Faber became an established publisher of books about music in the early
1960s, under the editorship of the writer and musicologist Donald Mitchell.
After Britten wrote in a letter to Mitchell, ‘I occasionally dream of Faber
& Faber – music publishers!’, Mitchell approached the Chairman, Richard de
la Mare, who consulted Eliot and responded, ‘I have no idea how this can be
done, but clearly we have to do it.’ Faber Music came into being in 1965,
with Britten as its first composer.
