Welcome to Alan Bullard’s official website!
Alan Bullard is a UK composer whose music is performed all over the world. It is published by many publishers, including Oxford University Press, ABRSM, GIA Publications, and Colne Edition. This website gives details of all his music, choral, instrumental, and educational.
Alan’s ‘Prelude No 9 from Twelve or Thirteen Preludes, Set One’ is now in the ABRSM syllabus for Piano Grade 7 for 2023-24 (as well as in the current syllabus). This is no longer available from Spartan Press: for a digital download of the single prelude please go to Sheet Music Direct or Sheet Music Plus, or for a printed version please visit this page. The complete volume is also available as download or print from the same places.
As of April 2022, Colne Edition publications are no longer distributed by Spartan Press. Please do not order them from the Spartan Press website as it is very out of date. Colne Edition publications 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 (in theory) available from Spartan Press or any music dealer.
