Music manuscripts of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies (b. 1934); [1942?]-1992. Autograph, except where stated.
Dates not derived from the manuscripts are taken principally from the work-list in Stanley Sadie (ed.), The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians (1980), vol. 5, and Colin Bayliss, The Music of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies: an annotated catalogue (Beverley, 1991). Numbers preceded by the letter J noted against the title of each work were first published in Bayliss’s Catalogue, but are here cited in a later revision as used in Carolyn J. Smith, Peter Maxwell Davies: a bio-bibliography (Westport, Connecticut, 1995). See also Richard E. McGregor, ‘The Maxwell Davies Sketch Material in the British Library’, Tempo no. 196 (April 1996), pp. 9-19 and no. 197 (July 1996), pp. 20-22. Dates of editions cited are taken from The Catalogue of Printed Music in the British Library to 1980 and from the Current Music Catalogue of the British Library.
