Information on the website
The information that Koor&Stem vzw places on the website itself has been compiled with care; nevertheless, we cannot make any guarantees. Koor&Stem vzw wants the Koorklank website to promote works by Flemish composers (‘scores’ and ‘composers’); spread inspiring news and information (‘news’ ); bring together conductors, singers, and choir lovers (comment function throughout the site); and provide educational content and didactic tips (‘getting started’).
Koorklank uses and depends on various external services such as, among others, www.youtube.com (videos), www.vimeo.com (videos), www.soundcloud.com (audio), www.musescore.com (score player).
Koor&Stem vzw is not responsible for any technical defects.
Legal framework for scores
The choral scores published on Koorklank are distributed with the permission of the lyricist and composer as part of the operations of the Koor&Stem vzw organisation for the promotion of Flemish choral music. The digital version thereof may be downloaded and shared for non-commercial purposes without written permission from the Koor&Stem vzw organisation, the lyricist, or the composer. The name of the lyricist and of the composer is always stated. Permission must always be requested from the lyricist, the composer, and/or the copyright management company of your country for arrangements, translations, recordings, and performances (concerts). The lyricist and composer guarantee that they are not affiliated with SEMU cvba as music publishers and that this composition is not covered by the SEMU cvba remuneration scheme. They confirm that this composition is not published by a music publisher affiliated with SEMU cvba or that they have obtained the express permission from the publisher affiliated with SEMU cvba to publish this composition on the Koorklank website. However, they will inform Koor&Stem vzw if they decide to join SEMU cvba and if SEMU cvba should then be entitled to manage the rights to this composition.
