Faber Music Ltd was founded in 1965, as a sister company to the distinguished book publisher Faber and Faber, for the principal purpose of publishing the music of Benjamin Britten. It now enjoys a world-wide reputation as one of the leading independent British publishers of classical, contemporary, media, and printed pop and educational music.
Alongside repertory works by Vaughan Williams, Holst, Britten and Arnold, its performance catalogue features one of the most distinguished lists of House composers including Oliver Knussen, Jonathan Harvey, George Benjamin and Thomas Adès. Faber Music handles the concert works of Paul McCartney, major music theatre works such as Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, and Carl Davis's renowned scores for great films of the silent era. It has also developed, with a strategy founded on quality, integrity and creativity, a superb educational music programme spanning both pop and educational music and tailored precisely to the needs of the market both in the UK and abroad.
At the core of Faber Music's sales catalogue are tutors, repertoire and educational publications by world-renowned figures in their respective fields, including Fanny Waterman, Paul Harris, Mary Cohen and Pam Wedgwood. Its choral publishing programme is acknowledged as one of the most significant and innovative developments of the last decade. The catalogue also includes a wealth of high-quality publications meeting the needs of musicians in professional, teaching and recreational environments.
Faber Music's now substantial media division represents outstanding internationally-established composers of music for film and television, and through its subsidiary Rights Worldwide Ltd offers a specialist service of copyright administration to media composers and production companies.
