Through the end of November, Presto Sheet Music is offering up to 25% discount on selected Oxford University Press titles, including 15 of Clarke’s finest. Featured items include many of Clarke’s most essential publications for or with viola, and several of her most beautiful (and useful) choral works. To sweeten the deal, the choral pieces qualify for an additional quantity-discount.
Presto’s international fulfillment has remained swift and affordable, even under COVID, so this is a bargain well worth considering.
Sheet Music Plus, one of the most comprehensive and reliable music-sellers on Earth, has just announced simultaneous sales on “New and Notable Music by Women” and on Oxford University Press titles, which together will give you a 20% discount on virtually everything in Rebecca Clarke’s retail backlist, so maybe it’s time for you to replace that tattered copy of the Trio you’ve been taping back together for the past four years (and save $16.40!), or take a flyer on Clarke’s glorious string-quartet movements (and save $9.20!), or invest in OUP’s big song-collection for the simple pleasure of studying “Tiger, Tiger” and “Binnorie” and seeing what real terror looks like (while saving $8.60!).
And even if you already own one of the Urtext editions of Clarke’s Passacaglia on an Old English Tune, you might want to throw in Schirmer’s reprint of their original 1943 publication, which preserves Clarke’s detailed markup of the parts. The viola and cello versions are now sold separately, but they’re a steal at $6.39 and $7.99, respectively.
The sales run through July 7. New titles, special orders, and on-demand items are not included. If you have any questions, our friend Shannon and all the other nice folks at Sheet Music Plus’s crackerjack Customer Service Department are soldiering on heroically from home, and you can reach them as usual at 1-800-743-3868, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Central Time.
