Byrd Ensemble and Scribe Records wants to record your music

Byrd Ensemble recording session at Holy Rosary, Seattle
There is a growing number of active choral composers out there writing fantastic music!

Producing and sharing high quality recordings of your work is the best way to get your music out there and is now a requirement for some publications. We know how expensive it is to produce a recording. The cost of contracting professional singers, producer and sound engineer can easily add up to over $10,000 for a full-length CD.

In many cases, composers may not have enough money or material to justify producing a full-length disc so the Byrd Ensemble and Scribe Records would like to join forces to make that more possible.

One can purchase session time in 30-minute increments for $300. For this rate, you get to work with 8 Byrd Ensemble singers and have your music edited and mastered by Markdavin Obenza (yours truly), producer of Scribe Records.

The Byrd Ensemble and Scribe Records together have produced 6 recordings which have been featured in Early Music America, Early Music Review and Gramophone. Here's Tallis's Videte Miraculum from our latest disc.

Would you like to purchase session time but do not live in Seattle? We recently just did a session with the composer who lived in Boston over video chat and were impressed with the experience. 

Working with Kevin Siegfried on Google Hangouts

Here is Kevin Siegfried's piece, I Hunger and Thirst, recorded at that session. It took about 20 minutes to record it.

If you have any questions or are interested, please email Markdavin Obenza at

Hopefully with enough interest, we can make this happen!
