"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

About Us

Established in 1972 by Ramsay Silver (1931 - 1996), we are now regarded as the most comprehensive service available for the supply of choral music.

In February 2014, Rosemary & David Goodwin bought the company when Margaret Silver retired. Rosemary has worked for the company for 25 years and David previously worked for the company back in the 90's. 

The Eboracum Choral Series contains over 500 titles mainly by modern composers and arrangers. Dr. Francis Jackson, the highly respected Yorkshire composer and organist has been the series' general editor for many years. We have recently introduced a new series: The Eboracum Popular Choral Series in response to the growing number of requests for lighter repertoire. In addition to choral music, we publish a select number of pieces for organ, piano, voice, and other solo instruments.

Archive & Distribution
A very important part of the work we do at Banks Music Publications is the archive services. We can supply copies of out-of-print choral leaflets from the following companies: Oxford Univeristy Press (choral & vocal), International Music Publications (IMP) - EMI, Warner Chappell & Belwin Mills, and Williamson Publications. We also act as distributor for a number of smaller catalogues including the Cramer Choral Catalogue, Grove Music (Gwyn Arch's male voice arrangements) and The Mansel Thomas Trust. A complete list of of the companies we represent is available on request.

We hope you find our website both informative and easy to use.
