Francis, Day & Hunter Ltd.

Francis, Day & Hunter Ltd.

Profile:
Publishing company. Legally incorporated 11th February 1925.

The roots of the company were founded in 1877 by William & James Francis and David Day (as W & J Francis and Day, then Francis Brothers & Day); Day had experience in music publishing and the Francis brothers needed a publisher for their songs. Harry Hunter joined in 1880, and the present name was coined. Starting out in Oxford St., they moved to Charing Cross Rd. in 1897, becoming the first of the popular music publishers in what became London's 'Tin Pan Alley'. About 1900 David Day formed the Musical Copyright Association and was at the forefront of the battle against the sheet music piracy rampant at the time. Offices were opened in New York (1905), Paris (1920) and Berlin (1928). After World War I Francis, Day & Hunter became one of the most important publishers of educational, classical and popular music in Great Britain, a fact attested to by the abundance of their stamps. In 1945, the firm bought out the catalogue of B. Feldman & Co.

In 1957 the company became part of "Affiliated Music Publishers Ltd" (now known as EMI Music Publishing Ltd.) which was a newly formed holding company / alliance established alongside other publishing companies ( which included Robbins Music Corp. Ltd., Leo Feist Ltd.) for the purpose of worldwide exploitation and exchange of copyrights.
The company is now a subsidiary of EMI Music Publishing Ltd., but exists as a separate entity to the present day.
