In 2012, Paul Hindmarsh launched PHM Publishing to satisfy a growing demand for his editions of brass, wind, orchestral and choral music. In 2001 he was invited by the family of Wilfred Heaton to produce new editions and realisations of this Yorkshire composer's unpublished work. The Wilfred Heaton Edition includes all major works and smaller instrumental pieces and songs not published by The Salvation Army.
Paul Hindmarsh's other projects have included commissions from publishers and promoters to provide revised editions of three works from the 20th Century. Flowers by the Forest by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett was commissioned by the BBC for the 70-piece National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain to perform at the 1989 BBC Proms. "My rescoring was completed with the composer's approval," Hindmarsh explains, "to make this fine work more accessible to normal sized bands." Bellna by John Golland has been re-edited for brass bands at the request of the publishers and the Golland Trust.
The complete PHM Publishing catalogue also includes music for brass, wind and voices available by direct mail from this website or from www.justmusicuk.com or www.worldofbrass.com.
PHM Publishing is also releasing new arrangements for hitherto unpublished works by the English composer Frank Bridge (1879-1941).
