Arrangements

These are by Bax unless otherwise stated. There have been countless arrangements of his works by others over the years, and this list includes all those that achieved publication together with a selection of the more interesting unpublished ones.

Durations

A timing is given for each work (except songs). This is the duration of an actual performance known to the compiler and is intended as a rough guide for other prospective performers. Estimated timings, prefixed by c. (circa), are given for works that have never been played or for which no duration is recorded.

Publishers, manuscript repositories, and other sources

1. Publication details usually refer to the work’s most recent incarnation, but the situation is fluid, and it cannot be guaranteed that the score will still be available. Long out-of-print editions, such as the scores originally published by Murdoch, Murdoch & Co., are not listed but may be found in A Catalogue of the Works of Sir Arnold Bax (Oxford, 1999).

2. Publishers’ contact details will be found on their or their distributors’ websites, which are listed below. Where a publisher appears to have no website of its own, others sites, such as sheetmusicplus.com, amazon.co.uk, etc., may be consulted.

3. ‘Unpublished’ means that the work in question has never been made generally available for purchase, though some publishers may be able to provide authorized photocopies of original manuscripts, copyists’ scores, or computer-generated scores upon request.
