About us

The Early Music Company (formerly King's Music) specialises in performing editions of 17th- and 18th-century music. Roughly half of the catalogue consists of facsimiles of original printed sources (from keyboard music, through orchestral music by Albinoni, Locatelli, Tartini and Vivaldi as well as Avison, Mudge and Stanley, to vocal sets like Byrd's "Gradualia" and Rosenmüller's "Kern-Sprüche"), the remainder being newly typeset editions (again ranging from medieval monody to complete operas by Clifford Bartlett's favourite "early" composers, Handel, Monteverdi and Purcell).
As well as these, The Early Music Company welcomes requests for new editions – as suppliers to some of the world's leading festivals and companies (we are particularly delighted that our newly re-typeset "Dido and Aeneas" will be used at the Bolshoi!), and with a history of supporting students and young professionals, we have the experience and expertise to advise anyone looking for "new" repertoire.

If you have a straightforward order or a query about the business, send it to elaine (at)
If you're not entirely sure what you want and need advice on the catalogue or the music in it, or if you are an opera house or recording company wishing to negotiate a rights agreement, please write to brian (at)
We both look forward to helping you!
