Orchestral Scores

Omni Music Publishing

Released in the summer of 1989, Tim Burton's gothic depiction of Batman was a worldwide phenomenon. Danny Elfman's soundtrack, performed by the Sinfonia of London and conducted by Shirley Walker, utilised a massive ensemble including more than forty different percussion instruments. Now the complete score, featuring every cue from the film, is available, carefully reproduced and edited from the original handwritten manuscript.

Available Format: Sheet Music

This overture is a twelve-minute work for small orchestra. Sibelius conducted the premiere performance in Turku, Finland on 7th April, 1900, but it was not subsequently performed until conductor and scholar Tuomas Hannikainen discovered the existence of the score during his research in 2019. He has edited and reconstructed the work, now available for study in this edition.

Piano & Harpsichord

Following the first two volumes of their pioneering edition, Bärenreiter now presents Couperin’s Troisième livre of the Pièces de clavecin (1722). In addition to the six “Ordres”, the edition also contains the four “Concerts royaux”. Editor Denis Herlin has evaluated the many reprints of the original edition, most of which he unearthed himself in international libraries. All variants are meticulously recorded in the Critical Commentary.

It offers students of all ages the opportunity to charm listeners with familiar melodies from The Magic Flute, Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and other popular works.

Einaudi’s first full solo piano album for twenty years is a manifesto for life and a statement for our times, when the world around him was quiet and silent. This matching folio features the album's twelve intimate piano tracks. Featuring his trademark melodies, the music was written while Ludovico was isolated at his home in Italy.

Choral & Vocal

The composer Joseph Martin Kraus was born in the same year as Mozart, and like Salzburg’s famous son, he was highly gifted and died too young. The Miserere was composed in 1773 during his student years in Erfurt and is evidence of his technical abilities at the age of just seventeen.

Full Score also available.

In this sensitive choral arrangement for SSATB unaccompanied choir of Nimrod from Elgar's Enigma Variations, Michael Higgins sets the Eucharistic hymn 'O salutaris Hostia' for the Feast of Corpus Christi. The familiar melody passes seamlessly between the voice parts, and Elgar's rich soundworld is perfectly emulated by the choral textures.

Of all of Ivor Novello's hugely-successful musicals, Perchance to Dream received the longest run of performances. The smash hit was We'll Gather Lilacs, which was published separately just before the musical was launched. This choral arrangement may be accompanied by either piano or full orchestra.

Also available in arrangements for SSA, SAB, and TTBB choirs.

These entertaining pieces will be great fun for school and youth choirs to learn and perform. The texts cover a wide range of topics that not only feature in the History syllabus for Key Stage 2 (Romans, Vikings) and Key Stage 3 (World War Two, the Industrial Revolution, the Enlightenment, the Wars of the Roses, and the Peasants’ Revolt), but which will also be of interest for science and nature lovers (the World Wide Web, Dinosaurs and the Big Bang!).

Facsimiles

JS Bach's harpsichord concertos are noted down in a manuscript that is probably the most important document from the Leipzig “Collegium Musicum”. The autograph offers revealing insights into his working methods, elucidated by Christoph Wolff in an accompanying essay. This facsimile in high-quality four-colour printing reproduces the extensive score in its original size; BWV and bar numbers on every page facilitate its use.
