What sheet music did you buy last and why?

I misplaced my copy of La Catedral and had the sudden urge to play it again. So, I bought the Stover and Burley versions. Then I found my old copy and another version I didn't even know I had, so now I have a lot more La Catedral than I need :lol:

Liszt's piano transcriptions of seven Bach organ works, published by Dover. These are pretty literal and excellently done, so if there are other pianists out there I highly recommend it. I don't buy much guitar music...I've collected enough free/public domain things to keep me busy the rest of my life as far as the guitar's concerned.

Per-Olov Kindgren's, "August" from his suite, "Twelve Months of the Year."
It's a level 2-3....intermediate.....and it was only $2.

The Bärenreiter urtext editions of Clavier-Übung I, II and IV. The Bärenreiter publications are hard to beat.

Per-Olov Kindgren's, "Arie," an arrangement of JS Bach's, "Mer Hahnen Neu Oberkeet" (We have a new governor) (from Cantata BWV 212)
Most Bach pieces are too advanced for me. This arrangement is 'level 2-3'......which would be intermediate.

The Classical Guitar Compendium by bridget Mermikides. Has studies and all music/pieces are accompanied with recording...wonderful book. A little advanced for me but I'm working on it and gives me nice challenge.

"Solo Blues Licks" from Griff Hamlin's, "Blues Guitar Unleashed" website. It's a downloadable course on one and two-bar blues licks. ....not exactly classical material, but I'm enjoying it.

Not sheet music - but a Hal Leonard Stum and Sing: Blues.

I don't know any of these pieces (because I'm not big into blues) - although they're all famous/well known.

I bought it mostly to practice blues chords - and for the history/lyrics...

I always find history more interesting and "real" when I can relate to it directly in some way...

I bit the bullet and got both Bärenreiter volumes of The Well-Tempered Clavier. A little pricey as far as music books go, but very well made and a "clean" score (no fingerings or other such editing). I think they'd be great for any musician/student of music, not just keyboard players.
