Welcome to Alan Bullard’s official website!
Alan Bullard is a UK composer whose music is performed all over the world. This website gives details of all his music, choral, instrumental, and educational.
As of April 2022, Colne Edition publications are no longer distributed by Spartan Press. They are now all available via this website, either as digital downloads, print to order, or (for larger works) on hire. It will take some time to update all the details, so if you need a Colne Edition piece, please visit the relevant page on this website for ordering details, and if they are not yet updated, please make direct contact with Colne Edition here, instead of Spartan Press.
However, pieces actually published by Spartan Press (i.e. not listed as Colne/Spartan) are still available from Spartan Press or any music dealer.
If you are looking for an individual download of my ‘Prelude No 9 (ABRSM Piano Grade 7)‘ then please go to Sheet Music Direct or Sheet Music Plus.
