"Saraband Music is located in Kilcoy, QLD, Australia. Saraband Music began in 1994, selling sheet music and facsimiles, strings and CDs. Publishing began in 1996. In 2004, the business changed to mainly publishing, and the string business was sold to Ian Watchorn in Melbourne. From 2007, Saraband Music continued to publish early music under both the Saraband and Hammer & Tongs Reproductions imprints, and introduced a new range of music and interesting products for customers, including antiquarian maps and cards. A private collection of old books, including many first editions is also being sold.
Saraband Music is owned by Patrice Connelly, who has the degree of M.Mus (Hons) from the University of Sydney.
