Music Publications

Amherst Early Music publishes four player-friendly editions of music. The books lie flat on the music stand and the pieces have no page turns. The repertoire is accessible and playable for a number of different instruments, and is not available in other modern editions. All four are important musical sources that tell us a lot about historical practices at the time they were written or printed.
