" ... As the result of donations to the University of Melbourne given by both Louise Hanson-Dyer and J.B. Hanson, all the company's publications from 1979 have been produced with the financial assistance of the University of Melbourne. The involvement of the University has been substantial, notably since the signing in 1986 of a formal agreement of collaboration between the University and Éditions de l'Oiseau-Lyre. The company is now owned by the Lyrebird Trust, of which the University of Melbourne is a Trustee.
Since 1993, Éditions de l'Oiseau-Lyre has also received financial support for the publication of the Magnus Liber Organi series from the Monaco government and the SOGEDA (Société pour la Gestion des Droits d'Auteurs) of Monaco. The Fondation Francis et Mica Salabert, whose Musica Gallica series has as its aim the publication of the musical heritage of France, has helped substantially with the Magnus Liber Organi and other l'Oiseau-Lyre volumes of French music.
