Founded in 2014, WHOLETONE began life as a collective of composers working on projects in music editing and music preparation, to generate income to support their own creative endeavours. In its life thus far, WHOLETONE composers have worked variously as copyist, editor, arranger and orchestrator on works including:


  • Peter Maxwell Davies' Violin Concerto No. 2 "Fiddler on the Shore" & The Trojan Games;

  • George & Ira Gershwin's An American in Paris (orch. Christopher Austin; adapted Craig Lucas and Christopher Wheeldon);

  • Joby Talbot's Winter's Tale & Everest;

  • Julian Anderson's violin concerto In Lieblicher Blaue and enemble piece Van Gogh Blue;

  • Thomas Larcher's Symphony No. 2 and recent opera The Hunting Gun

  • Gerald Barry's '____' and his Organ Concerto;

  • Thomas Adès' orchestral suite from the recent motion picture soundtrack for Colette (with additional orchestration and arrangement by Daniel Saleeb);

  • Frank Moon & Christopher Wheeldon's The Wind for the Royal Ballet; and

  • Keaton Henson's score for Young Men by Ballet Boyz.

Now, in 2019, having gained a wealth of experience working with the UK's major music publishing companies on music for theatre, ballet, film, opera and for the concert stage, WHOLETONE has taken the natural next step into small-scale publishing, whilst also remaining available as a music preparation service.  

WHOLETONE Music Publishing begins its life online as a publishing house specialising in singable, playable contemporary music, which includes arrangements of well-known tunes, along with brand new music by living composers.
