A-cappella.com is a site that I have browsed through and purchased from on and off for a few years now, as some of you may have. I just learned tonight that Douglas has “closed the business.”
The one page that remains of the site is a simple announcement of his decision. At the bottom he writes:“I have made the very difficult, but necessary, decision to close the business. All customer service issues will be addressed and resolved to the best of my ability. I will respond to all communications as quickly as possible.I wish to thank all of the customers of A-cappella.com that I have had the privilege to serve while the company was in operation. Since I became the owner of the company in January of 2008, I have enjoyed being able to provide sheet music and recordings of fine choral music to singers around the world. Music can be a great force for peace among all people, and a source of personal joy for the performer as well as the listener. I hope all who read this will continue to create and appreciate music in all its many forms, throughout their lives.With kindest regard,Douglas Gray”Poignant. I have spoken to Doug on the phone and he is a genuine, nice guy. The love for what he does, and his dedication to it, was evident in his voice. I admired how this one man had a dream of supporting an art form and realised it, and I prayed for its continued success. Maybe he’ll be back someday! It’s a good dream.We need to keep moving forward for Doug and all arts organizations that struggle to keep their dreams alive!Onward!
