Music Press was set up in 1990 as a specialist music publisher. It was thought that the existing indexes and thesauri did not enable librarians and music scholars to find the information they needed, and also were published in some cases several years after the period they covered. It cannot be said that the ground was well covered. Probably we authors saw ourselves in the role of reformers, but we hoped at the time that we did not sound like an ill-tempered Klavier. The products were Musaurus and MusBib. We initially introduced MusDoc, but we discovered that three products were one too many for a small organization to manage.
