As of 1st November 2022, we are sole distributors of The Early Music Company catalogue. Titles will gradually be added to this website to enable customers to buy direct.
As always, the business leads with Dido and Aeneas, by far the best seller. It has been completely reset (in Sibelius) and thoroughly proofread against original sources. Only the score is available for direct sale. Performing material is only available after the negotiation of rights, etc.
The same applies to its frequent partner piece, John Blow's Venus and Adonis.
The "red" and "blue" versions of Clifford Bartlett's Monteverdi Vespers have been combined into a single volume for the same price as 1990 (£15!) And the new typesetting (with corrected Italian!) of the same composer's opera, L'Orfeo is now available.
The latest addition to the catalogue is Vivaldi's ripieno concerto in G minor RV156, commissioned by Rachel Podger.
The last year or so has been very challenging for us, with multiple orders returned because of the new import duties caused by Brexit. We are delighted to announce that we are partnering with specialist music printers in Germany to fulfil our overseas orders, which will mean that customers will no longer face delays at customs and additional costs. Thank you, Aurioprint for agreeing to support us!
With more than 200 new titles since we last produced a detailed listing, our new 28-page catalogue surely has something to tempt anyone. You can download a PDF copy by clicking HERE or you can request a printed copy by clicking HERE. Whether web browsing really isn't your thing, or you just prefer to have a copy lying around, we hope this will help you find what you're looking for. If not, tell us and we'll consider making an edition JUST FOR YOU!
If you have any ideas for new editions, we would be delighted to hear about them!
