Q. Do I have to pay to make copies?
A. No. After downloading, you are free to print and copy as many copies as you need for your performance free of charge. This means if you have a 40 piece choir you will only need to purchase a piece ONE time. Then you are free to print and make copies without any additional charge.
Q. How is it still legal to make copies after purchasing only one file?
A. It is legal because Latter Day Arrangements only works with arrangements of music and text in the public domain and original works.
Q. How do I download the piece after I purchase it?
A. When you purchase a piece you should receive an email with a link to download the file. Unfortunatly, this automatic email does not work with all email set ups.
Be sure to check your SPAM folder as sometimes the email is sent there.
If you do not receive the download email within a few minutes, please email us at [email protected]
Q. Will my download expire?
A. No. After purchasing a piece you may download it freely.
Q. Are there refunds?
A. If you are not completely satisfied please email [email protected]. If a refund is needed, it will be transferred securely to you through Paypal.

Q. How do I make my sheet music a PDF document?
A. Seeing as there are a variety of sheet music programs please consult your help resources for your specific program. That being said, generally speaking, if PDF is not listed as an option under your “Save As” menu then try looking under the “Print” menu as PDF files are often created through a “pdf printer.”
Q. How do I convert audio files to MIDI or mp3?
A. Most music programs allow you to “Save As” your music playback as MIDI. As for mp3 files, you can use iTunes to create mp3 versions of tracks. Set your import settings to mp3 encoder (iTunes – Preferences – Import Settings – mp3 Encoder) then right click the track and select “create mp3 version.”
Q. How do I compress multiple PDF files into a zip folder?

On a PC this is done by creating a folder, moving the PDFs into the folder and then right clicking the folder and selecting “Send to – Compressed (zipped) folder.”
