|When VdGS Music Editions were first issued in the
1960s, they were called Supplementary Publications.
Their purpose was to make British viol music
available in good value playable editions. They were
carefully edited by enthusiasts from original
sources and written out in clear manuscript. There
are now over 150 titles in the catalogue. And these
have recently been typeset and are now available
with scores. Parts have been set with the
player's needs foremost. Where possible the parts
are still available in manuscript as an alternative
to typeset and alternative clefs can be requested.
Many VdGS Music Editions have organ parts.
In the last forty years many works by major viol composers have been re-published in collected editions. The VdGS publications save players from having to buy a whole collection in order to find out whether they like that composer. They can buy one or two titles from a collection which are generally fairly cheap and often include an organ part. Unattributed compositions and those composers with few surviving pieces are less popular with publishers and are often only available as VdGS Music Editions. The series includes some of the best of British viol music.
New editions are published once or twice a year and are available for an initial period to VdGS members at 10% discount. The series is edited by Virginia Brookes: telephone +44 (0) 1865 242591 or e-mail the distributor: Stephen Pegler e-mail me who welcomes suggestions for suitable publications of any viol related music or submissions of editions for publication.
