  • New editions now online

    I’ve finally managed to add two new editions to the catalogue, namely Robert White’s beautiful Magnificat and Thomas Tallis’s extraordinary Gaude gloriosa.

    Also in the final stages of preparation is John Browne’s six-part setting of Stabat virgo mater Christi. This is a fine piece, on a double cantus firmus, but has been rather neglected, probably because three of the six voices need re-composing for the first third of the work. In this slightly daunting task I was fortunate to collaborate with Dr Magnus Williamson of Newcastle University. Even if I say so myself, I think we did a pretty good job.

    I’m also looking forward to working on Ludford’s Lady Masses for a forthcoming volume of Early English Church Music.

  • On my desk at the moment

    I'm currently working on the music examples for a forthcoming book entitled A Companion to Medival Motets, to be published by Boydell and Brewer. That, combined with editing the programme book for this year’s Three Choirs Festival, hasn’t left much time for very much else, but I should have some new editions available soon.

  • Cantus Firmus Music is open

    Cantus Firmus Music is now open. Here you’ll find all the editions I publish, as well as details of the other services I offer.

    I’m delighted to have available some editions by Sally Dunkley. Sally’s name will be familiar to those with an interest in early music through her work with groups such as the Tallis Scholars and The Sixteen. She is also an expert editor, and the first of her editions to be made available here is Tallis’s beautiful Christmas Mass Puer natus est nobis, which has been recorded by both Stile Antico and the Cardinall’s Musick.

    I’m working on a number of new editions, including more pieces from the Eton Choirbook, and I’ll post more about these as they progress. To keep up to date with this and all my other news, please join my mailing list.

    Thank you,
