Works by Louise Talma
While some of Talma’s works have been typeset and published, the majority of her music is published only as copies of her own fair copy manuscripts or is not published at all. This lack of availability has contributed to Talma’s works not being performed in the years following her death. This project makes Talma’s works available for performers and scholars. New editions will be added as they are complete. For copies of Talma’s manuscripts, email KendraLeonard at pm dot me.

Works by Julia Perry
Composer Julia Perry, like Talma, studied at the Conservatoire Américain, one of only a handful of African-American students. Perry’s early works, many of them based on spirituals, were published by various companies; later, scholar Helen Walker Hill edited some of Perry’s works for publication. As part of Leonard’s work on Perry’s life and music, she is creating editions from Perry’s manuscripts. New editions will be added as they are complete. For copies of Perry’s manuscripts, email KendraLeonard at pm dot me.
