R. Clyde is a music publisher specializing in the works of Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900) - the leading English composer of the Victorian era - and of in-house composer Roger Harris.


For more information about our recent publications of music by Roger Harris, visit our What’s New page. (All music by Roger Harris may be ordered direct from R. Clyde.)


Our Sullivan catalogue concentrates on the composer's non-Gilbert works, as the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire is well catered for by other publishing houses. It can be divided into three main areas:-






Of primary importance, the SULLIVAN EDITION is an ongoing scholarly edition based on the original autograph manuscripts and authentic first editions whose printing was supervised by the

composer himself.


Each volume presents the work exactly as Sullivan wrote it-for instance, the operas, oratorios, cantatas and orchestral works in full score.


Each volume-which is available in either a hardback library edition or a more economical softback edition-has an informative Preface discussing the creation and performing history of the work, and a detailed Editorial Commentary detailing variants between the autographs and printed editions.



PERFORMING EDITIONS includes publications such as vocal scores, chorus

parts, and libretti, plus full and miniature scores of excerpts (such as overtures) from longer works. Some are based on reprints of the original 19th century editions supervised by Sullivan himself; others are completely new editions. All receive the same editorial care and attention as the SULLIVAN EDITION.


Orchestral parts for all of Sullivan's works published by R. Clyde (and for many other works by Sullivan, as well as major classical composers from Bach to Vivaldi) are available on hire from the publisher. In some cases, vocal scores, chorus parts and libretti are also available on hire.

Please note: The distribution - sales and hire - of all Sullivan music is now handled by Christopher Browne. All orders and enquiries should be made to:
