Many of the worldâ€™s most famous classical music publishing houses are part of The Music Sales Group. Novello & Company, Chester Music, J. Curwen and Sons, G Schirmer, Edition Wilhelm Hansen, UniÃ³n Musical Ediciones and Bosworth are just some of the international publishers who, taken together, form the worldâ€™s largest independent holdings of classical music. Between them they represent some of the greatest composers of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Our numerous song catalogues reflect a continuum of popular music stretching from the 1920s to the present day. Campbell Connelly, The Sparta Florida Music Group and Bosworth & Co are among the better-known collections. In addition we administer copyrights for various international sister companies. Music Sales also supports its own stable of songwriters who generate original material.
With facilities in the UK, USA and Denmark, Music Sales operates one of the worldâ€™s leading hire libraries. Concentrating on classical music the library also carries a large range of public domain material and represents the music of several major musical theatre composers, including Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alain Boublil.
Third Party Licensing
In addition to administering its own copyrights Music Sales represents the printed music interests of many other music publishers. These include Universal Music Publishing, Sony/ATV, Peer Music, Imagem, The Really Useful Group, and Chrysalis, and the individual artists represented in print by Music Sales include Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Abba, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Oasis, Adele, Leonard Cohen, U2, and Mark Knopfler. As well as publishing the works of these artists in our own publications Music Sales considers requests and issues print licences to third parties such as schools, choirs, and other music publishers for use in songbooks, instrumental arrangements and for choral, orchestral or ensemble use.
