Melanie, I believe the score and the parts are available only through the composer himself. Unfortunately, his website seems to be down at the moment, but assuming he gets it up and running at some point, you'd probably want to go the "Contact" page and ask him directly.

Where can I purchase the vocal score for this music?

Actually, Jonathan, the commercial DVD release of the film "The Passion Of Joan Of Arc" comes with the Richard Einhorn music. It's not our live performance, but it is the complete score (as opposed to the Sony CD, which is somewhat abridged) in an equally compelling performance. You can find it online at and all the other usual places.

Beautiful! Powerful.

Any chance to get your live performance and the film on the same DVD?

As always, a wonderful show.
A loyal listener since first hearing Dolmen Music's debut so many lifetimes ago.
