Music Engraving Services

Scores are produced on a price per page basis based on an underlying basic hourly rate of £22.00. As projects can vary so much depending on the complexity of the music and the size of the ensemble from single instrument parts through standard chamber ensembles to standard or large orchestral set ups the following list gives an idea of what cost to expect. Please contact me by email for a quote giving me as much information as possible about the project.

I do not provide printing or binding services. The finished project will be a PDF document sent to you electronically.

I have worked with Sibelius since version 2 and was a beta tester from version 5 to version 7 when it was taken over by Avid. I also work from "Behind Bars" by Elaine Gould as the bases of engraving rules.

II have undertaken major projects for both the Haveragl Brian Society and the Sorabji Archive. For the Brian Society I have typeset Symphony No 9 and the Concerto for Orchestra both of whch were used for recording projects. I also collaborated on the new vocal scores for the Gothic Symphony used for the 2012 proms performance and I am currently working on the huge Symphony no 3. For the Sorabji Archive I have typeset the truly monumental Jami Symphony, 4.5 hours of unbelievably complex music written for a double sized orchestra, two large choruses organ and piano. Samples of these scores can be found on the respective composer pages.
