We are very pleased to find most of the viol music of William Cranford (~1630) that we publish played by the excellent group 'LeStrange Viols' on the CD FCR905 (www.NewFocusRecordings.com) Included are all of the fantasias a4, a5 and a6, as well as the impressionistic In nomine a5, and the scary (to play!) Go From My Window variations, also a5.
The second volume of Lessons for the Base-Viol, by John Moss, which comprises Suites 5-8, in ffedf tuning, is on its way. For Lyra viol and bass.
Not exactly New Editions, but newly possible to hear played, by Fretwork, no less, on the CD "Sublime Discourses", Regent REGCD341: Martin Peerson's 7 Fantasias and Almaines a6, first complete edition published by PRB in 2000, edited by Virginia Brookes (VC039); and John Milton's Three Fantasias for Five Viols, first modern edition published by PRB in 1996, also edited by Virginia Brookes (VC030). See the catalog on this website for full details!
Carel Hacquart: Cantiones Sacrae, ten cantatas for two to five voices, strings, and/or continuo, edited by Pieter Andriessen. To be published separately.
Claude Debussy: Menuet and En Bateau, arranged from his Petite Suite (piano duet) for six viols. Recently PRB made arrangements of these two movements, and the movement "Cortege" for recorders, and these will appear later this year.

NEW INFORMATION ABOUT OUR EDITIONS
You can hear some of Belinda Reynold's "Custom Made Music" on her new website (http://custommademusic.com/) devoted to this project. She plays the Secondo part in two of her piano duets (PRB Edition ED007), and two of her piano solos can also be heard (ED009). In another segment, she explains the purpose of "Custom Made Music" and introduces a mother-daughter combo to play some of the piano duets.
Lucy Bardo, editor of our edition of Schenck's "Nymphs of the Rhine" (Le Nymphe di Rheno: B036) has just compiled a list (fortunately, very short!) of errata for this edition. Three of the errors were caused by inadvertent migration of clefs, and there were a couple of missed accidentals. Please send us an e-mail request for these errata (PRBPrdns@aol.com). If you purchased a copy of this edition from us since June 2013, all of these corrections will have been made.
