In 2007 Stainer & Bell were invited to undertake completion of the ‘new’ Purcell Society Edition, a project begun in the 1970s to issue in 33 volumes a fundamentally re-edited edition of the composer’s entire output, replacing ‘The Works of Henry Purcell’ issued by the Society between the 1870s and 1970s. At the same time, the change of publisher marked the inception of the Purcell Society Edition Companion Series, which is now complete in six volumes as originally planned.
