New Voices and Contemporary Voices
New Voices and Contemporary Voices were composer support schemes created by the British Music Information Centre which provided print and distribution services for composers at both the beginning and middle of their careers, looking to fill the gap for composers looking to publish independently.
New Voices focused on young British composers with the aim of raising the profile for emerging talent that exists outside of the support of commercial publishers or record companies, while Contemporary Voices aimed to represent a more established generation of composers.
The list of composers who were part of the Voices schemes are listed below. This scheme is no longer running, so if you wish to purchase any scores from these composers, please contact the composer directly via their own websites. If they don’t have a website please email us so we can provide you with appropriate contact details.
Please note that the rights for these works are retained by the individual composers.
