RO Editions for Hire

We have a range of performing materials available to hire. We can also provide single items from the operas.

Vocal scores for some of these operas are available on IMSLP. Vocal scores of the period often have typographical errors in them, are sometimes hard to read, and at times don’t actually match the original full score. Very, very gradually, we are producing newly typeset vocal scores which match the other performing materials.

For information about fees and other details please contact us using the form opposite/below, or (probably better) email Valerie Langfield direct at rcq@valerielangfield.co.uk.

The Boatswain’s Mate Smyth We can offer 3 versions: full orchestral (which is not actually ready yet, but can be if there is real interest), and two reduced orchestrations, ‘A’ and ‘B’, both of which Smyth herself made. The ‘B’ version is for just 11 players plus 3 for the on-stage band. Do note that for the reduced orchestration versions, Smyth cut the Intermezzo between Parts 1 and 2, and some of Part 2 Scene 8. The vocal score is available via IMSLP, so only the full scores and parts are available. Please email for details of the orchestral requirements
