... where we spent some time this summer working on the new catalogue. We are now back in London and dealing with the backlog of orders.
The revised catalogue, when it is finally completed and loaded, will be considerably more informative and will contain important additions.
It will also - less welcome - introduce price increases to the items that Ourtext inherited from Merton Music. Those prices were always unrealistically low, and they have now been frozen for more than a decade. We did not want to increase them until we had achieved a much higher standard of legibility and accuracy. That we feel we have now done.
This year's price increase is the minimum that will give Ourtext a reasonable chance of survival.
Finally, may we thank those supporters of Ourtext who have helped in the raising of standards.
