Well, we're on the downward slope towards Christmas now, but there's still plenty to do and even though it's slowed up, there is still new music being published. Here's a round up of the last week or two:
Barret's Oboe Method, a newly revised and republished edition.
Kuchler Concertino in D for violin, with playalong CD.
A new edition of Beethoven's Pathetique piano sonata from Barenreiter
A collection of 18th and 19th century pieces for organ in Enjoy the Organ 1
For recorder, John Playford's The English Dancing Master, which was hugely popular in the early 18th century.
For concert band, Conductor's March by Thomas Doss.
And for singers I have started adding Italian singing methods published by Ricordi. This week we have Vaccaj's Metodo Pratico and The Art of Vocalise. You can find them in this section.
Tomorrow is the last day for orders to be placed for instruments to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. It may be possible to despatch after then but delivery will not be guaranteed for 24th.
For Royal Mail, posting is as normal until 21st December. The next posting days after that will be 27th, 28th and 31st December. Orders can of course be placed on the website, but will not be processed until the next posting day. From January 2nd things will be back to normal!
Most if not all publishers and suppliers are closed from 21st December to 2nd January. This means that any special order items will not be despatched until the first week in January, at the earliest.
Have a great Christmas.
