Peacock Press (JPH)
Peacock Press, operated by Jeremy and Ruth Burbidge, recently bought John and Jenny Edmonds’ retail business, JPH (Jacks, Pipes, and Hammers). Peacock Press continues to publish in facsimile some of the wealth of neglected music by English composers, and those living and working in England, during the late 17th and the 18th centuries. Jeremy and Ruth are now working in cooperation with the Practitioners of Musick to publish a series entitled Britannia’s Invitation: a Treasury of 18th Century English Vocal Music, drawnfrom the collection. The first eight volumes in the series are in press and were introduced at the Boston Early Music Festival and Exhibition in June, 2007 and at the London Early Music Festival in November of that year. The series includes rare music composed by Maurice Greene, Thomas Augustine Arne, and George Frideric Handel, amongst others. Facsimiles can be obtained from Peacock Press.
