MCA Choral Music  Library
Over 2500 titles and growing


Library update

We regret that our cost-share program is suspended for the 2019-20 season due to financial constraints. We are seeking funds to reinstate this program.


MCA Music Library Lending Policies

A current MCA membership is required to borrow music from our library.
Out of province borrowing requests will be considered (a borrowing fee will be applied, see below), but a current membership in a provincial choral association is required.

Orders must be made online (see button below).

Orders may be picked up at the MCA office or shipped via Canada Post. Shipping costs must be covered by the borrower. A shipping/handling fee will be calculated and invoiced after ordering; this fee includes return postage. Please note that return postage slips cannot be re-printed; please ensure that you keep the document.

New borrowing requests will not be considered until all previously borrowed music has been returned and all outstanding fees have been remitted. These include any shipping fees, late music fines, and missing score fees.


Choir Memberships: Free plus postage - multiple copies per title

Individual Memberships: Free plus postage - one copy per title

Out of province choirs who are members of their provincial choral association may borrow music at the following rates plus shipping/handling:

  • Scores 1-10 pages — $0.30 per score

  • Scores 11-20 pages — $0.60 per score

  • Scores 20+ pages — $1.00 per score
