Pro Musica Spiritus editions are manufactured using the latest digital software for music and text typography, and they are printed with UHR inkjet technology on the finest archival book papers available. Our editions truly set the standard to which the new generation of music publishers must aspire.
But technology is only a tool, and whilst it can enable, it cannot create.
To create a musical edition that meets the highest standards of quality requires people who can use that technology intelligently, with the ultimate goal—performance—kept firmly in mind at all times. Pro Musica Spiritus takes great pride in the skill, knowledge, and artistic excellence of the editorial and design teams who are collectively responsible for the appearance and content of our scores and parts. All editions are based on extensive research and are produced with a particular attention to such crucial graphic elements as staff scaling and page turns, layout stretch and line breaks, and staff and system spacing. The result is an edition of the utmost musical integrity, with scores and parts which satisfy the differing needs of conductors, instrumentalists, and singers.
We publish four categories of editions.
Please note that we do not publish digital editions.
All editions are supplied in an eco-friendly, unbleached twin-pocket folder for easy archiving in your music library, and are printed on high-quality, acid-free book papers. We use a buff-coloured, 80-lb. text for scores and parts; score covers are printed on matching 120-lb. vellum and all editions are saddle-stitched so that they will lie flat on music stands for easy page turns.
Our editions will last through many years of mark-up and erasures, and are ideal for solo and ensemble performers, state and university music libraries, and other users who require scores and parts which can withstand the rigours of constant use over time.
•All instrumental works come with a full score and one complete set of parts.
•Choral works which comprise instrumental accompaniment come with a full score and one set of instrumental parts. Additional offprint copies of the choral score are available at substantially-reduced prices to purchasers of these editions.
•Unaccompanied choral works come with one copy of the score. Additional offprint copies of the score are available at substantially-reduced prices to purchasers of these editions. Instrumental parts extracted from choral scores are also available as offprints for these editions.
•To accomodate keyboard players who do not read figured-bass notation, keyboard realisations (fully-notated keyboard parts) derived from the continuo parts are available for certain editions. Please note that keyboard realisations are not available separately, but must be purchased with the full edition.
