About Commissions

Kingfisher Music can only accept commissions for works that are in the Public Domain.

The Staff Arranger, Stephen C Barnwell, undertakes all commissions accepted by Kingfisher Music unless otherwise stated in advance.

The timeframe for completion is within three months from the Commissioning Date.

The prices for Commissions, unless otherwise stated in the initial correspondence, are:


  • Brass Band - £100

  • Concert Band - £150

  • Symphonic Wind Band - £200

Those making a Commission receive:


  • A Full Score and Set of Parts within three months of making the Commission.

  • Full recognition of the Commission with the details printed on the Title Page of the Score.

  • The right to premiere the resulting work within a period of six months from the date of completion of the Commission (this period of time is open to negotiation).

Kingfisher Music will retain full ownership of the Copyright for all completed Commissions.


After the premiere Kingfisher Music will publish the Commissioned Work.


The Commissioned work will then go on general sale and become part of the Kingfisher Music catalogue.


The published work will continue to display the full details of the original Commission on the title page for all sales of the published work.
