RPS Corporate Member
Faber Music Ltd was founded in 1965, as a sister company to the distinguished book publisher Faber and Faber. Seeking a publisher that would offer the highest score production standards and tailored services to promote and disseminate his works, it was Benjamin Britten who triggered the venture. The principles on which it was founded have been the company’s hallmark ever since. Shortly after its birth, The Times newspaper called Faber Music “the new champion of quality in music publishing”.
Fifty years on, the company is now one of the leading independent British publishers of classical, contemporary, media, and printed pop and educational music, enjoying a reputation as one of the most influential publishers of serious contemporary classical music in the world.
