    Hello! I did recive from Sheet Music Plus the scores, on time. I shpuld use the royal mail because I am in Argentina, and the post here is not very reliable. Now I have the two scores of Britten folksongs arrangementsand I am rehearsin witn the pianist and enjoying them...

    a lot. Great music! both, the melodi, folkloric, and the arrangement, from Briteen's genious mind and heart! We will perform them at the Teatro Colon in Buenos AIres, 19, 20 & 21 July 2012. Thanks a lot for your services, I'll come back to you as much as I need.sincerelyVictor
