About Aurea Capra Editions


With guiding principles of beautiful music and beautiful design at its heart, Aurea Capra Editions embodies excellence in the quality of its arrangements, editing, engraving and publication – an achievement that has been recognised by numerous publishing awards. Our aim is to create music that is not just beautiful to play but also a pleasure to own. 

Elisabeth Parry and John Alley began by publishing a few of their own arrangements to use on courses. From that modest beginning in 2019, Aurea Capra now has an ever-growing catalogue of arrangements and new music for flute and other instruments distributed, performed and enjoyed around the world.

Every Aurea Capra publication comes with downloadable piano backing tracks recorded by renowned accompanist and recording artist John Alley, formerly Principal Keyboard of the London Symphony Orchestra.
