Would I be correct in thinking his music will be out of copyright next year, given that he died in 1939? Do we think there's any chance of the scores becoming any cheaper?

 

Unfortunately, there's no chance of them getting any easier to play!

The simple answer is no unless any other publishers eventally bring out their own edition. All the time music from French publishers such as Hammelle, Leduc &c., have to be bought via UMP they will be expensive. This is a nonsense which I have mentioned before.

See relevant sections in "Everything Else An Organist Should Know" by Robert Leach and Barry Williams. (Obtainable from Organist Publications Ltd.)

I'm unclear about this. Will it become legal to photocopy the published editions or to publish them on the web?

 

Hi

 

No - the copyright on the printed page is a seperate issue. Although the music itself will pass into the public domain, copyright (in the UK) exists on the actual printed edition for 25 years from date of publication (IIRC).

 

Every Blessing
