Our reductions generally retain at least one of each original instrument, achieving a faithful reproduction of the composer's original colors and full-orchestra sound. There is no keyboard fill-in as there is in many 'pocket' arrangements.

Our editions comprise the complete operas. No music has been cut, and in some cases we include extra music not always found in the standard editions. We sometimes provide commonly-done transpositions of select arias in addition to the composer's originals.

Parts are professionally engraved, printed and bound. There are no paste-ups, inserts, or hand alterations.

Wind parts have been transposed for modern instruments.

Onstage and backstage music (banda) is incorporated into the pit orchestration.

Timpani and percussion parts are combined into one multi-staff part, to be covered by a single player if necessary.

Attention is given to minimizing performance mishaps, since rehearsal time is often short with opera—courtesy accidentals, liberal use of cues, clarinet transposition shown on every page, attention to page turns, etc.

Great care is given to accuracy. Since our editions are printed digitally, we are able to correct any errors as soon as they are found, rather than allowing them to languish as with engraved printing.

Unlike with many reductions, we always provide a full score, showing both the original and reduced orchestrations. Score and parts all have rehearsal marks and/or measure numbers.

Motet Music Publishing Company offers a generous three-month rental period and a flat rental fee—no grand rights or per-performance charges.

ABOUT (Synopsis)
The opera tells the story of W.P. Inman, a Confederate soldier who, after being treated for wounds he received during the battle of Petersburg, chooses to desert the army and make his way back to his beloved Ada Monroe. Inman knows that the Home Guard is hunting down deserters. Emotionally gutted by the horrors he has experienced and desperate to see Ada again, he decides to take the risk and begins the dangerous journey home. When Inman left for the war, he believed the war would not last but six months. It is now four years later. Ada, a Southern lady once used to a life of privilege, has now been forced to deal with a life of profound deprivation. With the help of Ruby, a resourceful mountain woman, Ada's life has been slowly transformed. The women help each other, not only to endure the war, but also to grow in ways that are both unexpected and profound.
Cold Mountain, set during the American Civil War — the pivotal conflict in our nation's history — is the story of a soldier who wonders whether the violence he has endured has in some way ruined him and made him unworthy of love. In the struggle to answer this question, Inman is forced to examine where his real allegiance lies. Is it to his country? Is it to a cause? What is at the center of his soul? What are the core principles that he needs to abide by to feel essentially human again? Cold Mountain, like The Odyssey, on which the novel is loosely based, has at its center a transformative journey.
