Early music mourns a core publishermain
We have been notified of the death of Clifford Bartlett, whose King’s Music publishing company brought to light and edited a host of baroque and early scores for modern-day performers.
Bartlett, a quiet man with two handicapped adult children, was saved by leading artists from losing his home in 2015 after his business was crashed by fraudsters.
I’m sure all musicians will be saddened to hear of the death of Clifford Bartlett, whose scholarly editions of early music published through his King’s Music company have played such an important role in the development of early music in the UK and further afield pic.twitter.com/bPdo0JFc46
