I would hate to have to drop them from my program!


Many thanks,

Christina Murray

I am afraid it is notoriously difficult to get hold of scores by Anna-Mari Kähärä [that's Kahara with umlauts], as they are unpublished. I do not know Anna-Mari personally, but Sulasol being the principal source of information on all things choral in Finland, you might try asking their publishing manager, Reijo Kekkonen. I am sure he has fielded inquiries on this in the past. His e-mail is reijo dot kekkonen at sulasol dot fi.
Hope this helps.
