British Music Society

The British Music Society was founded in 1979 by a group of musical enthusiasts, both amateur and professional, who wanted to try to combat the generally perceived indifference by music lovers to home-grown British music. The society's President is the composer and pianist John McCabe.

The society has more than six hundred members worldwide, was granted charitable status in 1995, and has its own imprint and three record labels - BMS, BMS Historic and Environs.
