Express Print Music operated from a sales and distribution centre in Harlow, Essex. was the website of Faber Music. It was created to allow the purchase of over 5,000 different music publications ranging in categories from Songbooks & Sheet Music, Methods & Tutors, to DVDs & Videos, and Music Software. To music lovers and aspiring musicians this was a treasure trove. The domain registration eventually expired and the site disappeared from the Internet.

But do not be dismayed UK citizens. Visit their new website With it's new name, Faber Music's sales catalogue still offers, in addition to its performance catalogues, major music theatre works, and a superb educational music programme, the core of sales catalogue with its tutors, repertoire and educational publications by world-renowned figures in their respective fields.


I was an avid customer of and am now an avid customer of When I recently discovered that the domain for was available so I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its content from archived pages and to point visitors to their new site. I definitely didn't want someone else purchasing the domain and re-purposing the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website.

The depth of ExpressPrintMusic and now in its new iteration as FaberMusic has always impressed me. When friends ask me about the selection, I always explain their amazing catalogue in terms of the website that I now work for. CleanItSupply started out as an e commerce site selling paper products. I work in their paper towels wholesale division. The number of paper product and janitorial options they offer can likewise be overwhelming. They have Perforated Paper Towels, Multi-Fold Paper Towels, C-Fold Paper hand towels, and Roll paper towels in white or brown. You can purchase regular manufactured paper towels or eco friendly towels. For each of these types there may be a half dozen brands. When you multiply types and brands, you can see why some people throw up their hands. And when you consider they treat each of their products from janitorial supplies, restaurant supplies, office supplies to technology products and office furniture in the same way as the options you have with paper towels, then you might begin to understand why I make the analogy. Personally, I like have a lot of choices. It makes it easier to think outside the box and be exposed to different options that you might never have considered. Ah, but I digress.

Since the site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent.
