Latest News

A new work has recently been published by Nadia Daniels. It is titled THOUGHTS OF YOU and was written towards the end of 2016 for solo piano as a Christmas present for her husband, Steve Marsh who subsequently arranged it for two guitars. This is a beautiful, romantic and very melodic piece ideally suited to the Intermediate standard guitar duo.

Another relatively recent publication includes a concert work for solo guitar titled BY LINDISFARNE by Steve Marsh written as a Christmas present to his wife Nadia. This work lasts approximately seven-and-a-half minutes and features many contrasting sections from the romantic and lyrical through to a lengthy dramatic middle section, concluding with an extended Coda which has an original Christmas-like theme. The piece has been recorded by Brian Farrell on his CD 'BY LINDISFARNE - THE MUSIC OF STEVE MARSH'.

Also new in the catalogue is CANARIOS. This is an adaptation for four guitars of the celebrated dance by the 17th century Spanish composer Gaspar Sanz. Although scored for guitar quartet, this arrangement was written with a larger ensemble in mind, with several players doubling up on each part and was first performed in September 2015 by the 20 students taking part in the Bakewell Guitar Ensemble weekend (directed by Steve Marsh) in Derbyshire.

Another recent publication is A MOMENT ALONE. This is English guitarist/composer Chris Dumigan at his lyrical best. A Moment Alone is a beautiful, elegant composition well worthy of the concert platform. It was premiered by Valerie Hartzell at Warrington Parish Church of St Elphin on Saturday 14th November 2015.

Also recently released is an album including SEVEN MEDIEVAL PIECES (taken from the 119 Italian medieval manuscripts held in the British Library, London) all brilliantly arranged for solo guitar by Greek guitarist Stathis Skandalidis.

Also released recently is a revised version of HOMAGE TO MANITAS by Steve Marsh, a lengthy 'rumba' for seven or more guitars of varying grades. This new edition contains two solo guitar cadenzas and lasts approximately seven minutes. The work is dedicated to Derek Hasted.

Why the name Lathkill?

Within a few miles of the headquarters of Lathkill Music Publishers lies one of the most beautiful places in the United Kingdom - the central region known as the Peak District. Within this area lies Lathkill Dale which, not only is it a favourite place for wildlife and walkers alike, but it was also the favourite spot for the publisher's dog, Daisy. Hence the name!
