Our primary source of funding is commission fees for our editions. Similar to commissioning a new work from a living composer, ensembles funding one or more of our editions are recognized in the scores and have the right to the modern premiere performance. This is a unique way to commemorate an event or memorialize a loved one and allows ensemble members to take an active and exciting role in the preservation of our musical heritage.

Our reason for publishing this music is to return it to its rightful place in the literature. As such, the easiest way to support our research is to purchase and perform our editions. Scores and performing materials are available directly from the publisher, as well as through all major sheet music distributors.
