Serpent Publications is dedicated to providing music suitable for playing in the home.

The first music published for that purpose was the sixteenth century polyphony which English speakers know best in the madrigals of Thomas Morley.

We specialize in editions of Renaissance Polyphony with modern clefs but otherwise containing the same information as the original players would have had. That is, there are not editorial barlines or other groupings. Any editorial emendations are clearly marked, and the parts are presented separately rather than in a score.

To download books for a small fee, or order printed hardcopies for a slightly larger fee, go to the Serpent Publications lulu.com store.

    in the past you mentioned your interest in the Lilypond – lute tablature.
    I have continued using Lilypond to produce tablatures, both lute and lyra viol ones, from 2.10.33, and now on 2.14.2.
    You can take a look at how they appear here (image files, not pdf, so the resolution is low):



    If you have questions, please use the e-mail

    Through a Google search I found a posting from 2012 listing some instruments for sale including a Roessler bass recorder. Is that instrument still available?! (I couldn’t find further updates.)
    Thanks for any help.
    (By the way, I have encountered your site before – I think there are a several pieces from it in our home collection of ensemble music – thank you!!)
